(1/2) > >>

yorkiejeff:
couple of questions. if i fairly heavily plant the pond( roughly 1250-1500 litres) how many goldies can i put in before i need a flter? i wass thinking maybe half a dozen. also without a filter how do i keep the water clear? i have heard straw but how do i have it in the pond? in a bundle?

_pjn312_:
Do you have a powerhead in there? It'd be good as I'm sure the goldfish won't mind some flow and it would improve circulation, which would also add a bit to filtration. Goldfish produce a lot of waste though, so you could probably only have a few before adding a proper filter.

yorkiejeff:
got a filter ready to go in, but i need a motor for the belt cleaner thing. lol wa only asking so i can put the oldies in while the filter sorts itself and cycles

plankton:
You won't be moving them from inside to out until Spring will you?

yorkiejeff:
no, its too cold at the moment. thinking of moving them around april time.
