Rather than start a new thread with roughly same question, thought I’d add onto this one.
I’m looking to cover the surface area of the pond for winter, what would people recommended, Perspex, tarpaulin, thick plastic sheet etc, was thinking maybe a timber frame with kingspan to insulate and Perspex attached to top, but using the kingspan was worried about 0% light getting to the pond, and if that would be a problem.
Thanks in advance, and hope people understand thought better adding to this thread than starting a similar new one.

Hi Tommy, I would steer clear of blocking the light as poor light does fade colours I have seen good tosai ruined by growing on in dim surroundings.
Tri glaze Polly carb on a frame would be fine seal the ends and have a gap between the water and insulation I would say of 6-8 inch min,
