    I think the principle of "less is more" can be applied here? I would find it difficult to enjoy the individual fish with so many blocking the view. You are doing something right to have so many in such a small space and all appear healthy. Still, Nature will reduce the population in time unless you make your choices soon.

    Like Mike I was amazed at how many fish you have. I thought my pond was crowded!
    I'm not sure I could appreciate fish in those numbers. I'd personally prefer to see 12 fish rather than 100 in that pond.
    Still congratulations to you for keeping them healthy.
    Have they grown to that size in that pond?

    Totally Totally Agree!!!

    I am planning to do something about it.
