Hey fischerchem

Looks good!

Question, where did you get that tray from and what media is that in there?

the media is far infrared bacteria house

The bakki shower is from China, if you are interesting in it, Very Happy let me know, we could supply 7 sizes.

Hey Guys,

Ok so this is DEFINITELY the route I will be adopting in my new pond, rather than the conventional submerged type filter.

One question though, if my pond size is going to be about 35 000 liters, how many crates would I need to sustain the pond?

I was thinking about getting 2 towers of 5 crates each. (Bottom crate empty to allow water to drain back tot he pond, but the 4 above it will be fulled with bio balls.)

Now looking at some pics, it seems that this may be a tad overkill. I see most people only have 1 tower of about 4 - 5 crates for quite large ponds...

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Lee

Hi Lee,

I built a catchment area and suspended the bakkis above this. I think you would do very well with 2x 4tier (i have a 2x 2tier, and have not used my UV lights since. my pond is half the size of yours and overstocked). I have room for another tier, but the company that I bought the crates from are out of stock for now. I not a big fan of bio-balls, I prefer pumice and lava rock coz IMHO they are more porous and the bacteria seem to strive better in them). go to the market and get your hands on lots of veggie bags. make "pods" by filling veggie bags with other veggie bags - don't stuff them as you will need water to flow through them. I would suggest only these pods in the 1st tier if the bakki to trap bigger particles. in the second put 1 third pumice and pods on top of these and the remainder of the tiers fill them with 50% of pumice - this way you would only have to rinse the pods out and not the pumice. Pumice you can source from MUTIMEX in pinetown, they usually have a 25kg bag of 3-5cm stones for R255 ex vat.

all the best
V
