Can I safely add 5-6 shabunkins?
I will have my new pond in the next month or so. It will be small, only 300 gallons. I will have a good filter and a good pump as well. I want to make sure I don't overpopulate my pond. Can I safely add 5 shabunkins to this pond? Will they have enough room when they are mature? Also, can I add fish in the winter (I live in the Dallas, Tx area) or should I wait until spring. Lastly, is it ok to buy the fish from a pet store or should a spend a few extra dollars and buy them from a pond supply store? Thanks for your help!
