Before you decide on purchasing any new additions to your pond, we would suggest measuring your pond's water temperature. Fish should not be added to your pond if the water temperature drops to 12° or below. This is the point at which the fish lower their metabolisms and become dormant.

If the water temperature has already reached 12° or is fast approaching it, then we would highly recommend waiting until the warmer months have returned before you think about introducing any new livestock.
