They seem to be doing ok at 50 degrees or so. Not exactly eager feeders. The pond they are in is full of a bunch of green spheres almost 1 mm in diameter...i think maybe volvox? I've heard they eat algae as well so this might be a food source for them...not to mention the daphnia that always boom in the winter. I added some marine salt to the water but I doubt it is more than 10% seawater...worried about killing off the FW organisms such as the daphnia in the pond. I hope winter break to bring back some sea lettuce(Ulva) and associated critters to add to the pond and then bumping up the salinity to accomodate them. Worried about getting hydroids though.

I think that was actually a fish tank and not just a massive pond by the house with a window for viewing like we're talking about
I remember Hugh Hefner had something like that in his Chicago mansion--He kept bunnies in it.

Dragon gobies can be "converted " to full saltwater along with Scats, Columbian 5 Fin Catfish, Orange Chromides, Night gobies, Mono's and Archerfish to name a few. I don't recommend Chromides as much though. Most brackish fish are better suited for saltwater than fresh.
I would try it. u might have to watch the salinity a little but it should be do able.
I think it would be awesome to try a reef pond. make it big enough to dive in. maybe indoors to keep warm with windows to let light in. now im getting off topic. lol
