      hi, expat, thanks for your thoughts on this. i would only use the aerator a few inches below the water line to keep the pond from freezing over. my tank deicers failed and the new ones that i bought today, have even less wattage.
      still working on this.

      kgrl,
      And for any other person that does not understand the environment ...

      think of your pond as a house...with walls and a floor made of dirt/rock/fiberglass/concrete/whatever...BUT THERE IS NO ROOF....
      Now if you wanted to keep warm how warm would your house be if you put up a roof that was 10% of the surface area?
      How 'bout it covering 90% of the surface....

      Incompletely covering a pond is like having a house with a roof and leaving the sky lights...
      but that is why a thick covering of ice is insulation...till the ice forms your pond looses heat through convection (rapid loss of heat)...once a thick layer of ice forms you will still loose heat but more by conduction than convection and thta is SLOWER than convection.

      thanks, luke, that's what gene was telling me.
      so what about the hole, hmmm?
      handyman is coming tomorrow with propane to cut small chimney sized hole in 'roof,' say a foot or so in diameter. plan is to simply put in an air hose, no bubbler, just an inch or two below the roof to keep it from freezing over in that one spot for evacuation of gases. your thoughts?

      No to an air pump...the air can actually cool the water down to a detrimental level up where you live...
      If I did anything where you live and with that size pond I'd throw a small heater,1-2 kilowatt, in it...put it on a rope attached to a float and have it positioned just off the bottom..it might not do a thing..but it won't hurt.

      luke, was only talking about a small hose of air two inches below surface to keep a small air hole open, but happy to entertain idea of heat. why put heat just off the bottom? are you just thinking to provide warmth for fry? what brand name of heater or type of heater?

      Heat at the bottom because heat rises and it'd disperse more through the water would be my guess. That way you don't lose all the heat immediately to the surface.

      Answer to the question -- will fry survive the winter in mud?

      News for all who are following the ki shusui with a twist (of lemon hariwake) project.

      I threw some manda fu into the opening in the ice near the dock at lunch, and at 5:00 p.m., went to check with zero expectations --- I had to run back to the house for my point-and-shoot.

      results below.

      I didn't see all of the babies I remember from December and I did not see the special one who may be ki shusui -- but it's 400,000 gallons + and it's very possible that not all of the fry got the memo.

      Hoping to get better pictures in the morning.

      Look at all those pretty bobbleheads! Nice pics, Max. I needed a baby update.
      Still learning as I go but y'all can call me Marilyn

      I'll say something when I feel I have something worth saying. I'm not a fan of flapping my lips just because they are there.
