Will chinese hill stream loaches live in an outdoor pond through out the whole year, including winter, in the UK?

No...in the wild, they live in fast flowign rivers, and need high oxygen content to survive.

They work great in river aquariums.

The weather loach may work, but then you'll never see it.

Well, I actually wonder if they might. I believe the weather loaches also come from the same type region, and they do often manage to overwinter. It's kind of chancy, though, with either speices.

Actually, my pond has got a fast flowing area and the pond is well oxygenated. I use a strong pump to create a stream and waterfall area and the water is crystal clear.
