like to have 2 but one will work got the layout of how I'm building it.Using the ibc for a fish tank which will overflow into 2 to3 beds that are foot and a half by eighty inches then to a sump tank ,which will be pump into a bio filter then to the tank.
The eventual goal is to cover the entire pool and build out a commercial scale system that will use the full space available. I am taking baby steps though. I have covered the shallow end, have two small test systems up (1 media, 1 dwc), and am working towards a larger system with a few IBC totes.
If you are ever around town, I would love to bounce ideas off you. I'll keep you in mind next time I'm headed north.
I've never figured out how to reliably tell male and female channel catfish apart and to try breeding in such small tanks, I think you would have to be certain you were putting a proper pair together. Catfish don't mature till 3-5 years in age and by then they could be really big fish. The one I kept for two years (which means it was probably three years old) weighed in at 10 lbs.
