    6500 gallon pond- I have 9 Koi between 16"-28" and approx. 50 of their babies....2" each
    20 gallon indoor tank-approx. 50 more koi babies...1 to 2" each. I change 15% of their water every two days as this tank is too small for that many fish.

    I think the guidlines are 1" of fish per gallon of water........not sure.......someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    10' x 10' x 22" - 1000 gallons maybe?

    I had 11 fish, then one disappeared, then one showed up a year later hiding away under the uv light holders in the skimmer, then one died, then a baby grew up large enough to see. So 11.. lol! I think that will be it for the pond. Any more new ones will need to find a new home.

    FYI, it's aprox. 360 gallons by your measurements. That's good info to know in case you have to treat with any medications, salt, neutralizer, etc.

    150 gallon pond- 3 goldfish, 2 small koi (although getting bigger quickly), and who knows how many mosquito fish- there seem to be hundreds even when I scoop a bunch out and trade them.

    I have my 2800 gal pond divided 60/40 with the fish getting the larger half, but they still benefit from the full 2800 gallon filtering capability. In there I have 18 goldfish, most about 4 inches, one large shubunkin at 6". Two painted turtles inhabit the smaller half, along with a flock (surprise!) of 3 baby goldies. Only been in the pond for less than 2 months but SOMEONE got frisky whilst I wasn't looking! So, 18.3 fish, officially. Or thereabouts. Approximately.
