Hi Guys,
My system is finally up. Have had a bad back so I had to get someone in to do it for me.
It has 2 grow beds a wall garden and 1 FT and 1 Sump,
Im planing to grow trout then some SP in the tank and some maron in the Sump. But im going to harvest the marron when they get to about 1kg each.

Here are the pics.

The beginning there was nothing...

Then there was something.....

Im taking it in stages, first get rid of the clorine and get the balance right. then the planting.
Ive just planted some salad greens (just for the hell of it).

I dont think plants will have any problems while you dechlorinate will they?

The only issue I'm seeing is access to the FT.... looks kinda limited!
Other than that I really like the color and the overall look of it!

You will probably need a ladder to plant and harvest from the wall garden, access looks a little awkward to me.

It is tight, but I can reach. So its all good in the end. The third IBC cage is a "wait in progress" if this works out, I might add a third growbed, and I want to grow fruit trees also.
Just waiting for the cycle to kick in so I can get some trout (Bloody Fisheries taking their time with the permit).

Ive had fresh water, brackish water and now marine fish all my life, but this will be the first time the fish will be working for me.

What do you guys think?
