    My 16,000 gallon female pond was filtered with 6 S/G filters. BUT also four sieves, one 4 foot set of feather rock showers, and two 55 watt UV's.

    I would reccomend the EVO 55 UV. It's a bit over kill for your pond but priced very reasonably. It will handle the flow of your pump, and replacement bulbs are only 40 bucks a pop.
