That net is pretty cool. Tilapia can be fast, keeping them in cages definitely helps loads with handling. However, it can make feeding a bit trickier.

Go big or go home! That tank is huge! I am curious as to how the tank is built... it looks like brick. Have you done anything to allow for thermal expansion and contraction. I built a brick reservoir and there was quite a bit of tech stuff about the expansion and contraction thing involved. What is it sealed with?

The outer wall of the Green house is Block, the Tank it's self, is rebar reinforced poured in Place concrete, with forms inside and outside of the tank wall, execpt for the back side, where the Block was the form.
thermal expansion and contraction is not going to be much of a problem with it....

It's coated with epoxy concrete sealer and epoxy paint.

I have a Local Restraunt that buys most of my extra veggies, and they say they will buy any extra fish, so at some point, i will see if i can sell a few at a time to them....

In the mean time, there is still a Lot of rigging up to be done yet........

Another Texas-sized setup.
Or the quarantine ward of the planned Real Big Setup, ground breaking in 2010?

Superb plan and work, look forward to seeing more. The Topsy Turvy Tomatoes are hilarious among that awesome infrastructure.
