If you have a large fish load in your pond, we recommend adding bio-balls to boost your filtration capacity of your system.  They can be placed in a waterfall box, filter chamber or an area that experiences a lot of water flow.

Bio-balls use biological filtration to clean your pond water.  They provide a large amount of surface area for the nitrifying bacteria to colonize.  Nitrifying bacteria take the Ammonia that fish produce and convert it to less harmful compounds.

Bio-balls also make a great replacement for lava rock if you have a decorative water feature.  You can also use bio-balls if you plan on making a DIY filter for your pond.
