Welcome M.D :)

If you grow your fish to plate size - say 400g you will have about 50Kg fish in 1000L :shock:

Better get the much more GB ready :D

10 fish (500 gram ea) per 100 litres of growbed.

Yep, another 400 litres of growbed would be handy in 6 months :)

I would actually run the extra beds now, better aeration, better filtration, and I reckon plants grow just fine with nitrate of 0.

Hey Steve, can you finish it by March. I'll be over then and I'd love to have a look, or do you need help to put it together?

Oops. Didn't mean that I think you can't do it. I know, I know you're really busy.

Hi all, am new to forums so not quite sure. I have had a successful 12 months (after a previous twelve month or more of research, planning and building) with only a few spikes in test results (due to factors I could identify), so far so good!

I would be interested to know about any local food aquisition sites if they are available. Currently I am running about 120 SP (hard to count exactly) in 1000l with around 800l of growbeds (another 450l ready if needed). It is my first set-up and I would be interested to see larger more advanced systems.

Md i have left you a pm

Hi,
Are there any get-togethers coming up in Victoria. I went to one last Feb. at Jim's place & I thought there was discussion of holding more throughout the year. Maybe I have missed out. The way to learn is by seeing other ppl's systems.
Just a suggestion, but maybe we could get someone to arrange to email ppl with notices of coming dates, if members don't mind sharing their email addies. Just a thought.

Loz.
