A word of warning about sticklebacks, especially those taken from the wild, they can be disease carriers. They can also carry an intestinal worm that causes them to swim on the surface to attract fish eating bird, the worm completes the next stage of its life cycle in the bird.
Personally I wouldn't put stickle backs in a pond with ornamental fish but I think they are great in a wild life pond
