Just an update to all. Well today was the day I added fish. 8 Rainbow trout in total about 3 inches each.
They have only been in for 1/2 a day but are now feeding i'd Throw a few pallets in. They really smash them. But reading back on above info from Terra's info, I should be cautiously feeding them and monitor the ammonia, nitrite and nitrate.
So I will resist the temptation to feed a lot (maybe once a day by a few pallets only) until I'm sure that nitrate is increasing and their is no rise in Nitrite. Which will mean that my biological filter is kicking in.
Any feedback, thoughts, ideas will be gratefully accepted
Cheers
Rod

Yep, just take your time, slowly raise the feed rate, do testing once a day for the first 2 weeks or so till you are confident that the ammonia is being converted promptly.

Don't go adding anything else or trying to adjust the PH at this stage. If the ammonia spikes, consider salting the water.
