Pond is 3 feet deep, Hellclan.You mentioned a 30 inch minimum depth.I guess I'll be okay at 36 inches.I do have plants I'm pruning down to be submerged for winter.I've ordered the Farm innovators ice chaser brand de-icer which will keep a large surface section ice free.Thanks to all for the advice.

koi seem less temp tolerant than goldfish, so for the indoor pond idea.

They say that if koi(and perhaps goldfish) are exposed to freezing temps they often live only a couple years in the pond. The de icer should help with this problem though.

Let us know how things turn out!
