    Do you have any suggestion for those who are using round buckets for the filter? I am using a 32 gal round bucket and using a 2 inch pipe that runs through it. I used cement glue since it was an abs pipe and its stil leaking. This is the 2nd? time that I have to redo it and its stressing me out. I also can not find any 2 inch rubber washer to go around where the pipes meet at the bucket. Please help me fix this problem.

    Nice and clean! Might want to? light proof it so that algae doesn’t grow in it though?

    that filter is no way big enough for that pond.?

    This is a good video EXCEPT those scrub pads!!!!! You shouldn’t use those because they have anti – algae something or another? in them. Just spend the small amount of money on the bio balls and filter foam for this project. Everything else is PERFECT!!!!!

    NEVER USE SPONGES OR SCRUBBERS FROM THE GROCERY! as these contain anti-? fungal chemicals and should never be used for aquarium or pond purposes. better BUY ACTUAL FILTER MEDIA FROM the fish stores and stop being too cheap because YOUR FISH WILL DIE. you can buy ceramic rings, filter sponges and activated charcoal from the petstores. ceramic rings make the water clean for the fish, they serve as the biological filtration. activated carbon removes the cloudiness and the filter sponge removes poop
