Do you have a mechanical filter? I'm trying to figure out how to avoid clogging the bio filter with sludge.
No, we don't have a mechanical filter. We avoid the sludge by feeding the filter with powdered bacteria in the spring. The bacteria "eats" the sludge. We do get the fish emulsion, but the tank has a bottom opening and we drain it when need be and flush the whole thing out. But the bacteria is a real "must", we believe. Before we used it, we had more problems with the yucky sludge and keeping the water clear. I belong to another pond site on Yuku called The Old Garden pond and we have a really smart bunch of people. You might check it out and would be welcome to join. We are all problem solvers with ponds and help each other all the time.
Hope I've helped..................
