Make sure your pond is large enough to house fish. It must be at least two feet deep for most fish or three or four feet deep for more koi. Visit a pet store or garden pond store and select the fish that are resistant to your area. Add fish only two or three at a time and choose fish that are approximately the same size so that they can live harmoniously together.

With the fish inside the store bag, place the entire bag inside the pond and let it float for 10 minutes so that the water inside the bag can gradually become the same temperature as the water in the pond.

Remove the bag and add 1/2 cup of pond water to the bag plus help adjust the temperature and help the fish to acclimate to the bacteria in the pond water. Reseal the bag and let it float for another ten minutes. Remove the fish from the bag with the net and release them gently into the pond.
