      I now own a 700 gallon poly stock tank. it is 8ftx2ft, I am looking for ideas to stock it in my backyard. I live in east tennessee. I am thinking about channel catfish, flathead catfish, koi, or any native /temperate/cold water fish that will work. I am just researching fish before I commit to stocking it.

      a 3 foot long fish in a 2 foot wide tank isn't the best of ideas.

      In short words, you can't keep anything over 2 feet long. Goldfish would be your best bet if you like the view of fish in the pond. Red Rosies, golden orfe, bullheads, golden dojo loachs and few sunfish would be good pondmates for goldfish.
