    I'd say depth is good, length is good, but I'd go wider with it to get you to the 1500 gallons. My pond is about 4 foot wide at its widest, and I'm constantly wishing it was wider so the fish would...

    With 1000 gallons you are very limited. I wouldn't do more than a few Koi. If you're adding more fish than that you could add some goldfish, but I still would take it easy on how many you add.
