    Not only do you want to know when and when not to feed them, many of us use 2 different formulas within the "do-feed" temp range. Spring/fall and summer feeds.

    Usually, when the temp drops below 50F, they're not hungry anyway but if they did feed, the food is not digested because their metabolism slows and it rots in the belly.

            Ok just ordered 2. One for the pond which will have to wait until the 4 inches of ice melts and one for the hottub. So now that I have those I assume I need a receiver from
            http://www.rfxcom.com/receivers.htm. Can someone recommend a receiver. I'm all z-wave so this 1 wire/x10 or whatever it is - is all new to me.

            Thanks!

              You have 4" of ice in a pond in Miami?

                W2B, I monitor my hottub temp using a DS18S20 that in encased in a sealed tube. They seem to last about 6 months or so before they leak and stop working. For another $4 I do it all again. It's great to be able to monitor the temp - but I'm curious what your risk of freezing is in Miami?

                  I wish all I had was 4" of ice, here in Flagstaff I have 18" of ice, except where my electric doughnut is

                    We should have more here in New Hampshire but its bee mild as of late. Flagstaff is a great place - I worked out in Arizona and spent some there when passing through from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon. We have the heater too but its still alway a crap shoot in the Spring to see how many fish have made through.

                      It actually got up to 52 today, some of the ice thinned out at one end. I was out there with a breaker bar and managed to make a couple holes. My pond is 5.5 ft deep, and I saw a few Koi way down at the bottom. They appeared to be ok. Now all the snow has melted and I have 2.5 acres of mudd! More warm weather the next few days but then more snow. It has been an awesome winter this year, about 8' to 9' of snow this year so far

                        Wow...I think we're up to 50" this year but tomorrow is going to be 55 and raining. As they say...if you don't like the weather in New England...just wait 5 minutes...it will change.

                        What are you using to capture the temps from these floaters and get into HS?

                        Thanks!

                          Most users are using the RFXCom receiver and the ACRF2 plugin to receive these sensors as well as many others.
