    Chestnut,

    What material did you use for the joints on your patio?

    Started out for Jap Maple but will block view of pond from swing. Right now it is a annual flower bed:)without flowers
    TR- it is a polymer sand that you wet and it hardens

    Not true. Nitrosomas and nitrobacter live on and in the filter material/substrate. There is very little impact on them.


    Very nice looking pond and landscape!

    Not so much on the filter media but in the water itself.

    That's what I am saying though. The benificial bacteria don't live in the water column.

    It limits certain aspects that promote the the optimal growth of bacteria in the filter media and in the gravel bottom. No ones going to punish you if you use one, I just believe from 15 years exp. that its a quick fix that can be treated just as effectivly in other ways.
