And back down to 10.3 today after two cold days and nights. the lowest I have seen so far this winter is 9.8 is it just better down hear in the South West or is it me and the way the ponds built setup running and covered

    I read that southern Ireland and the southwest of England have the warmest winter temperatures anywhere on the globe at 51 to 53 degrees north or south of the equator.

    Anywhere else at this latitude range is significantly colder, especially land locked areas that can be as cold as -50C.

    That's the benefit of warm air from the Atlantic.

    Don't confuse me with a climate expert, it all started when I googled why it was so cold in winter, and discovered that we are actually very lucky to be so mild.

    Know what you mean mate. Taken me 25 years of working to get into a house, and its modest to say the least, and only reason I managed that is cos the area where I bought my flat 19 years ago suddenly became up and coming so it turned a good profit, but still had to move further away from London to convert to a house with garden. Gonna be at least another 5 years before the house is renovated. Obviously the priority in the first few years was building a garage and a pond

    Location dartford, time 9:30pm, air temp 1c, pond temp 12c. Pond is heated half hr on and half hr off. Fish still feeding like mad. In fact I have to say since the poly carb has been put on they seem to be more savage when feeding. They are waiting for food as soon as they see the poly carb slid back to make an opening to feed.

    With the heater coming on every half hour but the air temp slowly dropping these last 6 weeks Iv noticed my pond temp go from 18 to 16 to 14 to 13 to 12, Iíll be keeping a close eye on the temperature these next few weeks and if I see it drop below 11 Iím going to increase the amount the heater kicks in I think. Fish are very active and fun at the mo so donít want a change in temp to change this happy fish keeping folks

    Itís been a cold few days and my heater has been on quite a bit. But the upside is that my koi are still up and feeding well, although only fed once a day now in the evening. This morning is another frosty start, but the last one for a few days as it is forecast to become briefly milder

    Current temp is-0.8įc and the pond is on 11.9įc.

    Those temps was over a 6 week period bud (not one day) just showing even with the heater kicking in every half hour the pond temp is naturally dropping.

    Slightly of topic! But what temperature will fish still grow at if still feeding? Reason I ask is I have a ochiba who I bought from the all England koi show, he was an absolute baby around 4Ē but have noticed he has grown quiet a lot even though the pond has been around 18c dropping down to 11c. I got him late of the year so heís only been with me in the colder months i didnít expect him to grow so soon. The others in the pond havnt really shown growth the past few months but he definetly has grown. Does me a favour tho really as I donít want him sucked down the bottom drain when the new ponds built The Daily pond temp threadThe Daily pond temp thread
