What was left of the water had gone a rather icky shade of green. Pumped it all out and turned the tank over and cleaned it out with a high pressure hose.

Ill refill it to morrow and start the system cycling. I have a couple of tomatoe plants ready to go in and am due to collect a new batch of fish in a coupl eof weeks :cheersarm

I hope you put a supply of good healthy mosquito larva aside (if there was any) for the new fish ;)

How did you manage to tip over the unit to clean it, it is quite heavy isn't it?

That sounds awesome Boxhead, can we have photo progress please. I so want to do this in the future, maybe this summer I'll get a mini system set up in my fish pond.

Interestingly there was nothing in the water - just green and murky - probably too cold for the wrigglers - or anything else for that matter :shock:

THe tanks quiet light J maybe 15kgs.

I pumped the water out first though :roll:

Hey Boxhead :scratch
How are you setting yours up. Just fish tank and grow bed, constant height system, with a sump or some other marvelous scheme?

6000litres is a hell of a lot of water for a tank at maximum stocking you could potentially have 600 fish :o

and one hell of a grow bed :thumbright
