    Oase Filtomatic.....Any good?

    I presume it just pumps it out via a valve in the sponge filter box? The videos on YouTube look good but they always do don't they? I currently also have a pressurised filter but I'm having to flush it every day.

    Oase Filtomatic.....Any good?

    Hi there. I'm thinking of buying an Oase Filtomatic filter mainly because it has an automatic sludge pump built into it, so when there is a build up of gunk, it will pump it out rather than me having to compress the filter sponges regularly. This is mainly because the filter has to be in a...

    Running two filters?

    Thank you very much to you all for your replies. Great to have such knowledgeable folk on here to answer questions. I'll spend the weekend having a look at filtration methods and maybe give building one a go? As a separate question, how often should I operate the self clean function on my...

    Running two filters?

    Hi there. We currently have a pressurised filter with UV but it doesn't seem to be big enough to stop the pond water from going green. Can I either 'daisychain' two pressurised filters together or can I have the pressurised filter feeding into a normal gravity fed filter with just some foam and...

    What treats to give pond fish?

    Hi all. I was just wondering if there are any food treats I could give my pond fish to brighten up their diet a bit? They are a mixture of goldfish type fish, and a couple of Koi. I really don't know much about what food they'd enjoy? Maybe Mealworms or some other fishy delicacy? Many thanks.

    Problem with Fishmate 15000 filter not clearing water.

    Thanks for all your replies. Strangely enough, in the last week I've started to see a change in the water, which seems to be starting to clear. I'll keep my eye on it, but can anyone advise what plants would be best for my pond? It currently just has lily pads and some 'duckweed'? Are there...

    Problem with Fishmate 15000 filter not clearing water.

    Hi again. Many thanks for the replies. Will take some photos when I get a minute, but the pond doesn't look that spectacular at the moment. The water seems to be a bit green and is very cloudy. We definitely can't see the bottom. I'm not sure if I can add a skimmer but will have a look? I...

    Problem with Fishmate 15000 filter not clearing water.

    Hi all. First post here so be gentle.:) I have a bit of a problem with a new Fishmate 15000 filter not clearing the water in my pond. It's a pressurized filter with built in UV lamp which is supposed to be for ponds of 3750 litres (fully stocked with koi) to 15000 litres with no fish stock...
