The tank looks great, if made your growbed in a similar fashion it would look good and save you a lot of mucking around with plumbing fittings, ie, make one big 'L' shaped GB with one drain straight into the FT.

Sometimes getting water flow to lots of little GB's can be problematic having one big GB makes the plumbing and water flow easy.

thanks Slowboat. i thought about the GB's in the same fashion, but want to try how well i can grow in the begining, so went for barrel(cheap alternative) once i gain more confidence , will be thinking about the concrete GB's :)

Planned to use 2 or 3 barrels. Unfortunately i cannot afford IBC as too costly in the place i live.

Lots of work to do. there a lot babies in main tank, which i cannot see as its too deep. Need to wait for 8 weeks so babies start coming up. Hope all the babies dont get eaten by big ones
