Hi all,

I've just finished making a new gardenpond that contains approx. 800
Gallons of water and has a deepest point of just over 3 feet.
My intention is to put in some American Native Killies, but I need to
which species would be best suited. (if there are any at all)

The pond is situated on the south-side of the house and gets direct
sunlight from about 7.00 AM till about 4.00 PM. The pond is already
well-planted and also various types of Algae are already thriving like
In summer the watertemperature can get over 30 Celcius, but in winter the
pond freezes over for up to 2 months. I do not use pumps, filters or

It is my intention to leave the fishes in there all year round.

Are there any American Native Killie-species that can cope with these
circomstances, and if so, which ones?

Thanks in advance.
