I've been told for my little 125 gallon pond to put the plants in 
the bottom to keep them over the winter (it is deep enough for fish, 
so it should be deep enough for plants.

Then to keep the pond from freezing, I'm to keep the pump on to 
provide "running" water so the pond doesn't freeze solid.  The
man says running water doesn't freeze.  Why doesn't running water 
freeze?  I have seen pictures of Niagra Falls frozen over and it's
a little bigger than my pond. :)

What is the best way to keep the pond over winter in southern
Ohio, anybody know?
