      Not unless they can winter over in the bathtub!
      No... I don't have a setup extensive enough to
      support them in good health inside over the winter.
      Wish I did...

      You?

      I wish I had the room to winter them over inside but I built a PVC frame for a net to go over the pond - doesnt look all that shabby. I'm ordering a big roll of plastic (got a good price) to go over it as well, let me know if you want some for your pond.

      Hey Sadia -

      I did the plastic thing last year and spent more time cleaning it and
      adjusting after snow that I'm not dealing with it this year. I'm doing
      a bubbler in the center with the leaf net in place and calling it a winter.
      Good luck with your frame. It will need to be incredibly solid to handle
      the weight of melting, New England snow.
