    Sodium Thiosulphate

    Can anyone direct me to an idiot's guide on how to use this when adding tap water to a pond?

    I don't have a trickle set up - just dump water when cleaning out of a filter a couple of times a week...

    It certainly looks like that one.

    These dimensions are probably close enough. I hope you can read them.

    Is it just you and me here tonight :)

    Pond dimensions are not easy as it's a curve with shelves.

    However, the main dimensions are 2m wide x 6.3m long.
    There's a 60cm long shelf which is 30cm...

    Thanks Sim

    We don't have any moving beds at all - just an airline to boil the 1st bay at the moment. We have 3 bays of static alfagrog following the sponges. They seem to be working to keep the...
