gee my planted gold fish tank on the back porch must be really hurting. I finally added a heater for instance when last winter there was a layer of ice at the water's surface.

Porch is closed in on three sides with a screen on the forth side. Temperatures can get down to 20F or so and occasionally lower.

Plants are the typical anacharis/vals and the like.

What type of vals do you have in that tank ? I'd like to put some in my pond that freezes several times over the course of the winter.

Don't remember all the specifics but giant ones with some smaller ones and some corkscrew as well.

If the pond is deep enough the plants will survive the winter at the bottom. How deep depends on how far down the frost line goes in you area.

But that is just my specualtion on what makes sense in rivers and lakes.

so worth at most .02
