    I'm with Ken, as long as it doesn't freeze completely solid, they should be ok. Winter here isn't as cold or as long as yours, but I've seen plenty of fish survive freezing weather in those sheep/horse water troughs.

    The saddest part for me was the 10yr. drought we had. We had no rain and with me paying to have water delivered for drinking and bathing, I wasn’t gonna give some to a $2.00 fish. Rude?yes, but all was fine when I got them. Heckfire, even the POS says greenhouse is a myth. LOL

    See I have been able to keep them with no heater even, but much bigger tanks. My worry is the tank being too small.

    In my buried hot tub, I had goldfish for years. Then one year, I had a population explosion of goldfish babies. Winter came and I failed to realize with their now vast numbers, that they changed things. They used up all the oxygen under the ice mass. Lost them all.

    I don’t allow my husband to paint, he does just the stuff I don’t know how to do

    Getting ready for stupid winter here in Houston . We've been having cooler nights . My big guys don't like winter. But for me it's a good time to build new enclosures without dying from overheating.lol I'll be building Sally a new enclosure this winter. Hal is getting huge ! He's too heavy to pickup by myself. So I don't know how much he weighs. 1540662320335.jpeg

    Wow! Your hair has grown LONG! Nice-looking sulcata. I don't like winter either, but thank goodness all my animals are ready for winter. I'm still working on winterizing the plants though.

    I'm really bummed out. My daughter came over this a.m. to trim Misty's toenails and she mentioned that my favorite shell station, just up the street from me, is now a Valero gas station. Dang it! I don't want Valero gas. Does anyone know if it's any good?
