As ever, thanks so much for the interest and advice. I'm afraid I'm still not quite "getting" the whole pond thing yet! Ianbo, when you say 'get a filter twice the capacity of your pond' what does "capacity" refer to? Is it the flow rate? ie do I need a filter with a flow rate of 4600 l/h (my pond volume being 2300l)?
The other thing is, I have had various advice about how many times per hour the volume of the pond should be circulated: 2010 has previously suggested that once every 2 hours is common, with the ideal being once every 4 hours, but others have suggested once per hour. What should I be aiming for with my set-up?
Also, what does the "cm" of fish refer to? Is it the amount of fish per certain amount of water or similar?
Sorry if I sound clueless!
