Is My Pond too Cold for Gar?
I have a 4,000 gallon outdoor pond which is stocked with a few medium size koi. I was interested in getting some longnose gar for my pond, but I'm worried its too cold. I live in Washington and the pond will freeze during the winter. its only 3 feet deep and I'm not sure if this too shallow for gar. I don't know a lot about these fish other then the water needs to be well oxygenated and if the pond is frozen they'll need a place to surface for air. if gar can live in my pond, I'd be interested in learning more about them.
