    is this enough filtration

    i am wondering if this is enough filtration. i have a 100 gal pond wth three 55 gal drums consecutive.the first is an up flow with 40 brushes to act a mechanical. the 2 is an upflow with j-mat enough to fill 3/4 of the way the third is an upflow with 3 cubic feet of springflo.i am wondering if this is going to be enough ssa for nitrification. thanks for the advice

    It depends. How many guppies you planning to keep in 100 gallons of water?
    I couldn't help myself. I've been feeling like a brat all day long

    Fry tank I assume???

    The load...fish and the food.....must be balanced with the filtration and aeration of the pond system. So we have no idea of the load.

    I sure hope 100 gallons was a typo. That is not enough to do more that keep a few fry for a few weeks.

    yes i have 70 fry at 1 in in my 80 gallon tank i am pushing the limits and getting frustrated with all the water changes and since i have a 95% pond built instead of just going to show koi right away i might as well let the fry and me live happy. i will keep one of them i liek and get rid of the rest. i really plan on just keeping tosai or a little bigger maybe 9 inches tops in the 1000 gal i recently meet a guy with a 15000 gal pond aroung the corner with no fish just two turtles the filter is sand filters and he told me that if i take care of it i can use it so when tosai grow out they go.also i like alot of small koi going crazy then 2 or three mature koi all slow and boring only my opinion
