Overwintering lily with pond fish in garage?
The water temp in the pond is dropping now with all the cool nights lately, down to 50-55F. This year, after a near total fish loss due to disease, I am planning on wintering the remaining 2 shubunkins, 4 baby comet fry, 5 minnows and trapdoor snails in a 50 gallon stock tank in my insulated but not usually heated garage. I will be putting in a bubbler for sure and also a heater if needed to prevent thick ice.
This is my first year trying this method of over-wintering - seems almost too easy...
Can I also put the cut-back water lily (Perry's Almost Black) as well into the same tank?
