    It depends where you are. Florida is often safe except in the coldest months. Also, it depends if the pool is heated. The water has to stay above 65 degrees for most species. If the pond is protected or has a deep end, that can help keep them in longer, but chances are if you want them to survive you’ll have to remove them around the end of September. PS-You’ll find they’ve grown a lot by then.

    first of all, no, not safe due to winter temperature
    second, the catfish and maybe the eel are predators
    after they eat your minnows they will go after your koi
    if they can’t eat the koi they will suck their eyes out
    damage their scales
