I am thinking about using RidX in my Koi pond instead of regular pond bacteria. Will it work? Will it harm my Koi? Thanks for the feedback.

What you have is a waste water treatment system. I know its a pond but, the fish use it for a toilet. you have to treat the water to remove the ammonia and other pollutants in the water.
RidX is for septic tanks, septic means its septic IE anaerobic no or little oxygen in the water. You need a bacteria culture that is faculatative, meaning it works with and with out oxygen in the water. There will probably be 2 zones in your pond. One will have large amounts of oxygen and others with less. The faculatative bacteria will work well in both zones as well as in the filter media if you have one.

I don’t think that’s a good idea. Let the pond sit with water and filter running for about a month, it should cycle on its own. Then get fish slowly one or two at a time. Quarintine if you are able.
