Hi and welcome! Ditto the other replies. I have a 2500 gallon pond and 10 years experience and just recently took the plunge with two small Koi. Having a pond is no fun when the fish waste causes disease and death to your fish because it's not properly balanced with regards to the nitrogen cycle. I would start with some goldfish and see how that goes first. Sarasa comets and Shubunkins can come in beautiful colors and be very fun to own.Plan on a Koi pond, How should Plumbing chain go? underwater pump to filter then waterfalls? or draw water through filter, placing pump after filter, then to falls? Also how deep? For Central New Jersey
If you make a water fall and stream don't worry about the aeration so much I spent some coin on the air bladder and 120 air pump and never use it . And I have never seen a fish at the surface gasping for air.Koi need lots of aeration also .So consider an air pump as they get bigger it will help
