About hibernation...
If you get a large planter, fill it with Aqua soil (I get mine at home depot) your RES will probably dig in that to hibernate...or... If you can make a land area around your pond...mix soil, peat moss and leaf litter so this area has loose soil then put at least 6 inches of leaves on top of that she will probably dig under to hibernate in there. IMO, that is the better way to go. Also if you do hibernate her in the water, make sure that you keep a defroster in there with a protective gard around it so that if the water freezes there will be an air hole. Good luck.
