I bought this pond today for my tilapias. 

The size is: 1.65M long, 1.30M wide and 50cm high. It can hold up to 350 Liters (about 90 gallons). Is this ok to grow about 20 tilapias in?

I'll plant some more tomatoes in there :)

I don't think I have enough space for a cucumber where the  system is, but maybe a bean plant can go there. 

Thanks for the tip

I would increase tomatoes by 2 and remain constant with your other plants. I would add some type of trellising fruit, or pod, like a cucumber or bean. That's my opinion anyway, not really much experience with those other than bean and cucumber.

You should take everything I say about filtration with a grain of Nitrate Salt.

Air pumps are a good thing and I've even been known to hook those up to a battery backup in case of power failure. During hot weather it doesn't take long for large fish to use up all the dissolved oxygen in a small tank.

If it gets bad, you can always perturb the water yourself, or with the aid of some machine. 

I don't know if I can hook it up to a battery backup. But the electricity doesn't have much failure here. SO I don't think it will be a problem
