You will have to decide for yourself if you want the headache of keeping a running pond going in a freezing climate. I mean having a waterfall/stream going can be a chore to keep the ice dams broken up to keep the water flowing INSIDE the pond/stream etc. Use your heater and keep a bubbler pump going to keep a hole in the ice if you shut the falls down. You really don't need a heater as long as you keep a hole in the ice for the gases to exhange etc. Stop feeding your fish when you get in the 50 degree water temprature, but they'll stop on thier own anyway.
