Questions about guppies
I recently acquired my friends guppies when she moved out of town. There are probably a couple hundred from tiny fry to preggo mammas. I put them in the pond & they love it. A lot more space than they had before.
How cold tolerant are they? the goldfish do fine in the winter but will the guppies need a heater? The pond is an old bathtub sunken in the garden.
I'm zone 9b, no hard freezes as a rule and if we do get any freezing weather it's usually only a couple of hours once or twice during the season, not enough to bring in the orchids even.
BUT it does get fairly cold, OK, for me, fairly cold, 50's average, some 40's and of course up to the 70-80 range.
There is a filter and pump in the pond.
