    Mine live out all year but the pond is 9ft deep and they have mud at the bottom to go in in the winter,they spend most of the summer basking at the side of the pond and then disappear to the bottom in the winter,but think you would have to put them out soon to get them climatized:)

    Thanks everso for your reply. That is a really deep pond, we wouldn't be able to go more than about 3 to 4 ft deep so by the sounds of it, it wouldn't be suitable.
