    Looking good Phil.

    I was thinking about a Draco Minima as it's a small combi isn't it? I wasn't sure if the inlet and outlet would be the right way for my current setup as it doesn't say on the website if you can specify a left or right handed option so never followed it up.
    All we ever wanted was everything,
    All we ever got was cold,
    Get up, eat jelly, sandwich bars and barbed wire,
    Squash every week into a day.

    The plan it to lay Indian stone rather than decking, so I'm thinking of replacing my Eric 2 with a drum and bio.
    I had looked at the Oase compact which would make me over filtered but with the pipe layout it would make it difficult to fit with the patio plan.

    The Draco Minima is the perfect size and will fit down the short wall of the pond where my bottom drain comes out, then I can box it in with a seat at the side of the pond.

    I know I'm on the edge of its limits and at 60 I have no plans to extend the pond or add more fish, I got the little ones to grow on to keep the old boy company as he was on his own but is happily plodding along so we got him some mates.

    Does this seem a good way forward or would people advise something bigger?
    Ideally I need something slim, with piping at front and rear, I can get away with side entry using the Minima though.
    I also have mains water feed at the pond and a 4 inch waste that goes direct to drains so I'm covered for any type of install.

    Cheers Phil

    That's a lovely looking pond. I love how you have integrated it in with the decking. Can't help with the filter apart from saying that I have an Oase Compact Premium and it's pretty minimalistic for the amount of filtration it offers.
