I know they can be indoor tanks. I seen some before I would say at least 90G or more IMO. My friend breeds them in a indoor tub. Or even 125G tank

I'm no expert on fw wish but I do know koi fish need huge tanks. That is why you see them in ponds. I would say nothing less than a 250 gallon tank. Check out liveaquaria.com for more info on them.
Ps I just checked and they recommend a minimum of a 1000gallon pond FYI.
