It's better to have light shining though. I use plastic and this year I will stick bubble wrap over plastic as well so pond will not be in darkness unless extremely cold, then I will cover with blankets and snow. Some plants cannot winter well if dark for too long.
My mother had stage 7 Dementia and I have reversed and she now talks well and knows what's going on. She reads the paper and tells me the news. There was a time last year before CBD oil, and she was completely catatonic and could not talk, eat or respond. She eats very well now and I am so proud of her now
I don't currently have any plants. Would I need to have plants for oxygenation purposes for the fish?

I wonder if a waterproof grow light on a timer under the cover would be helpful or just create a nasty algae problem to deal with in the spring? My "reef" aquarium light over my freshwater tank caused me quite a bit of algae issues for a while until I figured out not to turn it on for more than 6 hours a day.

A tank looks Fuzzy and green with alage but one does not notice the alage in a pond as long as it's not too long and out of control.

The more I think about this (and the more leaves I dig out of the pond), the more I think someone needs to start manufacturing clear dome pond covers. It would not be that hard to do if one had an acrylic molding plant for making things like window well covers.
