Ahhh, I get it, it's all about a new facility for the "Condello Institute for the Creation of Ludicrously Proportioned Blue Gills."

Tell us more about the garage. Do you mean 4,800 over two floors?

Wow, that is truly spectacular. Congratulations, it's always great to see a dream come together, whether a dream of your own, or that of a friend. I guess it's a little old fashioned, but I still believe that hard work and perseverance will get you somewhere in life. It's obvious that you're well accquainted with both of those traits. Enjoy!!

Bruce,

Impressive! Not sure how, but I missed this thread earlier.

So what kind of fish system are you going to put in, or is that proprietary info at the moment? If so, not a problem. I would strongly encourage a RAS that is modular that you can add on to as you expand. I'm loving the control an indoor system gives me and hope to add a pole barn next year.

I just finished building my second RBC and this time I installed it into a tank by itself to keep it separate from the fish tank. This keeps more of the particulates out that can reduce the efficiency of the filter. And of course it won't be taking up space in the fish tank. Both RBC's will be in tanks by themselves now. I also will have a center drain that is hopefully self cleaning that runs directly into the clarifier tank.

I'm moving my first system into a new larger basement room and adding a second one. Preparation of the room as in epoxying the floor, different lighting, all GFI outlets, refinishing the tanks, and building the RBC has kicked my butt! Either I'm getting older or I'm in over my head! I still haven't started cycling the second tank with fish in floating cages waiting to be brought in.

Wish I could post pics but after 3 weeks my computer is still in the shop!

Cecil, the plan is to pay you to come to Nebraska and consult with me on how to set up the fish culture rooms. Looks like a good place to play, doesn't it?

Cecil, see if you can swing by there on the way back from BPS. 8 hr 45 minute trip from there to your house. Straight shot on 80.

Bruce,

No need to pay me. Your company and talking fish is enough for me. Maybe Cody can tag along again as he's always a wealth of info too. And or Esshup and we can make it one big fish discussion!

Actually I may not be ready to be a consultant yet. I'm still experimenting and it may be possible the RBC is not the best biofilter. They are also a PITA to build! Brier send me plans for a biofilter that uses a blower and plastic media and has more surface area than my RBC's. A heck of a lot easier to build, and I am going to try it for another system to compare.

I've contacted Steve VanGorder to be a consultant for me possibly as soon as this winter. I haven't heard back but the guy is very busy. I have a handle on how I want to set up the pole barn but know this guy can help me plan it in the most efficient way possible.

Unfortunately I can't, although I've visited Bruce before with Bill Cody. I need to get back as one of my wholesale customers just informed me a couple of his customers are driving him crazy to get their fish back even though I haven't had them very long.

Bruce,

What kind of alkalinity and PH does that limestone quarry have?

I haven't tested either. I wonder if our friend Dr. Perca would run a quick analysis for us...
