hi all! just want to say great site. ok so i have temperature of between 18 - 21 degrees at the moment in my ibc tank. the approx litres its holding in the tank is 800. im wondering if anybody has methods for cooling water as i.m thinking to employ trout. i have a concrete back yard so there's no chance of running pipe underground to drop temp that way. anyway i look forward to some feedback

Hi Tomic - My advice is to use the natural water temperatures to run your AP System. Stock fish species that can handle the widest variety of temperature and water conditions in your local. If you must run a Trout ONLY system - do not stock them until water temps can be maintained at 18oC or below - and harvest them before water temps constantly maintain 22oC. Best wishes - ColinW
