    Bakki showered ponds around the world

    To those of you who are interested I have been collecting appraisals of bakki showered ponds all over the world and finally have been able to update them. There are now ponds from malaysia, indonesia and US. Soon our own tewa koi pond will be added. Here is the link

    http://www.tewakoi.com/BakkiShowersCountryIndex.htm

    If anyone would like to have their bakki showered pond added please email me at [email protected]

    please send a description of the pond such as
    depth
    volume
    turnover rate
    amount of bacteria house used
    indoor or outdoor
    whether you have low or high tds water
    number of kois in the pond

    and photos of the pond and showers.

    Hello again Craig

    This will in metric units mean turnover 1.2 and pumps handling ~27 300 l/h. No particle left un-grinded for more than ~48 minutes and the same goes for oxygenation and degassing. You dilute the system with 6% daily. How often are you planning to take the system down and refilling it?
    The speed is presumably high enough to keep dust from settling in your system.

    You feed 0.57 kg pr day off what protein level and to who many inches off Nishikigoi? With this data I could toy with some calculation up here in the cold north.

    All your “bad” readings are 0.00 and pH is?

    Thanks again for giving us something to play around with in the cold time to come.
