hi all, I'm Walt from New Jersey, climate is here is 6b

I have become an accidental ponder after rescuing 10 fish yesterday. "Found" the fish last week from a lady who will be moving to Florida next month, and didn't have anyone to give them a new home. Temps are too cold to dig and the fish will be over wintering in the garage, its already 20F outside now. Last night was the fish first overnight in their new home and I've been checking on them frequently like babies.

I have zero pond experience and limited aquarium knowledge. Most of my fish don't last very long, so l am here with hopes that you can help me see that these little guys and gals make it through the winter and provide advice when time comes in the spring to build them a nice outside forever home.

looking forward to meeting you all here and happy holidays to those who celebrate!
