I live in Broomfield with a little backyard and pond. I just set up a flood table next to the fishpond. It is only 2 x 3 ft approx. and I also have 10 ft 6 inch pvc flood and drain(2 5 ft sections) with net pots over the fish tank.

1 cubic foot = 7.48051948 US gallons

45 fish seems like lot of fish for the size of grow bed you have without any supplemental filtration.

Welcome Sherill,

Thanks for joining the Aquaponic Gardening community!  I hope you find it a fun place to explore aquaponics.  There is a real blend of experienced and new aquapons in this community, so please don’t hesitate to get in there and start asking questions.  Everyone is quite happy to help out new members – no question is too basic.  

A great place to start is to read the “How to Use This Site” link on the upper right corner, “Start Here” section of the Home page.  You might also find the “Aquaponic Gardening Rules of Thumb” guidelines helpful.  And please join the Colorado Aquapons group (see the Groups tab above) so we can all stay in touch (I'm in Boulder).

Please add a profile image, participate and check in with us every day!  We are constantly posting news about aquaponics and the good food movement.

Thanks again for joining us, and I look forward to getting to know you.
