    It sure looks chilly where you are. (Of course, it is getting into the upper 30sF here tonight, so cold enough here, too!)

    Others experienced in keeping koi in cold winter areas can comment more knowledgeably. I like the look of the 'roof' you have put on the pond and the ease with which it can be opened. It should help moderate water temperatures. It seems to me that some sort of insulation around the filters would be good, but I'm not sure what would work well and hold up to the elements until Spring. There is always bubble wrap and duct tape.
