Size and location of Pond:
Koi fish need a larger pond. The smallest koi pond should be constructed at least 2-feet deep, 4-feet long and 5-feet wide.
If larger the better, but preferably should not be larger than 21 ft. in length, 17 ft. in width and 6 ft. in depth. You may not be happy see a few koi fish roaming around, and you may want to include a few more, so a larger pond is better.

Location of Pond:
