    It should be fine, but this largely depends on the aggression of the aro; koi literally have 0 defense, and especially against one of the most streamlined predators in the world, they'll be outmatched.

    Go ahead and try it out, but keep a very close eye on the koi as well as their numbers for at least a month. This gives the aro enough time time to get comfortable and really decide if he wants to do any funny business or not. And have a backup plan if it does not work out.

    t
    he is currently in a 390g. Thats my back up plan. He is basically a big flowerhorn so he is quite angry all the time

    Tbh, you are taking a risk if he's very angry/aggressive; especially if your pond is expensive. Although, he *could* change his behavior in a bigger environment. It's good you do have a back up (although, I'd imagine you'd have a really "fun" time trying to fish him back out of it doesn't work out lol)

    Oh no! I'm so sorry! Poor koi :(. If there's any silver lining, at least you didn't release him in the entire pond. Back to timeout he goes I suppose
