Robert, I ran across an article the other day, where the guy used galvanized fencing about 48" high, fashioned it into a circle, lined the inside with that 1/2" accordian type SM insulation and used a fiber reinforced tarp as a liner for a fish tank. The article had photos and it looked like it was about 8' across. Hope this helps with your plans.

A guy with years of experience in the aquaculture industry commented on the walleye wannbe's page.  He explained that due to the cannabalization rate it is far from profitable.  They also take far too long to grow to full size.  I think I might try yellow perch or crappie.  Bass is another possibility.  I really want to do rainbow trout, but that will have to wait for my  backyard unit.  It would be too expensive to chill the water on my front porch.

Hi Robert,

Sorry no not that I know off, I mostly deal with Gold fish, silver perch, rainbow and brown trout in my Aquaponics systems.
