Winterize 

        a pond

 

    Winterizing  a pond is necessary for the survival of the fish over the cold winter

months. The fish go into a hibernation stage and a hole in the ice must be left open 

for the fish to survive the snow and ice. The photos below, show how a pond deicer

and a aerator bubbler will create a hole in the ice. This will produce fresh air and 

oxygen and also release gases that the fish produce during the winter.

  When the fish are hibernating during the winter months, do not feed the fish.

Start to feed the fish in the spring season, when the water tempature reaches

55 degrees and above. A spring wheat germ food is recomended.
