Can you give me any hints or suggestions or have pictures?

He puts Koi in the ones he does . Do you have any Garden supply stores that sell them in your area. They probably can give you all the info you need
They are really cool fish they even come eat out of your hand

Do you have any measurements of the size or anything approximate? If I can figure out how many gallons it'll be I can recommend an ideal number of fish, and the best number to start with.
I moderate a section on a fish forum so I thought I'd just jump in and ask you a zillion questions
a-bull : I think your only concern would be a pond shallow enough that the racoon can reach the bottum. My folk's last house has a pond that is 16 x 8 by 4 ft deep and although we have plenty of racoons in the area the only issue we ever had were Herrons, and even then we had so many fish that they didn't really make a dent.
