Hey Everyone!
Okay here is my question.. I live in Calgary Alberta and sometime the weather is hot and sometimes it's cold. I was wondering if gold fish and koi could live in like a paddling pool?Treated like a fish tank and everything still.

Hi,
By paddling pool I assume you mean an inflatable one?
I don't think this will work because:
1.Way to shallow for the fish to swim and grow.
2.bacause it is a small body of water above ground it would experience temperature changes (quite drastic ones)
3.if the pond freezes during the winter there wouldnt be enough room for the fish to swim underneath the ice.
4.I don't know if you plan to filter it but I would imagine this could be difficult.
5.Koi need very big areas when they grow, I doubt a paddling pool would be big enough.
