The ice is back on both my ponds and the fish are all back on the bottom, but it's suppose to warm up again starting today so it won't be long now for the Spring feel to get here

Mine had ice, but when the sun came out the thin layer is melting even though it is darn cold out there.

No ice here and only had a little bit on the sides of pond when we had the cold weather awhile back.

Pond cleared up nicely even with only 3000 gph to the bog it's making me rethink how to run my pumps.. The pond is 5'-6" deep and your looking through a layer of ice it always amazes me how well the bog keeps the water crystal clear.

We are back to a light ice cover which will be gone in about 3 hours. As soon as the sun pops up

@DCPlumber - welcome to the GPF! And what a cool pond!

We had ice on the pond on Friday, and 59 degrees yesterday. I don't think we've had ice cover for more than a week running this winter.

Pond is thawing. Sadly, I found a dead frog on my marginal shelf. Can't get it out of the pond today, but the ice should melt enough for me to remove it tomorrow.

My last Aquascape camera died and the other quit but think the problem is the cable running from the DVR. Not looking to buy 2 new cameras.

Luckily it was just my cable end that went bad, not the camera end but the long one that goes to the DVR.

Mine is up and running fully. I cleaned out all the filters and padsvand hooked up the smaller pumps a couple days ago. Pond has been running all winter with the main pump. I just need to hook up my smaller water feature pumps.
