    11 metric ton pond with almost 50 koi.

    Absolutely too crowded.

    They are awaiting new home, a 36 metric ton pond.

    I got an idea, can we have a standard for measurements? I mean for koi-.bito.com so we meaning I can understand quicker. I don't know how many tons makes 1 gallon so I would have to search it. This is off the topic but I am getting a lot of translation errors when researching. For example: 1 website would say 1 pound per 1000 gallon of water. Then another would say 1 pound per 1000 litters of water. They were refering to the same pond style and it took me 1 year to run into the one that said 1 pound per 1000 litters.

    And that is a lot of koi's, are you a breeder, wholesaler or what? Or do you just like having a lot of big kois.

    1000 litres per tonne. So it's 11,000 litres of water which works out to 2900 gallons.

    Being the web site is based out of Japan where all is metric and seeing as how the original poster is in Thailand which is also on the metric system....

    Wow, that is 220 liters per fish, which is about 55 gallons per fish. Metric is the way to go anyway, as this english system is not good. I mean how many people here knows how many table spoon per gallon. What is your pond system like? And 36 ton is still very little for 50 fish. But wow, you did great
