Currently running on 3 stage trickle filter.

1) Mechanical filter.
2) Lava rock | Bio Ring - house bacteria
3) Activated carbon

look for resources in google and youtube where i gain mine. all learning process.


I kept ac. carbon last chamber due to insufficient chamber. Maybe my arrangement not in order. Still learning and my pond running well so far.

Perform 20% water change 2 or 3 days once.

you can DIY own filter for aquarium to house your FH and all depends on you.
