I know, they have a lot of room and caves to hide in but I am afraid they will not winter well out there. The other goldfish over power them because they are slower. They are little booty wiggles.

Awe! Your going to save them from the weather outside and enjoy them in your home. Do they get to go back to your pond when the weather is appropriate for them again? (if so, you might not want to part with them and take them back ouside.) Looking forward to seeing pics when they get to go to their new home aquarium.

Thank you :). I think they will stay inside babies. I will keep the single tailed goldie's outside. I can't wait to bring them in. I am just nervous about their transition from pond to tank.

Why? Is it a long distance between pond and tank?

No, I guess because the pond is such a different environment from the tank but that probably won't matter. I will have to make sure I get the tank temp the same as pond (the pond temp range has been between 58-69 since fall).

Can you maybe fill the tank with pond water before transferring the fish? And then over the next few days just keep doing 25% water changes with fresh dechlorinated tap water to slowly transition them to the new water.

As for the temperature, when I have to move a fish to a warmer tank, I usually fill a 1.5g sterilite tub like this http://i.walmartimag...518_500X500.jpg

with the "old, cold" water, add 1 drop of Prime and have this tub float in the warmer tank until the temperature adjusts. With these plastic tubs being thicker and the water volume (there will probably be close to 1gallon of water in the tub) it will take a bit for the water temperature to rise.

I think the tub is supposed to be a "shoe box" and is sold under this description, but sterilite tubs are generally fish safe. Plus the fish spends only a very short time in it anyway :) The tub costs $ 1 at Wally World and I find it very handy for all sort of fish related stuff. :)

Thank you for this information. I could bring in buckets of pond water to pour in tank. I did not know you can get smaller shoebox size sterility tubs.
