      Better view of my happy fish. With these new filters they are swimming 4ft deep in the video and it looks like they are at the top.

      Just installed my bakki in a temporary spot till I core drill my wall fountain scuppers in and then relocate the bakki to behind the wall (Even though it's so beautifully made )

      Smile

      Finally got around to taking a quick video of the Koi in the pond. The waste at the bottom seems to be getting picked up pretty well by the bottom pump. Well see how well it fairs over the next few years without the bottom drain. I've been doing 15% water changes every Saturday. Just did one this am. Fish are in good health and water quality is great. PH is 7.0 and ammonia / nitrates and nitrites are all 0 rpm. So I'm a happy camper.

      Thanks Tony. In the high 60's. I turned off the airator and bakki for the video. They get spooked when I do that.

      A little over a year later and the fish and pond are doing well. Thinking I may do a gctek bead filter system this year and eventually a bottom drain with cement bottom and liquid liner. Anyone ever deal with liquid liner?
