I have a stream with a few small pools in it leading to the pond, and it has a few little waterfalls. I was wondering if WCMM's would prefer it in the stream rather than the pond, because they originate from the streams in the white cloud mountains of china, don't they? It is a reasonably fast flowing stream, although there are calm areas and some sheltered places.
So what do you think?

I have bought 6 white clouds today. Two males and four females. I put them in the stream and they seem fine. Although they are often hard to see because there are many places where they cannot be seen. There are some baby common minnows(born this year) up in the stream too.
Any way, hopefuly they will breed and spawn in the weed in the stream.
I still want to know if they will be able to survive the uk winter too? And also what is the max temp they will survive, because the water temp here in uk is now approx. 30 degrees Celcius!

Jbmac I am sorry I have not replied as I have been on holiday.

All your white clouds should be fine in the hot weather as you would probably have some shade for them. Are the white clouds able to get to the main pool? how deep is the stream and its pools?

The pools in the stream are from about 6 to 12 inches deep and yes they can get to the actual pond, infact I think most of them if not all of them are in the pond now and have formed a larger shoal with my older white clouds that I have had since may 24th.

Your white cloulds will be fine in the winter as the water is deep enough. They are happy in hot summer english weather. I hope they breed soon! Wink

Any more questions?

Are you a white cloud mountain minnow expert or something? Because you seem to be able to answer all of my questions. Don't you even have any doubts about them surviving our uk winter?
thanks for your answers by the way.

If I was you and owned that pond, I would be very confident that the wcmm would survive the winter. I am SURE they will be fine! Very Happy

Thanks for the info. Over here in the uk, the surface of my pond gets ice on it, but not at the base of the waterfall/stream. It never freezes more than a few inches deep. I think I will keep my white clouds outdoors for the winter and see how they do. If I see them starting to die or get ill or something I'll bring them indoors.

Thinking about it, that is a very good idea to keep a watchful eye on them when its colder. Rolling Eyes I still think they will be fine but yer never know.
