koi. I have two vortex chambers leading to a Polaris bubblebead
filter and two 40-watt UV's from Rainbow. The vortex is gravity
fed from the 4" bottom drain. I purge these tanks into a 5'

That accounts for the lush foliage
everywhere you look. I have my yard planted for all-season
interest. No mowing, no lawn! It has a stream with three small
bogs emptying into the pond, and three other bogs at the

front of the deck, nothing grows because the fish are always
looking for me!
