What type of goldfish for 100 gals?/

Sokamix

Hey guys I live in an apartment and I have a somewhat small porch. I want a pond, so 100 gallons is really the biggest I can get. What type of goldfish can I put in there? I could buy a heater and put fancy goldfish in there but that’s my last resort if there isn’t any different types I can get. Thanks.
Here is a pic of what I’ll be using for the pond. Also if anyone has any pond plant recommendations I would appreciate it

In 100gal fancy goldfish is ideal you could have around 5-6 health goldfish. If you wanted shubinkins or comets it would be 3-4 max but that is pushing it as they get a bit bigger, faster swimmers and overall require more space.

I strongly reccomend fancy goldfish rather than single tail goldfish.

Edit: Pond plants ive had great success with is the iris.

Best of luck :)

Just in case you haven't thought of this, and if this isn't a ground-floor apartment, note that a 100 gallon pond would be 800+ pounds--make sure the porch can support this!

I have comet goldfish in my 150g Rubbermaid Stock Tank. black taro in a strainer type basket with styrofoam zip tied to make it float. no heater. it got almost completely frozen over with about 2 inches of ice.

my 110g stock tank with pink, white and yellow native lily. i have about a dozen rosy red minnows, no filtration.
