    Platies make good warm pond options.

    Wild type bodied goldfish are faster and can easily out-compete round-bodied goldfish.

    See, that's my dilemna. Florida is warm, but during the winter months, we do get a few days where we get frost. Mind you its not a deep frost, but that would drive the temp down on the pond.

    I need to know what fish could withstand those temps. I am thinking either koi, or shubukins, as they are nicely colored, and don't get up to 3 feet in length.

    Just because they are stunted does't mean it's a good idea to repeat.

    Koi will outgrow it since they can hit 24-36".

    Stick with varieties of goldfish. You can do either round-bodied (fantails, moors, etc.) or long-bodied (shubunkins, sarassas, comets, etc.).

    Just my (canadian) two cents but:
    Why don't you see what kind of fish are living naturally in the stream and pond in Florida, and see if you can find some in a LFS?
    sometimes there's really gorgeous fish, that we just don't know...
    Sasquatch has a book on all the fish living in north america, perhaps you can ask him for some clue?

    i know it doesn't help very much, but I don't know a lot about "natural" fish (I don't know the real term in english, sorry).

    In most places LFSs are not allowed to sell native species, otherwise people would go out and take them all out of nature and sell them to the LFS.

    Owwwww.... Ok, make sense...
    Sorry, that was the only idea I have....

    Isn't there some minnow that grow large and can support cold and warm?
