Why do you ask, do you have water problems? Have you tested it? It looks like your not over stocked and should be ok.

2000gph seems way to much flow for that size of filter. do yourself a favor, go to the DIY section and build one the upflow filters that are "STICKY"ed, just down size to a smaller version if your worried about estetics. a 55 gallon setup would keep your water crystal clear..and water parameters ideal.

The filter is a model 2000 (liters) actually 1600L/352 GPH just about right for a lightly loaded pond of 700-800 gallons...I'm guessing the pump is 2300 liters per hour?

What???? Also, dog as in dog?

It's really hard to say, due to all the different parameters that are important for healthy fish... If you stay with goldfish I'm sure you can add 1/2 again to what you have, but if you start adding Koi your looking for trouble as they'll grow quick, destroy plants, etc.

Maybe think about adding a prefilter or a sediment chamber to your filter and a bio filter for this year. Purchase a water test kit to keep tabs on water condition.

good luck
