You would need a massive amount of power. Would be cheaper to build a small green house around it in the long run.

Haha I'm not sure! You'll have to research it. Glass is classic but there are some plastic ones that may work. It will probably be difficult to figure it out. O.o
I have 300 watts of heating on my 90 gallon tank, to keep it at 75F. Room temperature of the tank is 65F. This is considered the bare minimum for a 90 gallon. So, imagine for 240 gallons, at 25F up to 75F. That's a lot of heating.
I still don't know about putting one in with goldfish. It's a pond so it will be a lot harder to watch for agression.

EDIT: Look up pond heaters. I just remembered those exist. Will be way easier than trying to buy 40 aquarium heaters. :p

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

Aren't pond heaters just used to keep the water at a "reasonable" temperature and to prevent the surface from freezing over? I don't think they're meant to actually keep the water at tropical temperatures during cold winters.

It really is best to get fish that would be better suited for the environment provided instead of having to manipulate the environment to suit the fish. The more you need to manipulate a tank/pond, the more likely something bad can happen, not to mention all the added costs.
