    I would guess your pond volume to be just under 3000 gallons depending on whether your walls are sloped, or your corners are rounded and the depth of your shelfs. You need a pump that moves a minimum of 1500 gallons per hour.

      The pond is about 3000 gallons. I don't know the gallonage is for the pump running in it, but it seems to be doing the job. They have been in there and doing fine for years, till this spring. After that bout of whatever it was they are doing great now. There are about a half million babies to prove it! I did several water changes and salted them down and after the water change they perked back up. Thanks for your help, Les
