Question about Fountains & Ponds
Depends upon where you live. Goldfish come in many varieties...some cold hardy...some not. If you live in Florida, etc where the water temps rarely fall into 50 degree range, then go for some of the not so hardy goldfish. You could also try some tropicals (i.e. from local pet store) but these can get pricey and you should make sure they are as big as the gold fish now in the pond...otherwise you'll end up giving the larger gold fish a nice snack! Also, make sure you find out just how big those tropicals will get...they could end up eating the goldfish. The major drawback for tropicals is their lack of color, most of them will simply disappear in a large outdoor garden pond. There are some South American tropicals that are colorful but they are very pricey. All in all, the best fish for outdoor ponds are the various types of goldfish and or Koi. Do a Google on tropicals and see what you can find and also Google goldfish, you may be surprised at the variations!
If you have a mosquito problems, try some guppies...they are cheap, will eat the heck out of mosquito larva....you can barely see them but if you have floating plants they can survive the goldfish by hiding while they dine on the mosquitoes!

It depends on your climate. I would not recomend the same fish for Minnesota that I would for Nevada.
