    If your pond is indeed 10x12x4 feet, then its volume is 3,600 gallons. And, it has a surface area of 120 square feet.
    The “rule of thumb” when stocking koi, is to allow 20-25 square feet of surface area per fish. (Or one square foot of surface area per inch of fish. Koi should grow to be at least 20″ though, so figure 25 square feet per fish, and you’ll be safe.)
    So, in that volume you could safely house about 5 full grown Koi.
