Usually it depends on how cold the temperatures get during the winter in your area. What are the size of the tanks and how many gallons are in each tank? Are you planning on moving the fish inside during the winter or leaving them outside?

There has to be areas in the tank where the water won't freeze completely otherwise the fish will not be able to survive.

If you insulate the tanks and provide heating during winter, the fish should be fine. Try to keep them away from direct wind.

Feel free to make a post of your own in case you have an unrelated questions like this Tongue

A couple of months usually, but they can keep changing colors throughout their lives, especially black colors tend to fade.

i should think that it would be more practical to actually dig a pond. it would certainly make it easier to maintain a stable temperature over winter.

I would just like to add, in case someone sees this with the same idea.
My parents put two tanks outside as a water feature (no live stock in them) and I believe due to the weather one of them has a crack now and would not be useable for live stock. So I would personally not suggest keeping a glass tank outside for keeping livestock, for this reason alone.

Other factors as already mentioned would be heating - otherwise the entire thing could freeze, which is bad for livestock- it could be rather costly to heat it and to insulate the tank properly would possibly mean covering the glass sides, so it would render the idea of a glass tank outside rather pointless.
