I have kept koi for many years, so not a complete beginner regarding water keeping etc. Thanking you!
For that tank, my first choice would be the Double Cone 180 if the skimmer compartment has enough space. Second choice would be the mini 180 which has a smaller footprint. For the double cone 180, you would need at least 11.5 ʺ x 14.5" in the skimmer compartment. The Mini 180 would need around 10.5" x 11.5" of space in the skimmer compartment. Maintenance on the Double Cone will be much easier since the pump is outside the body and it will perform a bit better under varying loads since the RD3 allows fine tuning via the speed control on the RD3.
