    Thumbs up Kiss

    Keep it Simple S.....:

    A skimmer, bead filter, bakki shower, 10% water change daily...is all we've needed to keep the water at a level where we've never had any health problems and have raised our koi from 8" to 24+" in three years... 6 koi in 900 gallons... Clear water, no UV after first 2 years...

    Aloha! Mike T
