You would need a bare minimum of 1000 gallons for them, and koi and goldfish live 25 years or longer. A lot of people think they only live a year or two, then die of "old age". And it's not true that fish will only grow as large as their tank/pond, their spines will bend and their intestines keep growing until they die. I say that so you won't set yourself up for any disappointment in the future if your pond is too small, it's always upsetting when fish die, as you know. Anyway, hopefully you will find some babies, I bet they are hiding.
I wasn't offended, and I'm going to keep checking for the babies. Thanks.
