I would not reccomend the combo, as the betta will most likely kill the shrimp. They will either be eaten or torn up as the betta plays with them.

For the most part, liquid water can only get to 0 C before it turns to ice. As long as there is liquid in your pond, the water is no less than 0C. This is why the pond has to be so deep, the earth...

What is the minimum age of the fish?

Zebra danios only have about 2 years in them. After that they will often get a curved spine and die.

If SG is rising, your salinity is increasing.

This is probably because of evaporation. Only water will evaporate, so if you replace it with salt water your salinity will go up. To fix it I would...

If you go deeper than ~3' you pond should never freeze solid. As long as the fish don't freeze solid in ice, they should be fine.

Half at a time if possible.

If not, you should be able to put them into a larger container and pour boiling water over them. A stainless steel sink would work well for this.

7 should be just fine for them.

On an unrelated note, that tank is way too small for those fish. The blue gill might be ok, but the bass and channel cats need something much larger.
