Question by Talsier: What temperature do garden ponds get to in the summer in Texas?
I’m told that certain fish I’m going to get for my pond can’t survive above 25 degrees Celsius (77 F) I need to know if a 4′ deep pond(around 5,300 gallons) gets above that. It is shaded.
It’s not Koi or Goldfish, it’s Diamond Sturgeon and they CANT survive above 77 degrees. I need to know the temperature that ponds get to.

Answer by pondlady
Your pond will be fine even at less than 5′ deep. I am not sure what special fish you speak of, but koi and goldfish live in 18″ deep ponds in New Orleans and have for 25 years. And it gets as hot here as it does in Texas.
