Wow lots of great info. I was also considering some platies. I've been thinking it might be best to have the container in the ground. Some people in the area have koi ponds in the area and they never bring their fish in the house in the winter. And to be honest I realllly dont want to bring more fish inside. Care Koi hardier then platies?
