in the near future i will be constructing a semi large pond. i will have adequate filtration and heating to keep it optimum for most tropical fish. the only thing is i am attempting to construct a self-sustaining ecosystem in it with some small inverts to eat plants (plants already picked out) and also some small fish to feed on those, with 2 mid size fish following them, and a larger species of which i will have a male and a female on the top such as a silver arowana or a short nose gar.

does anyone have some suggestions?

I reckon you're at least one and probably two trophic levels too ambitious there. Can't begin to imagine the area of water required to produce enough food an arowana.

Inverts + one or two types of small micropredatory fish should be easy though.
