I'm guessing you don't have any trout in the FT ;)

Not quite so hot here, but a week of high 30's coming up and I still have about 40 (mostly really big) RT in the FT.
The chiller has been getting a workout bringing the water and soil temperature around the buried tanks and GBs down to the lowest possible starting point.

Yeah... everything was going swimmingly until we had a couple of hot days in late Oct and November. I wasn't around so couldn't fill with ice, a 5 degree jump in water temp was enough to knock several 8-9 inchers off in sy2 over the next 48 Hrs.
Realizing I couldn't be here every time it got suddenly hot I moved the freezer into the fish house lined it with plastic sheet filled it with salted water and connected it to continuous 240v supply. I built two envelope type stainless steel heat exchangers immersed them in the freezer and plumbed them one to each FT.
As the average temps got higher in mid December I moved the remaining survivors into FT1, disconnected sy2 HE and temps remain about half of ambient.

Yes no Trout I have Murray Cod

Forecast today (Friday) is up a couple of degrees to 45c

Had a 45c yesterday

Forecast for Sat / Sun / Mon is better news down to mid 30s , then back up to high 30s

Pleased with the work ive done in preparation to this hot season (shade cloth structure with side curtains I can drop to stop the hot wind damage to plants).

Ive been running the grow beds constant flood during the day and siphon at night .

Maximum water temp for the last 4 days was 32c Thursday evening

Morning water temps have been 28 / 29c

I did run a "Misting sprinkler" on the fish tank for a couple of hours yesterday.
