What is the guide lines for the amount of fish you should safely have in a pond? Does it depend on size of the filters or the size of the fish you have in the pond??
now me,,, i've kept 230 koi in 800 gallons of water...no issues. i keep 150+ in that pond 6 months a year atleast every year. October til May. now i am definately not recommending it. good filtration and regular sceduled maintainence wether you think its necessary or not.

Is that a typo? Or maybe they are very young? My new pond is 850g and I don't think i'd go over 20-25 goldfish. I couldn't imagine 50 fish in there let alone 230.
It totally depends on the filters. But a pond itself is a filter. Algae is a great filter. Streams and waterfalls are filters. Water changes are a filter.What is the guide lines for the amount of fish you should safely have in a pond? Does it depend on size of the filters or the size of the fish you have in the pond??
