Hello-I'm trying to make a affordable start in aquaponics in my small (10 x 20) greenhouse. I'm looking to have a ~300 Gal fish tank, but the options I have found so far are either too big to fit in…Continue

"You could buy square fish ponds - they are about 5 x 3 feet and 1.5 deep (you need to cut them down in height) they hold 100 gallons.  I tried them and they work great, you have to support them though with wood or block completely around…"

"Anthony- One gallon takes up 231 cubic inches, or 0.133681 cubic feet. (And it weighs 8.3 pounds.) So 30 cubic feet @ 70% = 21; 21 / 0.133681 gives 157 gallons, minus the 2 dry inches, and you wind up with a working figure around 150…"

"I have a 75 gallon home for geriatric feeders and those ones you pay $14 to win for your kids at the carnival. If you quarantine them in a 10Gal with plenty of air, a simple filter, and water from the target tank for a week or so, you can see if you…"

Terry Healy replied to Vance J. Rifenberick's discussion Plumbing For our IBC system in the group Aquaponics For Beginners
"Vance, Re: item one. The only likely situation that would result in over saturation is an air leak on the intake side of you pump. If you use a submersible pump, this will never happen. For the air stone, the more the better."

Matt T. replied to Terry Healy's discussion Filter solids from FT or not?
"I think it all depends on what fish you are raising, and if you are using floating raft beds, or NTF channels. You would want a filter for the later two, no matter what type of fish you have. I have had bluegill in a small tote system with a media…"
