    How many 4" - 6" Koi can I keep in a 50 gallon tote inside my home for winter. I can use one of those small pumps that fits inside a filter for small garden pounds.

    How many do you have? The aquarium people would say that is big enough for 3 goldfish. You can handle more fish in a small space with super filtration and plenty of water changes. Can you get a 100 gallon stock tank?

    That is a negative on that100 gallon stock tank. I have a couple of 50 gallon totes and one filter they sell for 250-300 gallon small ponds
