Default Pond depth

Hello All

My pond is 5 feet in diameter, with a maximum depth of 22 inches.
This seemed to be the sort of size indicated on my pond liner instructions.

However, I recently read that a pond of depth less than 3 feet is
insufficient for fish to survive the Winter when the Pond freezes.

The pond was created this year, it contains 6 goldfish.
Please could anyone advise?

Regards Al.

Should be ok, we don't usually get harsh winters down here.

I'm in Somerset too!

I've recently moved to Bridgwater.

Yes, hopefully the fish will survive, but I had considered covering the Pond
when it's frosty.
Perhaps this would be unnecessary.

Regards Al.

I know you can't change the depth of pond as its build a year ago. But You can do one thing, you can plant some plants which can give worming in your pond to fishes.
