Try filling the filter with water and then plugging it in and if it isn't making any sound make sure the plug and intake tube are all secure and try filling with water plugging it in and continue pouring water in

Take an aquarium sponge cut a hole in it and stick it on your filter intake it will catch big particles and grow good bacteria so every once in awhile rinse it in tank water not tap good luck

If these are koi, they belong in a pond, not a tank.

Agrees with lynda. Koi can grown well over a foot, and need to be in a pond. Unless you got like 1000g aquarium
