I am from Miami also and do keep tropicals outside, when it gets too cold I drop a heater on my pond
Thanks, We had an unusually cold week with night temps dropping to mid to high 50s and days maybe high 70s and I did just that as decided to leave them out all year.
Now it is back to normal with night temps high 60s and going to get warmer.
I decided that unless freak cold will leave them out as male esp loves it outside.
What tropicals do you keep?
