As some of you know I have a pond with 1 large koi 3 Redfin 3 goldfish and a black bream. I had noticed that they were schooling together for the last couple day and I was in shock. All those different species schooling together. What other fish could I put in there that I can catch from the swan? And does anyone else have odd fish schooling together (just curious)

Yellowtail trumpeter would be worth a shot. If you catch an extra one for me, I'll buy it off you.
I once had a murray cod that befriended a bigger yoyo loach.

Not wishing to be negative, but? are they schooling together or all together at the surface gasping? I have just returned from a week in Meekathara and Mt Magnet and XXXXXXX its hotter here.Higher temp can lead to lower oxygen levels and uncomfortable temps for some fish. I have checked all mine since i got back, most good but have lost a pond[very exposed and not in peak condition] of barbs and shrimp.Keep an eye on what you introduce with the redfin they are greedy big mouthed fish.

Yeh i wanted to put a trumpeter in because I caught a few but the internet said it was fresh and others said it can live in both so I did not risk it

Definetely fine in fresh,,, and as you want, they are quite communial, they can be seen hanging out with all sorts of fish, possibly to scavenge though.
You'll see in the Moore and the Muchison where it's totally fresh, beneath the natural window lookout area.
