So far my 1200 pond is doing really well.I have 3 holes @ all times to allow toxins to release.Every time it snows I shovel that layer off to allow the sun to warm up the liner,so far so good, with all three pumps working smoothly.
The fish are doing what comes natural hibernating underneath the waterfall ledge,only to come out to get warm from the rays.



So lets see your winter pics :highfive:

Yep this is turning into a very schizoid winter. Let's keep posting about what happens in our necks of the woods and see if it just goes gradually into Spring or zaps us w/ killing cold. Not meaning to change the subject but every time I try to click the more sign for the Smilies it never will go to that page anymore. All I have are the 15 on the front page :surfing:

Funny you should ask, this moring was the coldest water temps of the season at 39 degrees F. Today was cold and real windy but sunny, so the water temp went up to a high of 47 degrees F.

Hi I am new here and not sure how to post so I have responded to your posting. Pleased to meet everyone.
Good Evening,

I live in Hummelstown, Pennsylvania and have a seven thousand gallon pond with approximately 75 Koi of various types and sizes. I would like to sell some of these to a good home. I don’t know the exact breeds, but they range in sizes from 6” to 30”. They are great fish and are very much enjoyed by us, but I am interested in providing their personalities and friendliness to someone who will appreciate them as much as we do. At this point they under much ice, so you probably won’t be able to see them until another 2 months. If there is anyone interested or has questions, please email me (e-mail address removed)



Sincere Thanks,

Tony

digginponds, I use this http://www.chaneyinstruments.com/product/Deluxe-Wireless-Pool-and-Spa-Thermometer--Model-00617.html for my water temps. I just got this brand for Christmas, but so far I REALLY LIKE it. If you are interested you can check out ebay. http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=acu-rite+wireless+pool&_sacat=See-All-Categories
Glad it is working good for you koisrus mine still has yet to lose signal. Pond had been down to 31. The gauge is frozen in the ice though!

Thanks addy, if it wasn't for you buying and testing this model first, I would not have gotten it. I would never had thought that one brand would work so much better than another one. Thanks again!!
