    no chance of keeping them where they are until the new pond turns up?

    or as samp says, a framed swimming pool...
    how about a 3mtr diameter 1,200 gallon on amazon...

    sorry but did I read correctly................."900 Gallon pond to come"

    If that`s correct, that is a tiny pond for Koi.

    Iím guessing itís one of those fibreglass freestanding ones,Not sure wether the op is intending to use as a permanent pond or not? They are quite popular and I know a couple of people who have them as permanent ponds with a cladded outer they can look really good,they are not a bad size at all in person,the ones I know of have some pretty big ish fish in them and are nicely run with an easypod plus bio chamber and sieve so make the hobby very accessible & affordable,not everyone has a huge space for a pond or can or even wants to spend a fortune on a pond
