We have a koi in a 50 gallon aquarium w/ about 6 other goldfish- the koi is doing absolutely fine.

How about 1000gal? Do not get them -- they produce lots of waste and grow HUGE!

I have a comet pond in mty backyard & was told by the pond company building it that in order for it to be able to hold koi comfortably that it had to be at least 18" of water. I am sure you can find all kinds of detailed information on keeping koi in an aquarium through Google. Good luck!!

for Koi and other carp, I generally recommend at least five to ten gallons of water volume per inch of fish, bare minimum, and multi-stage external canister filters (such as those by Fluval) rated for more than the capacity of the aquarium.
