Once I get the water clear I'll remove them before adding koi. When I run the electric out to the pond I'll probably invest in a UV light.

Well I've finally purchased proper filter media after a couple years now. Haha. I got 4 half sheets of matala off Amazon.

Added filter media to my filter today! Update on fish - apparently there was a male and female in the pond so now I have at least 5 decent sized goldies in there and numerous fingerlings swimming around in there.

Feels great to finally have decent mechanical filtration on the pond. I have plenty of bio balls in the barrel but up to this point practically no sponges. I now have 6 layers (9 inches!) of matala sponges ranging from the black coarse to gray fine.
