Stocking Question

    So I have a 15,000 or so gallon pool that I’m turning into a pond(hasn’t been used in years, there’s even a plant growing in it) well today I released 70 feeders into it to see if they’d survive/thrive. But if they do I was wondering how many more I could add as well as if I could add koi as well?

    I think 70 goldfish is fully stocked to be honest, If not, overstocked.

    I doubt that. Considering that would give every fish 200 or more gallons per fish, and that’s a ton.

    I would just let the feeders grow up and breed... They will stock the pond for you...

    Agreed. You don't want goldfish/koi crosses anyway.
