My new pond is only 60 gallons and I would like to house a few gold fish and aquatic plants in it eventually. For now I just want to keep it from getting gunky! I have searched google and youtube for hours and found either contradicting information or unclear instructions. Can I use the batting material? should I use the dish washing pads at the dollar store o cabon in a mesh bag? What is supposed to go in first? Can these filters be made to run with no electricity? how? Iv got a million questions and I plan on going to get my supply's tomorrow so can any one help me out?

GREAT! I love to recycle so I am off to post ad's and see if any one has some of the items I will need for my bio filter (un-used scrubby pads, a rubbermaid container, pvc pipe). If not no biggie!
