Idk...everything I've read on the size of a bog states a bog's surface area should be 30% of the pond's surface area. That's if you have a decent fish load. 15% without any fish.The existing pond I have now I have two waterfalls and to bio filters which are oversized for the pond. The existing pond will merge with the new addition. As for size of the wetland filter I am trying to go larger but I have one problem their is a deck and also on the other size a cesspool which I cannot go near. The size varies from contractor to contractor on size of Wetland filter. Some people say 10 to 20 % of the pond size others say 20 to 30% here is a link which have different specs. I know the larger the filter the better.
My bog is slightly larger than 30% and I have a very large fish load. Over 30 fish (various goldfish and about 6 koi) ranging from new babies to huge koi over 10 years old.
My water has been crystal clear since adding the bog. Before the bog it was solid green pea soup.
