I have a 110 gal. watering trough "pond" in my front yard for some small water
lilies and other plants. I have tried gold fish in the past but none survived
the winter. This pond freezes over. There is water circulation via a fountain
which turned into a live water volcano during the freeze. This pond also gets
warm in the summer.

Can anyone recommend a native fish that would live in these conditions and even
possibly breed. I also need sources.

Although not confined to I am mostly wheelchair bound and cannot collect my own.

Thank you and have a good day!
