If you are asking about how much water to move through the pump? Basically the volume in the pool once per hour

though in larger ponds/fish tanks this can be relaxed a bit.
so 1000-2000 Gallons/Hr

so every 2-3 hours would be fine as long as oxygen & circulation is being dealt with.
Plus he says carp so they are hardier than trout for example.

This is how many times the full volume of the pond is rotated. Darren is correct Carp are pretty forgiving fish to water quality.

>> What every 3 hours one hour wok or

you have to match your pump to the volume and it depends on how your system is set up...
(and any applicable flow loss due to lift head)

eg. if you have a 4000 GPH pump then you will get turnover of a 4000 Gallon tank in an hour, so you could probably run it for 1 hour on, one hour off quite easily. Or perhaps run it for a few hours 4 times a day.

If you had a 2000 GPH pump you probably need to run it for at least 2-3 hours once per day and for a couple of hours a few times a day.

If you have too many fish then you have to run it a lot more.
If you stock at a low-medium level you could run it a bit less....
