Curious where you go when you say you're back for the weekend? That's a good question on airstones. I've got a few in a box of other aquaculture junk. How many do you have. Media bed material?

During my off season I go work for a farmer for a month or two. This farm is several hours away so I come back for the odd season.
Right now I only have one that isn't worth fixing up. Hate the idea to throw it in the garbage. And I don't use a gravel based media bed so can't use it in that.

What I will probably end up doing with the stones and break them up then use them to make a clay mix for my masonry heater.

Finally posted the pictures I said I would a few months back. This is the big system with multiple fish tanks connected. Going to be making changes that way it runs better and add the aquaponic tanks. Gotta add airlines to that whole system. Let me know if you want more pictures.

Cool man! This is becoming a dream system. These pics are from last season? What was your harvest like? What kind of flow goes through the tanks?
What is this?

Are you keeping the cycle going in those massive MBBRs while you away?
I'm impressed and inspired. :notworthy:

Yes that was from last season. Hard to describe what I had for harvest as it was running for only about a month and and I was constantly moving fish into those tanks and then out of those tanks on a nearly daily basis. So the almond coloured tank is a pressurized sand filter. The mbbr are currently empty and dry. Once one season is done and before the new season starts I wash and disinfect everything including the filters so I have to start fresh every year. Just to much risk not to.

So with the sand filter I can start of around 70 GPM and as it plugs up it will drop. If I bypass the sand filter I can get 100-120 GPM. The flow gets split into both halves of the system.

Thanks crackenfish
I was thinking of how long it took coachchris to get his IBC MBBR up and working and it seemed like that was an obstacle to quick start-ups for the MBBRs?

I haven't found start ups to be slow. About the same as any other filter. I prefer the mbbr as it won't plug up and since it has to be aerated it gets a lot more oxygen than other types where the amount of oxygen the filter gets is based on how much is in the incoming water.

I think the water down there in Florida was part of the problem - super high in calcium carbonate or something along those lines if I remember right.

Our well water around here is around around a pH of 7.5 and is also considered hard. Some of my neighbours are from different provinces think our water is horrible. Our water would be considered soft compared to most of the well water in the province. High calcium or high magnesium. Some water is so high in iron that the water comes out rusty. So I am very fortunate to have water that fits the parameters for trout and basically on the "perfect" side of things.

My pond liners have arrived, now is time to build my growbeds and figure out how to install the liners and fit bulkheads through them.
