That's a myth that circulates on a regular basis - I think it's a carryover from aquarium thinking that does not apply to pond fish. Body mass is a critical factor - 28 inches of koi produce way more waste than 28 inches of goldfish, for example. And even if the "formula" was correct, those seven 4 inch koi you currently have won't be 4 inches long forever - how will the math work when you have seven 25 or 30 inch koi in a 1000 gallon pond?I was told rightly or wrongly that I could have 100 inches of fish in 1000 gallon pond
Sorry you felt I was giving you a hard time - definitely not my intention. I was actually addressing the advice you were given about inches of fish per gallon of water in a pond. It seems it's often overlooked that a 4 inch koi can be a 14 inch koi in a year's time. Just general commentary - nothing personal.Lisak1 I wasn't looking to be given a hard time for having a over stocked pond in 5 years time
