Pond fish can generally be kept at room temperature as long as it doesn't get too cold. As for problems he'll face, Bass and channel cat get really big. Blue gill are territorial. The bass and the bluegill may tear up plants.

150 gallons is only big enough for the bluegill, the bass and the catfish will quickly outgorw the tank. Good luck with planted that tank too, all those fish will tear it up.

You will want a low temp heater to keep the tank stable. While 150 gallons will resist swings better than a smaller tank, a lot of work buildings turn off heat/AC after hours. A building can change temp quite a bit during these off hours, enough that I would still want an insurance policy (heater) against swings.
