      So I built a pond that holds about 1300 gallons of water. Its dimensions are 11 feet long by 8.5 feet wide and about 2 feet deep. I haven't been able to decide what I want to stock it with. I was wondering if anybody has any suggestions? I was thinking exotics but I want something that is going to be very active and that will be fun to feed. I live in central California near the coast. I have no problem heating the pond year round and keeping it at around 78 degrees farenheit. And I can build the pond bigger if it is necessary for the fish down the road. With that being said does anybody have any suggestions for fish I could Stock it with?

      Well that sucks, what about some larger catfish species maybe Oxydoras niger or a Auchenoglanis occidentalis? Maybe a species of shark catfish?

      if you feel like going for a 10,000 plus gallon pond you can go for a red tail catfish, with the pond you have right now a shovelnose of some sort could work.
