Each of these questions has a common theme: the possibilities and problems of raising koi in an indoor aquarium-type environment. As you might guess, success in raising koi in aquariums, over-wintering pond fish in indoor holding tanks or operating a small indoor pond depends primarily on keeping the fish load low enough and on maintaining suitable water quality conditions. Jun 23, 2014 - Koi are a particularly hardy fish and can adapt to living in many environments including tanks, aquariums and indoor ponds

Obtain an aquarium that is large enough to contain the number of koi you have. Koi need a large volume tank to thrive. Your tank should have 1 cubic foot per 1 inch of koi fish length. Multiple the tank's height by width by length to determine the tank's cubic footage.This is Part One on information on trying to keep koi in fish tanks. Here we discuss the obstacles and issue of measuring size of koi among other things in keeping them in tanks as compared to keeping them in ponds.Some fish are capable of withstanding a wide range of temperatures and are usually hardy in just about any region when kept indoors without an aquarium heater. Some, such as the common goldfish, can even be kept outdoors in temperate climates. Non-tropical fish include the clown loach, pufferfish, goldfish, koi and common guppy. The fancier guppies do better in temperate zones when kept in heated tanks, as they are more fragile than the ordinary feeder guppy.A Michelin inspector was the first to notice the less-than-ideal conditions a few months back, that "If you have display tanks to show how fresh your seafood is (Koi Palace), not good to have several dead, belly-up fish clouding up the water." Now Bauer is also so concerned about the tanks' cleanliness (and that of the restaurant) that , despite still enjoying their food. "The fish tanks that line two walls in the entrance weren't a quick sell for fresh seafood, even though we had a steamed rock cod and it tasted fresh. The water in the tanks was murky and gray and some of the fish were lethargic and looked like they were about to expire." A have noticed dead fish in the tanks as well over the past four months. An aquatic intervention seems to be in order at Koi Palace, which has been offending diners by apparently neglecting to care for its fish tanks, which have had multiple reports of dirty interiors and dead fish floating inside, including some from important critics (more on that below). Considering the Chinese restaurant, long considered one of the Bay Area's best, specializes in live seafood (and that the aforementioned tanks are located right in the front reception area, where diners almost always have to wait for a table), this isn't exactly heartening news. I have seen many articles about raising koi in ponds, but I have never seen anything about raising them in ordinary fish tanks. I have six koi, each several inches long, and they currently reside in a 125-gallon tank. The tank has an external canister filter and an undergravel filter. How long is it safe to keep koi under these conditions? Would it be possible to keep them outdoors in a pond but bring them indoors and keep them in the aquarium tank for viewing for several months?
