Default Insulation to cover a pond

Hi all,

Would putting insulation over the pond help during the winter? I will have an air bubbler and a de icer in the pond for the winter but wanted to see if I could benefit from a layer of rigid insulation over the pond. The pond is a small goldfish pond, only about 2.5 feet deep with 3 goldfish in it. I have a few friends who have gone many years with a 2 feet deep goldfish pond in Toronto without it freezing entirely. That being said, I wouldn't want to risk having a terrible winter in the next couple of years and have the pond freez entirely. So would insulation over the top help? If so, how much?

Thanks
