I have a pond that is somewhere between 1000-1200 galllons. Inside I have 3 comets about 8 inches each and 3 shebunkin's about 5 inches in size each. Do I have enough room to add 2 koi if not do i have enough room to add any fish? It seems like there is plenty of room. The pond is about 11 feet long by 8 or 9 feet wide and varies in depth. The deepest part is about 3 feet.
Will Koi grow to their full size in a pond this size? People say that Koi will "grow to the size of the pond", but how is that different from goldfish whose growth is stunted by the size of the bowl? Seems to me that if an animal's growth is limited by the size of its quarters at any stage of its life, it needs more room.
