if you can regulate the flow in and out i think its great, a guy i knew had a freshwater spring on his property and ran the water into his basement and back out again. he kept a big holding tank down there he would put all the catfish he caught to eat in. the fish were from a pretty muddy river and he would leave them in the tank for a week and then eat them. the spring water got rid of any of the fishy taste.

oooo can't wait for the pictures
depending on how deep you have the pond,to if you can have koi carp or just
goldfish,
comets are nice,they grow 12-14 inches
shubunkins(sp) they're pretty.
Lupin would be handy to comment in this,as he holds a lot of information

Great pics! Good size too! I have a couple of questions tho? i.e. what temperature is it in the winter where you are in South Wales ? and how deep is your pond? What are you plans to winter over your fish? I do not have a pond nor any experience but I want one bad and I know we have to dig min 3 feet to winter fish over safely here in Ontario. I would rather you stop and dig deeper now if you need to than have fatalities this winter. So just do a little research if you have not already. But I'm insanely jealous!! I want a pond!!
