    What else is in the pond at the moment? If there isn't anything, maybe just drop a few bits of food in there to keep it all sustained, then do a small WC when the new fish arrive.

    Leaving the tank unstocked for a week shouldn't impact the pond in any way.
    As suggested, you could add some food to the tank, although that will take a few days to break down.
