    Probably they were custom made for a specific pond.

    Now are these direct from Momotaro? Is your friend goin to use Bacteria house in this unit? Because that is one expensive looking unit if filled with Bacteria House.

    Probably right, have to ask Rob at Majestic for sure. Just sharing the pics that were emailed to me, I had not seen one that was a solid unit with no space between the trays.

    I was told it was direct from Momotaro, yes will be filled with B.H. and I would also assume has a giant price tag.

    Note to self: Don't share pics anymore without having all the info...

    So if I am not mistaken....it will take 7 1/4 250kg bales to fill that thing....each bale at $4625(per Keirin website) equals...$32K worth of Bacteria House....plus the shower is what maybe $5K-6K....So maybe almost $40K of filteration.......I might be wrong on the price, but that is what I get out of it...

    That would be to fill that one shower tier....roughly that "Shower" is around 480 gals...Plus the amount of flow you need to push water through that would be incredible...I dont think a mega primer would be enough even at 12,000 hr turnover...
