Firemouth Cichlid in North Florida Pond


Recommended Posts

I’m located in North Florida with a 300 gallon pond with 5 goldfish, 6 plus corydoras and two very large common plecos. During the summer the water temps are near 95 and during our coldest the water temp is near 45-50. During the winter the plecos and corys make it through with the help of two 4” PVC pipes with heaters in the pond.  Today  I added a mature Firemouth Cichlid to the mix. It was a rehome from a coworker(science teacher). 

My question is how do you think the Firemouth will do in the winter? 

For perspective I’ve caught thriving Oscars in ponds in my area.
