Koi Pond - Filtration System and Plants

After taking a swim in the koi pond, we decided to get slightly more serious and got some plants to decorate the pond side nicely.

We got five of those whitish green plants and 4 of those reddish plants as well as some bamboo look alike plants and floating water plants. Looks pretty impressive isn't it?

Floating plants on the waterfall, and a japanese ZEN theme is in with this little stone pagoda thing at the far side of the pond. We installed a small light bulb in there too!

Here's the all important biofilter.
First chamber - Japanese Mat, with aeration
Second chamber - Bio Balls, with aeration
Third chamber - Bio Stones, with aeration

Hope this set up is sufficient, or else I'll have to start thinking about a trickle tower...
