    any other fish good for ponds beside goldfish, koi and mosquito fish?

    i just got a 300 gallon pond setup last night that the cleaning guy at work gave to me. and i have mosquito fish but i really don't like them that much, but they do a good job. so i'm looking for some other fish.

    the pet store said i could put danios in it but i'm not sure, since i believe they are tropical fish. but i don't know for sure.

    i'm willing to catch a few and put them inside so as not to worry about loosing a whole stock, (specially larger fish or more expensive ones they will go inside.) but i'm not gonna drain it to catch all of the fish. exp, the mosquito fish. a few die over winter is ok. more than a bucket of those isn't going in the house.

    300 gallon isn't very large. If your current fish have not yet grown, I would leave it as it is. With koi growing huge and goldfish up to one foot, it will be overcrowded before long.

    no gold fish yet or ever. just the two koi. (they haven't even gone in yet. going to wait still on that. need to cycle the pond. going to do it with the mosquito fish.) and tons of mosquito fish which i hope to give away a ton of as a food source for their pets. mostly i'm looking for something to replace them. something small that will eat all the nasty larves in the water, but prettier, or at least with a color beside grey brown.

    also i guess is a waterfall return on the filter plus a small fountain with a filter on it enough aireation? or should i also get a big air stone in it?

    I know people who put RTC and plecos in during the summer, but you'll have to take them in during the winter and then again 300 gallons wouldn't be enough to support an RTC with koi...rule that choice out.

    300 gallons is just about the amount of water 1 koi needs but that does not mean that if you have only 300 gallons that you can have a koi. Your pond is suitable for a few fancy goldys or a few comets.

    A red tailed catfish. Get about 4 ft long and would need a tropical temperature 1000 gal tank all to itself. About the koi,it has been recomended to you in the past that the koi need rehomed. I'm a bit confused why you have decided to keep them?
