koi produce ammonia around the clock, this is released when absorbing oxygen through the gills. Ammonia is formed in a toxic form when the pH is above 7,4.

In a biological filter bacteria convert ammonia via nitrite into nitrate. For this conversion two kinds of bacteria are needed. The first group converts ammonia into nitrites, these bacteria are also called ‘AOB’. The second group converts nitrite into nitrate, these bacteria are also called ‘NOB’. Both processes take place with the use of oxygen; hence it is important that the water flowing through the filter is rich in oxygen.
