Also the more vascular plants that are in the pond the less nutrients are available for Phytoplankton and FA to grow. They still have livestock grazing on the ground upstream?

A few, I would say my neighbor is very respectful of our shared water. He does not over graze, and sells more hay than his cows eat.

I do have too many lilies, that needs to change next year.

Well with all the new fish in the tanks, I figured I had better get out in front of the poo load coming. The swirl filter is now 32 inches in diameter and over 100 gallons in volume. The swirl filter is settling out a lot more poo and very little waist is making it to the final filter. The Bio-reactor tank is also larger now, it is now 28 inches in diameter. I had 6.5 cubic feet of bio balls in the system and now, I can use closer to 10 cubic feet of bio ball protecting my system to over 300 pounds of fish eating well!

When I get back I will empty the swirl filter. I'll record it. I will say it is impressive flushing the larger tank.

Another vote "FOR," yes!

The Tilapia are for algae control and fish tacos. We are going to have a lot of Tacos this year!

You bet. When I get were I am going, I'll add it to this thread. In the meantime, anyone who has a good fish taco recipe feel free to post it!

Fish tacos are awesome!
