Cement pond algae eater

Can Chinese algae eaters fare well in a small outdoor cement pond in South Carolina? If not any recommendations? I have one koi and 4 goldfish in it. I m guessing a few frogs may be in there too!

What is the best algae eater to get for a cement pond that has a koi and 3 goldfish in? I live in SC so I need one that will survive the heat here as well as get along with what’s in there.

I’m not really sure cuz it was here already when I moved here. I’m gonna get a tape measure for accuracy

Yes and I also put an umbrella over part of it in case they want some shade

In that case, I would suggest adding floating plants to combat the algae

a cement pond
How many gallons is it? We can’t really answer anything without knowing the size of the pond.

If the goldfish can handle the heat, I don't see why any tropical fish couldn't.
