Sorry about the delay. I kept missing the few PMs intending to respond long answers but work calls me out lately.

Anyway, if you wish to combine both koi and goldfish, then for goldfish, I would suggest sticking to singletails. No fancies. The info you provided in another thread regarding the climate really does not permit you to try fancy goldfish at all unless you plan to move them indoors every winter season. The depth is fine. 2 feet is bare minimum to ensure the fish will not freeze solid from the stiffly cold weather. You could provide heater as a precaution.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!

I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Okay great. I might just stick with Koi, because I read that the goldfish will breed a lot. Is that true? And we can definitely provide a heater.

Wait would there be any way to pick the sex of the goldfish? Or is that hard?
