Thanks guys. I've got to get sponges for this filter too. All I had have are a ton of bioballs in two mesh bags. I've got until spring though, everything is in hibernation mode right now.

I have a small pond and its under several white and turkey oaks. I know this doesn't help but I gave up keeping leaves out. Im in Florida so really is only a big issue 4 months a year give or take.
Floaters help and so does a pleco

I've heard if a common pleco living in an unheated pond much smaller than mine and wintering over, but I'm not sure if I believe it. My pond is located under two white oaks and meeting is the only thing that keeps leaves off the bottom and allows me to pull them out. I think I will benefit from better filtration this year, too and that should help.
