    My pond is 2900 gallons and I have a 250 gallon tank. For the filter material I use plastic snow fence I think it cost about $10 dollars a roll and I bought two rolls. I also have blue filter media that I got from Amazon on the bottom to trap the dirt. That along with a 30 watt UV light keep the pond crystal clear.

    I used the floor buffer pads cut up for my skippies. Bought them in the tool rental section of home depot where they rent floor buffers.

    worked well. Welcome btw! :)
