Cement pond algae eater

DoubleDee

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.

How big is the pond?

Is it in direct sunlight?

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

Is a Chinese hi fin shark a good choice to help with algae in a cement pond?

It’s

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.
