What kind of fish could live in a backyard pond?
I was thinking about making a pond in my backyard and I wasn't sure what type of fish could live in an outdoor pond. Anyone have any ideas?

    If the pond is sheltered from birds of prey, you can keep most coldwater fish like koi and goldfish. You should set the pond up, get it running and stable and test the temperature in the coolest parts of the day and night to get a good idea of what fish you can buy with that tolerance. Most goldfish and kois and some of the larger catfish can be kept outside in late spring and summer. You’ll have to make arrangements to bring them in for fall, winter and early spring if you don’t live in a place that stays fairly steady year round.
