pond-filter upgrade

biofilter1

biofilter2

Since my 4 Goldfish decided to multiply several times this summer my biological trickle filter (made in 2012) ended up being much too small in volume and too hard to clean. So here’s the new one with 4 cutlery drainers stacked containing various biological filter materials (lava stones, perlite, ceramic tubes and Zeolite at the bottom), housed in a flowerpot and exit with a shower drain. All still working with the original solar pump system. Still working on a lid (instead of the splash hood from the kitchen).

tortoise sundial

I have been watching our tortoises angling themselves at the sun every sunny winter day for a long time now and decided to do some approximate measurements yesterday. Based on this there must be a business idea in the rental of tortoises to installers of solar panels and the like. Inquiries and cost estimates here.
