TY KoKo, total of 50,000 gallons, 6,000 on top for plants and free water and 44,000 on bottom. I try to keep the herd to 35. I love being able to sit and follow one fish around the whole pond. In the winter I lower the lever of the top pond about a foot. Then it becomes their winter home, 1/2 of the filtration gets shut down and the other half runs inside the white shed all winter. I don't own any real show quality koi, just a bunch of lovable mutts.
