Q. Can I raise Koi in an indoor 125 gallon tank?

Q. What are the possibilities for building a small indoor ponds in my apartment to raise Koi or goldfish?


It is essential to realize that as the Koi grow, you will have to remove fish from the tank to maintain the proper load balance.

For example, you might have 36 4-inch Koi in a 100-gallon tank today, but if they are cared for properly, they will each reach 6 inches within 18 to 24 months. At that point, however, the tank is four-times overloaded!

  Many hobbyist keep Koi in standard large 125 gallon aquariums tanks or in an indoor 300 gallon pond with no problems as long as it is not over stock with fishes.

Most common Koi's fish health and aquarium or pond maintenance problems can be traced to the unfortunate habit of keeping too many fish in too little water.

A rule of thumb for determining the maximum Koi fish load for a given volume of water 100 gallon (aquarium or pond).

Koi Length 6 (inches) No. of Koi Fish 11
Koi Length 8 (inches) No. of Koi Fish 4
Koi Length 12 (inches) No. of Koi Fish 1

Another rule of thumb for determining the maximum Koi fish load for a given volume of water is; one sq inch of fish per five gallon of water with adequate aeration and mechanical, chemical and biological filtration.

If you adhere to the fish load recommendations, keeping Koi in standard aquariums is no different than keeping tropical fish or goldfish.

Good aeration using a high-capacity pump is crucial in indoor tanks and ponds because of the relatively poor air movement in closed spaces. The tank should always have a dissolved oxygen level of 7 parts per million or more.

The filter requirements for a well-managed fresh water setup are fairly simple. A good external power filter is very important. Efficient mechanical filtration is an absolute necessity.


Koi, in particular, produce a lot of solid waste (because they eat so much), and because they also tend to nose around the tank bottom, failure to install an external mechanical filter will doom you to a permanently cloudy tank.

Use good-quality granular activated carbon in the filter to remove dissolved organic substances from the water, it is an essential element in maintaining stable water conditions with indoors tank or pond.

Complete nutrition for your fish. Aquarian Betta Food are packed with essential vitamins, as well as calcium, manganese, and iron. It provides your special fish with plenty of energy and a tough immune system with tasty spirulina and shrimp
Be aware that Koi are jumpers. You must keep some kind of netting over the tank top or you will find dead fish lying around the living room floor.

Designing, building and operating an indoor pond is a simple project.

An indoor pond can be designed to fit into almost any space in an apartment or house. Specialize in the design and installation of all types of water features including water gardens, Koi ponds, fountains, streams, waterfalls and swimming pool landscapes.

Biological filtration is absolutely necessary.
An under-gravel filter can handle the job without difficulty, but it should be
cleaned weekly with a gravel "vacuum."

Alternatively, you might consider setting up an external biological filter using a separate, smaller fish tank to hold the biological media.

Using good-quality water proofing building materials you can have an indoor pond of a thousand gallons for less than US$200.

An excellent filtration system for an indoor pond can be made out from standard materials found in any hardware store. Click here for more Aquatic & Aquarium Tips
