Turn the jacuzzi into a small pool, and the pool, into a large pond!Money can't buy happiness, but it sure can pay the rent.

The pool is lower than the jacuzzi, so no water contamination can occur. Completely two different systems.
Think feeder goldfish will be alright to cycle this thing???75 gallon planted tank with discus, GBR's and cardinals

I woudl expect. Are you planning to keep them? If not then I'd encourage a fishless cycle.

You can probably just start with a few small goldfish you plan on keeping. Any idea of how many gallons that thing holds?Aquarist since 1995

Comets will coexist just fine with koi...if you do decide to cyle with comets, just plan to include them in your stocking...no need to ever get rid of them...
You could also go with just comets...they come in different colours as well...they're beautiful fish in their own right...
But for some reason we've gotten into the habit of thinking of them as 'disposable'...
They are excellent, hardy, pond fish...55 g Goldfish Tank - 5 Fancies, 2 Dojos
25 g Tropical Tank - Celestial Pearl Danio/Mixed

Regarding the stocking question, I'm not sure where you'd find Koi. As far as my own store, I haven't found any suppliers other than for show-quality fish, and those usually retail no less than $3000 (in most cases up to $15000). I'm still looking for a much cheaper breeder so I can perhaps bring a few in.
On the other hand, there are any number of other goldfish that you could try: Orandas, Moors, Ranchu, Pearlscales, Shubunkins, Lionheads... These ones usually retail between $7-30 around here depending on the size. The only thing I've heard is that round-bodied golds shouldn't be mixed with flat-bodied, and I forgot to ask why that is.
Or you could see if a store will order you 5000 Danios.
