I have a 110 gallon stock tub I got from Tractor Supply, this will hold most goldfish pretty well and smaller koi too. It's about two foot deep so you could bury it and have a convenient pond below freeze level.

Rubbermaid/Sterilite bin if you're going for really cheap. Bigger versions are good for fancy goldfish or certain other types of fish.
Stock tub if you need space for a goldfish/multiple goldfish.
Koi need a huge pond, and you likely will not be able to find a container/tub for a fish of their size.

Whatever container you get, make sure it's a thicker plastic/heavy duty container otherwise you might find yourself with a crack in the container due to weak plastic.

YouTube is your friend for this question... I want a water garden/deck pond/ fountain and I have been learning much this way!

Depends on what you're doing and what's going into it.
I've been using one of these, It's about 15 gallons.


I managed to get lotus/lily seeds to sprout! almost time to put em outside.
