    What do you guys think is the best way to "polish" pond water? Keeping it crystal clear sort of like in a household fish tank. :)

    A sand and gravel filter works really well, I have a 100 gallon S&G on my pond.

    Both setup would help polish your pond. But I would go with an gravity sand gravel filter.

    The Chagoi in the top picture is about three years old when that picture was taken, she was growing about 8-10" per year and now at five years she is about 37"
