How many fish can I place in my pond?

It’s always a good idea to start small and add fish gradually. Here is a rule of thumb to use as a guideline to avoid overstocking and ensure the overall health of your fish:

• For small fish like goldfish and comets, 1 in. of fish for every 3 gallons of water.

• For Koi fish, 1 in. of fish for every 5 gallons of water. Koi fish have a faster growth rate, so you may have to remove a few of them at a certain point.
