    Thanks for the offer lol I've got nearly a week and a half to make it look like it's only just been installed so the mass of cobwebs will have to go and the edges of the tank will need a clean to remove the water marks etc

    Had to clear the garage our a couple of times over the last couple of days so I could make the platform for the bio chamber the correct height, connect a temporary pump to it, fill it up, stick some aeration in it and let it run for a couple of days while I PP it etc. Going to put in 50 litres of K1 as soon as I see the chlorine has gassed off so maybe later tonight or tomorrow morning?

    My mistake I realised as I was filling it up was I forgot to put drain off of any kind so may need to siphon the water out or get a puddle pump to empty it after PP'ing and HP'ing it in a couple of days time. Might have to scoop the K1 out before trying to empty it?

    Just checked the temperature controller as it felt quite warm in the garage, the heater was off and the temperature in the tank was 26.7 degrees C

    All 3 koi appear to be eating well and swimming around quite happily

    Will test the water tomorrow.

    Just checked the floating thermometer and it's showing about 27 and that's the opposite far corner from the filter return.

    Just got round to checking the bio chamber this afternoon and it seems it hasn't lost much water in the last week or 2? I'd filled it to the bottom of top supports and now it's just dropped 2 or 3mm I think which due to the garage being best part of 30 degrees for a few days and it's bubbling a little bit I was expecting to see the water level a bit lower. I think I filled it as high as mentioned above anyway?

    Just got to clean some K1 and stick it in there so I can PP it just to make sure it's OK to connect onto the rest of the system

    Just going to go with 50 litres first to see how well it boils and add more later if I can find the stuff that's currently hidden in the shed somewhere
