Hi Nick

Welcome to the forum.

It looks fine to me, however, I am not familiar with that biofilter and have not seen one in SA.

The manufacturer says it is good for 80 000 liters, so give it a go and give us an update.

Your turnover could be a bit higher. With a 10 000 liter pump, you will end up with about 7 000 after all the restrictions, and ideally you should turn your pond around every hour.
