I purchased this kit from Laguna Koi Ponds. It contains the Matala 25LP pump, 25’ of 3/8” weight hose and an 8” air hose diffuser.
Here are some photos. Hoping this helps clear up green water. Fish seem to like swimming through the bubbles.
Last photo is pump in box with filter for water to keep pond topped off. Timer waters pond twice a day for 8 mins with chlorine free water. During this heat it has kept pond level constant. Last picture is how the water gets to pond via four small sprinkler heads.

Looks great! I'm headed out of town for a bit and when I get back I'll hook up my aerator like yours, right now I still have my smaller one running. It's always a "surprise" when the bigger aerator gets going, then in no time they are racing back and forth through it :)

We put in a nice big aerator last year after running the "baby aerator" for six years. Our fish were terrified for the first hour... then they got up the nerve to swim through it and have loved it ever since! I think the bigger aerators also help camouflage the fish a bit better in the pond. It's tough to see them when the bubbles are going.

Need the camouflage. The heron flies right over pond about 20’ up, twice a day coming and going between the lakes. Between the waterfalls, the gushing aerator and all the lily pads, I hope the bird never stops to attempt breaking in the net. And, I used to like those evil birds.
This photo, taken by a friend of mine show the evil bird in all his glory.

They are really neat birds, not their fault we build a buffet for them. I still love seeing them, they fly over just about every day. Since I netted the big pond they have not bothered it at all. My fault they got the fish in the hot tub pond, totally forgot to net it. And the other small pond had a tear in the net, easy pickings.............
