Rain water tanks are close to being in place.
I think I need to dig a sump tomorrow.
Start pounding in posts for the tower troughs and supports. Just got a lazer level so hopefully I can pound in long posts and then mark/cut them all off close to level.

Baily looks very similar to a Blue Heeler X Dalmatian we had the pleasure of owning.

At the moment I think he may be a blue heeler x hound (something like beagle but bigger.) Currently as a puppy he has the "cute" look of a beagle.

Yay for the puppy! Our daughter's name is Bailey, so I definitely approve. Awesome score on the tanks and delivery!

And So it begins. Now the tank for this system is actually inside the end bay of the fish shed. The two tanks you see in the background are not placed yet.
Today I got stared by digging a little bit to settle a stock tank down into the ground about 12 inches.

Then the neighbor boys came over and helped out with shoveling out the remaining horse poo and hauling the concrete blocks over and raking the site for the first two tower troughs to go in.. And then they and the cook started cutting the metal pipe as I worked on laying it out and started Pounding the posts in.

How rare is this, the cook actually came out with the camera and took pictures, otherwise there would be none from today.

Another 18 to go and then I can cut them all off level. Add the horizontal pipes and clamps.
Lay in some concrete blocks and walk boards,
attach the liner
Run Drain lines back to sump tank,
Run plumbing to tops of towers
Run drain and feed between fish tank and sump
Move towers
Move fish.

At this rate, I may actually be moving over the elements from the old Market system and setting it up to move some fish to before I get the bigger tower system fully functional.

I think tomorrow we will actually wind up bringing over a large load of stuff from the other house and I think the 10 tower unit from the market will be part of it. That way I can actually get something up and running here quickly.
I'll probably set one of the smaller white fish tanks in the near bay and place the small tower units out in front as something of a display for people as they pull up.

Oh we are getting some beautiful rain from the tropical storm. Dang I wish I had the gutters installed to collect some of it in my new rain water tanks.

We brought the 10 tower rig over today and I got it hooked up to one of the 410 gallon tanks so I can make sure it's all good to bring some fish over soon.

Please don't mind the stubble or algae growing on the towers, those are just the neglected ones that I've had hanging up with water going through them but haven't re-planted. I didn't clean them up as I wanted to get them set back up fast to keep the bio-filter alive.
