    For anyone to be able to answer that question we'd need to know the intricate details of your filtration design, turnover rates, feeding regime, seasonal temperatures, etc... All of that is every bit as vital as raw pond dimensions.

    Another consideration for honest consideration is how many are likely to truly be held from juvenile (1-2 yrs old) all the way through maturity (30"+). The chances of a group of 30 or 40 tosai/nissai being good enough to keep all of them to that age are virtually nil, so a realistic number of population reduction along the way is to be expected.

    Sounds more like a commercial setup than a personal pond. At that pond size, you will have difficulty catching or treating your koi if the need should arise. What are your goals for the koi is this pond?
