newbie needs help with small pond

hi
i built a small raised pond last summer, 7ft x 4ft but its only 26 inch deep. i know its small but i don`t have a lot of space.
i put 5 2" ghost koi and a small 5" gold coloured koi. will these be happy enough in this pond? what else can i put in it? will Comets and Shubunkins be okay?
will koi survive in it?
thanks for helping

Its too small for the Koi, will be soon anyway. They get big and container size does not limit their growth like it does with some fish. Shubunkin and/or comets are much better choices.

I would say 6 or 8 shubunkin or comet should populate it nicely.
