I have read existing commentary on this topic. Does anyone have a recommendation about what kind of temp. pond to buy? We think we need two or three days to rebuild the old pond. We need about 1,000 gallons. Will the pumps that come with these above ground ponds for humans be adequate for my koi? I have about 12 and some are at least a foot. My current filter seems to have died. I am worried about raccoons attacking the soft sides of an above the ground pond. I had planned to put netting on top to keep other creatures like herons out. This works on my real, in ground pond. We plan to use our current pond water. Any warnings or suggestions for how to protect my fish? I am really worried about putting my koi in one of these above ground thingies, even temporarily.
