    I'm curious what type of fancies.... wakins? I know a lot of fancy goldfish can't overwinter in colder climates.

    Nice fish and pond!
    Three tailed fish they call fan tails, usually.
    My fan tails have survived here, we are zone 6b.

    Mine are on their 3rd winter, this winter was warm, hardly any ice, but we have had ice coverage the other winters. I use the pond breather to keep a hole in the ice.
