Starting a stock tnak pond
Im using a over kill pump magdrive 2200
Please comment if im doing it right or wrong

THE SET UP

Magdrive punp attached to the pvc pipes
Since its too strong i used T to put back some of the water in the tank
Circulating the water at the bottom or the tank
The rest goes straight to the 55 gallon drum
As a bog filter

BOG FILTER

its a 55 gallon drum
Inside it is a 30gallon drum cut in half
And turned upside down inaide the 55 gallon drum
The watwr supply goes inside that 30 gallon drum
Using uniseal
I have bio balls inside the 30gallon drum
And also have air supply
I have a waste valve ton the side of the 55gallon straight inside the 30gallon
Easy to clean the waste just open the valve
After that i filled it with pebbles then lava rocks then peagravel
Planted some water plants the roots will help filter the water

I dont have enough gravel at the moment so the water is aboved the gravel
I throw in guppies for now so no mosquitoes

So what do you guys think?

The fiest tank after the 55gallon is a catfish tank
Second tank is a tilapia

The water at the bottom of the tank is circulating
And the water ontop is also circulating
Now top and bottom are swirling
Then i have a fishnet to catch those fish poop
Every afternoon ill just wash off that fishnet
No more leaves debris of any kind floating around

Thank you
I really like the sound of the water too
Juat using an elbow sideways creates more bubbles on the water and spread the water also

Was wondering if i can add shrimp in this tank
But im afraid if the tilapia will eat them haha

My ponds are full of plants . The fish do fine

The plants help keep the water in perfect shape
