Moving Water Will Not Freeze


To keep the koi pond from freezing over, I have let the spitter keep running through the winter.

So far, so good.

I have 26 fish in this pond, which is about 4.5 deep in the center, and although I do not worry about the fish being stuck in ice, I do worry about gasses getting trapped beneath the ice.

These gasses can and will kill fish, so best to keep the spitter spitting.
