Not sure what water lettuce is, if he starts to stay at the top you could just run an airstone and do a water change i suppose, cant help you with that one, sorry.

To put it bluntly, your setup is not sufficient for what you have. Below is an example of how large a goldfish can get.


Also, goldfish are coldwater fish and Bettas are warmwater. They are from two completely different environments. It would be like putting a Polar Bear and a Panda Bear in the same enclosure at the zoo. It's just not a good idea.

im just keeping the baby in there so hes safe cuz im not sure how he will be in my pond .. once he gets bigger im going to move him back
He doesn't intend for this to be the Koi's permanent home. Yes they get big, but he said the koi is only 3/4 of an inch now and will go to the pond when it gets big enough.

They do have different water temperature needs though. I'd move the betta out. Is there anyway you could get a little 2.5g tank for the betta? They should sell them at most pet/fish stores. That would be a more appropriate home for the betta. I don't like keeping them in tanks under that.

You also may need to get a bigger tank or container for the koi. I'd pick up a 10g if you can and get a filter. They do produce alot of waste, so a tank with a filter would be better. Then when it gets big enough to go to the pond, you can use the 10g for future baby koi or something else.
