Helpful Calculations

The following is used to figure gallons, 7.5= gallons in a cu. ft. of water and the formula is:

Average Length x average Width x average Depth x 7.5 = gallons of water. Example: 10’x 10’x 2’ x 7.5 = 1500 gallons

How Many Fish?

The following formula is used to figure out how many fish your pond can handle. (Bio-load)

Figure the ponds surface area square footage, Length X Width, then multiply by 1”  This is the total inches of fish the pond may support. The common rule is 1” of Goldfish or ½” of Koi per square foot of the ponds surface area. It is always best to under stock, your pond and fish will be much happier. Example: A 10’x10’ pond = 100sq. ft. of surface area. 100 x 1” = 100” of fish or 20 5” goldfish, or 10 5" Koi
