The pool is located underneath giant laurel oak trees surrounded by a screened in area. It'll stay cool enough (Tampa bay) and be protected by herons, racoons, etc.cover it with window screening so they cannot jump out and weighthe screening down .Test the water and use your pond water as much as you can .Make sure you do not feed them much and make sure you have a pump with a filter .Make sure the water does not get to hot .Is this temporary
I'm hoping that, given the safety precautions, it will last at least three, four years.The pool is located underneath giant laurel oak trees surrounded by a screened in area. It'll stay cool enough (Tampa bay) and be protected by herons, racoons, etc.
how about filtration? Is the pool pump that comes with it sufficient?
Okay. I also should've noted that the pool is in a screened in enclosure, shaded constantly by a group of large oak trees outside the enclosure.above ground pools may not last as long in high heat and the water in the summer will get very hot also .You could buy a vinyl liner for now and just put it in the old pond over the old liner as temporary .Those liners are cheaper but do not have a long life as they get brittle .But will last at least 6 or more years but usually less than 10 years
Is this a permanent setup or something to transfer them to while you build them a bigger in ground home?

Well, it's called a "cool deck", kind of looks like perforated concrete. It never feels hot. The pool is a steel frame snap pool.How hot does te concrete get ,if it gets hot from the ground up it may not last .Not sure what kind of pool you are getting ,blow up or snap set pool .Fish have jumped out of my stock tank holding tanks .You will also have to filter the water and test it .
