It doesn't matter whether you have a mechanical or conventional or both for your filteration , neither will having one or 2 pumps for your turnover
gaurantees anything . It doesn't matter if you have good drainage or surface skimmer in place . None of this can gaurantee "clean" or " Clear" water
if they're not operating in the right manner , or if they're not in the right sequence of placement ..... .
This brownish algae water you're refering to , is not Brown Alage ... neither do you call this brown algae water .... .
I can assure you , this is " cooked water " , meaning , your whole system is not propery run or set , especially the placement of aeration, water return , fiteration media etc , etc . or even skimmer positions , as well as your feeding habits .
If your "clean Chamber" is clean with clear water , there will never be a case of brown water in your pond , unless your clean chamber is also holding such water . You can look into your clean chamber and I gaurantee you , that the water now is brownish too . Somewhere is wrong Brother .
I hope you dun mind my frankness ... .
It will definitely help , if you could spend some time to take photos of your pond set-up , filteration chambers , etc , etc and I assure you ... , it can be fixed in no time through just some of the advises from the brothers here ...
Hope you can put up some photos pretty fast ... for the time being , stop feeding to reduce further contamination or pollution ... . It doesn't mater much if kois are not feed for a period . Feeding under contaminated water might be harmful for them more than helping them ..
