After moving several times the last few years I'm finally settled and plans have started for my v3 system. Going to build a 24'x24' greenhouse with the walls and roof done in Solexx greenhouse cover except the rear north facing wall. That wall will have a 36" entry door and 2 garage doors, the idea of the garage doors is so I can place the tanks closer to the wall so they take up less space and if I need access to the backs for any reason can open the doors.

Fish tanks will be either 2x round tanks or 2x 330 gallon IBCs, to be determined.
1x 85 gallon cone tank for a radial flow settler/filter.
1x 85 gallon cone tank for a mineralization tank similar to the one in Web4Deb's dome.
1x 200 gallon tank with K1 or other biomedia MBBF
1x 100 gallon buried tank for a sump

My area is too warm for trout but too cold for tilapia and I can't afford to heat the water that much so my plan with this much filtration is I can run it as just RAS over winter without the need of the growbeds since they will lose a lot of heat. Will have a mix of bluegill and channel cats with some goldfish just for fun lol. Since I have pumps laying around anyway I'm most likely going to do a dual-pump system with one recirculating from the sump to FT and the other doing sump to GBs as part of the winter design, keeps it simple compared to adding a bunch of valves to do the same.

So far nothing has been built yet, in talks with a company to build the greenhouse and I imagine it will be a somewhat slow process.

Mostly finalized the plan and the concrete slab has been poured with the drain lines (red) buried underneath.

The square around the sump is a temporary 3'x3' hole left in the slab until my sump tank gets here and I can get it dug in. Then I'll handmix some concrete to fill it in around the tank.

woo hoo. I'll be the first to tag in for the excitement. But it looks like your IBC tanks need some work to make them round like the plan calls for =) oh maybe the second one they went square/rectangular.
