And I also read up a bit on koi ponds on the web but nikelodeon79 said they would get too big for indoor ponds... But couldn't my "tank" house atleast 3 or 4 of them?

Actually, I believe the general stocking guideline for koi is around 2,000 gallons per fish. Wink

I've completely edited my opening post... Think I've added a lot more detail and the whole thing is much clearer and organized now....

You should try reading it again....

Hi Cesare..

Thats much clearer Wink

Now I don't want to say to much, I'd rather leave it to those that know more.

But I do think the river rock idea is a good 1.
And I had a feeling koi would be to big, hehe .

Keep the patients, I'm sure some1 will be along soon to give you the right advice. Just as a note of interest, over the last 4months or so I've have a fish tank, I've continually moved plants/rocks about my tanks always getting it better and better. Now I can say moving decor about WITH fish can end up being a lot more effort. So again, with time and an empty tank you can play about with it until you are happy, much easier to do.

Best of luck
Jisty Morelove

If you can tell me how warm the water is and how many gallons it is, I could guide you to the perfect fish. A picture might help, too.
