new pond advice please!

Subject: new pond advice please!

From advice I got on here I'm transferring my large indoor goldfish into an outdoor pond.

Do I need to treat the water as I would an indoor tank, ie chlorine balance etc.

Its just a 175gal pond for 3 fish. Do I need a filter?

Does the water need to sit in the pond a certain time before I can introduce the fish?

And can anyone give me any advice on maintaining the pond? Water changes etc?

What plants are best and does it need gravel at the bottom?

Any info / advice would be great - Im a beginner, if you couldnt already tell!
