Ok so I have built a 155 gallon or 587 liters raised pond, this pond has an marginal plant shelf and and a lot of in water pond plants which are growing crazerly filling up almost all of the pond at least 75 %. I have stock this with 5 commet goldfish I was wondering if this if ok. Its really hard to get a good gaige on goldfish tank size and even though i think its fine im now have doubts.
By the way the pond is fully cycled and massivly over filtered.
thanks in advance

Hey there, to me it is the very most your pond can house. Think those fishes grow up to 12 inches long.....
If plants are this invasive I'd say 3 fishes.

yeah I am not going to stock anymore luckily for me some of the plants growing are edible and easy to prune so I often have heavy cut back to allow more swimming room and as the fish grow I will increase plant maintenance, at the moment I have let the plants grow large to prove the (currently) small goldfish some cover to increase there felling of safty.
thanks for the responce
