Didn't see this post at the time John, and you've probably realised already, but 30 Jades will need a LOT more than 200L of gravel. They need 25L+ of bio-filtration (wet gravel) per fish to safely get them through to plate size, so about 750L+ of wet gravel for that amount of Jades.

Hi all,
I'm in Deception Bay. Just started out with 1 IBC system. Only have 5 goldfish in here so far but am receiving silver perch soon. I bought the complete system which consists out of:
1 x IBC, I have 500l in the fish tank and the growbed on top. It is set up with just a stand drain and I have the pump running continuously. The pump is an aquapro 550. I also run a aquaone airpump with 2 golfballs.
I'm already contemplating gettin a 2nd IBC and doing this one myself and set it up with a bell syphon.

Hi I live in Brisbane Fig Tree Pocket and have been running an aquaponics system for 12 months.
Have Jade Perch which I am now harvesting.
Have 3 grow beds sitting above 2000 x 1000 x 900 pond.
Had approx 50 perch grown to 250mm
Veggies have been a hit and miss. Using clay beads and bell siphon system. Great at growing green but struggled with the fruit. Ie. Zucchini flowers lots of them but no zucchini, great at lettuce.
Will continue to perservier and will be starting 2nd batch of perch in May.

Hiya guys and girls, from strathpine - north Brisbane. I have been lurking for a while and learning. I caught the bug off a customer about 9 yrs ago when I delivered steel to him.
Have not got my system running yet (tank only so far) and life keeps getting in the way

I have just planted 2 media beds for the first time. My next step is to complete a reliable aeration system and commission a deep water bed. The tank is approximately 2500 ltrs housing 35 Jade Perch. All is contained in a hot house with a 1000 ltr sump outside and dug into the ground.
