Can Gold zebra danio's live in a outdoor pond? NEED HELP!!

Hello I am selling my gold zebra danios 5 of them and a person wants to buy them for a pond outside. Will they survive? It gets freezing temps down here in the winter and I'm sure the pond will freeze over in the winter.

Thanks

Well I think they are technically a coldwater fish but I don't know that they can survive freezing. 64-72 degrees is their preference I think.

Thanks treefork

Does anyone know for sure if they can survive?

I don't want to sell my babys for them to die.

If they would be taken in over winter, when the temp is too cold, it is possible that they would live, however, I don't think it possible to catch zebra danios in a pond, catching them in a 20 gallon tank is hard enough!

LOL yeah I had to practical empty out all the water in my 55 gallon tank just to catch them suckers when I moved. Good luck catching them in a pond.

they aren't that hard to catch in a pond, plenty of people keep summer ponds with tropical fish. you just have to use ingenuity. A fish trap made out of a coke bottle works well, or a large net settled directly under where you feed them.
