Mini pond is HOT!!


Recommended Posts

I have 2 mini ponds that have been set up since late April here in southeast NC. I’ve got golden white cloud minnows and rainbow fish on the way but I’m worried about my temps! One pond is a 40gal and the big one is 110. The big one gets more shade being off the deck but the 40gal is on my deck and only gets partial shade for small parts of the day. 

We’ve had highs in the low 90’s lately and nightly temps in the mid 60’s. Pics show the 40gal at 91 degrees and the big guy at 83. In the morning both tanks sit at around 76-77 degrees. 

Should I move the 40gal onto my screened porch??


Thanks for the advice!
