In preparation for the new house to be built I have started throwing together numbers for the new system.

At this stage the dream would be to have a system I can pull 2 fish out of around once a week, with some left over for friends and family.

I hoping the below would allow me to stock approximately 200 fish a year made up of 100 silver perch and 100 rainbow trout.

My experience so far is that I can grow the trout from April/May through to around November, at which stage they are plate sized.

The silver perch will be in the system year round. I'm hoping add 100 each year. The silver perch take around 2 years to get to plate size in my climate.

For the tanks I am thinking of putting in a 5000l water tank cut in half for 2, 2500l fish tanks.

For grow beds I'm thinking of making up 4 media beds 1m wide x 4m long x 40cm high, and 4 raft beds the same as above but only 60cm wide. The beds will be similar construction to columns.

The above should give me around 4800l of media depending on how high I fill the beds.

I will more then likely run a radial flow, static up flow and bio filter but excluding those, I'm looking for feed back on if the above will support the fish load.
