Ive just set up a large pond and I need to know what other fish there are other than goldfish and koi. Any ideas anyone?
It would be nice to see a variation for once rather than gold or white.

You could put in a pleco in the warm months and then move it into an indoor aquarium in the cold months. That may be too much trouble though.

I had a black moor who used to go outside in the warm months with the goldfish - he always grew so much over the summer!Have a look at to get an idea of what there is available.
Enjoy!

Thanks for helping. So in other words there isnt really that much variation! I was considering puting gouramis in in the summer but its too much hassle

I think it may still be a bit too cold for gouramis cos they're tropical whereas a moor is coldwater anyway. Dont want to freeze the little fishies!
Have a look at your local garden centres for more ideas - I know what you mean about it all being red/white/gold though!
One garden centre had a white pond liner with black moors in it which looked groovy but heavy maintenance to keep the liner white!

You can also put White Clouds in your pond, but like the plecos you have to bring them indoors in the summer.
