Will do boss.  Very Happy

I started up my Aerogarden Ultra this evening for winter indoor gardening. I'll post progress on the following thread.

I discovered a disaster today. I usually keep the pump running on our small goldfish pond into the cold weather and turn it off in December.  The pond surface freezes over except where the waterfall keeps a small area open. Today I noticed the waterfall was not running.  When I checked I could see way down into the pond. My guess is that the plastic pipe from the pond to the waterfall froze and then leaked. As a result the pump emptied the pond. I expect I have lost the goldfish, could lose the waterlilies and may have fried the pump.  Will have to wait until next Spring to find out for certain but it does not look good. We have had this pond for at least 20 years and have never experienced anything  this before.

That's awful, TD. Sad I wish there was something you could do now, but I can't imagine what that could be. Sad

Sorry about your little pond, TD and it's flora and fauna. 

I used to have a little pond and in it I kept the two goldfish I had indoors that outgrew their little aquarium and they survived during the winter very well.  My pond did not have a pump except for the summer when the pond had a little fountain.
