just a quick newbie question about goldfish
I'm sure you have all answered this a thousand times already and I have in fact looked at other posts but I havent really found the answer I was looking for so here it goes.....
What is the general rule regarding stocking goldfish in a pond? How many per gallon is recommended when taking into consideration that they will breed in the future?
I am planning a 1000 or so gallon backyard pond. It will be 7x4x5 or 6ft deep half above half underground encased in brick with a waterfall coming out of a brick wall. Naturally I will have filtration in fact I'm opting for a larger filtration system to cycle my water twice an hour.
So whats the verdict Pond Gurus :)
I was thinking I could get away with 4 and they would be happy and not feel cramped.
