hey guys

This is a discussion on hey guys within the Introduce Yourself forums, part of the Welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping category; --> That's probably what I would do. They're good filters and really inexpensive for how much they can get done....

Welcome to the forum

For the filtration, I think the tank is simply underfiltered. From what I've been taught, you should figure a filter does about 1/2 of what the box says.

Plus, Koi are very "dirty" fish (I kinda know... I'm a goldfish junky!).

What we use on our 75g aquariums (one for mbuna, one for fancy goldfish) are two Penguin 350B's each (these are similar to your HOB) and one Rena XP3 on each -- so each has two large HOB's and one decent sized canister. I also do large water changes on the tanks (Goldies 2x a week, Mbuna 1x a week).

Hope that helps!
