With the cold weather and that hibernation thing, I don't think the big fish would eat the WCMM.

I know, they probably wouldn't, but the WCMM's don't know that, do they. The fact that there is no cover would make them more insecure too, like I said previously, because big fish are not the only threat to a fish the size of WCMM. Anything will have a go at them probably. Such as herons and even aquatic insects such as water boatman and water beetles.
Although, having said all this, I think small fish will be OK in the edge of the pond in winter anyway, lol. Although I still cannot be certain that WCMM's can survive the english winter.

Well in the winter you wouldn't have the problem with insects and most birds migrate to warmer waters. The WCMM do go into a state of dormancy as well, so they won't really know about predators. If your pond gets a layer of ice on top that will act as a bit of insulation as well.

Would it help to try adding some cover in the deeper sections of the pond? Maybe an overturned strawberry jar or some weighted artificial plants?

The water temp has been down to at least 8 Celcius, and the white clouds that I do see, seem to be fine. However I only see them at night time when some of them sleep at the surface. They appear pale coloured when I see them too, compared to how they were in the summer, is this a problem or not?

Pardon my jumping into this pond topic.. I plan to have a 50 gallon pond out front, and I am not sure if wcmm would survive in there here in Hawaii!

My question is actually about wcmm in a 10 gallon tank. I have 4 of them in there with 4 panda cory catfish... Any general comments about my set up are appreciated, as I have never kept wcmm before!

Mahalo! (Thanks)

Winters pretty much over now and I think none of the wcmm have survived, well I guess this answers the question "can WCMM's survive the winter in UK?" The answer is no, unless kept indoors have course.
