Ok, thought I'd better post some pics for you lot.

 

Specs are

1000lt FT

Two 500lt ST â€“ interconnected

Two 300lt GB’s

50mm SLO to a 50mm CDM

50 x 25 x 50 T’s to 25mm valves on entry to GB’s with 25mm distribution square – 6.5mm holes every 50mm (Yet to be fitted)

40mm drain currently running Timed F&D

Centre lid drain with adjustable standpipe

Jebago (sp?) 3000lph 40W pump

Homemade venturi water return to FT

Expanded clay media

 

So far I have

Amm - 0.25

Nitirtes - 2.0

Nitrates - 80

 

Plants doing well, fish are on reduced feed until the nitrites drop off.

 

All in all i'm fairly happy with the system and where it's going.

If anyone is interested there is a piece of 13mm poly cut on an angle and this fits into the threaded end of the retic barb fitting, just go around the hardware store sticking bits in until you find the one that fits if you're unsure. I got the idea from https://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CB0QtwIwAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D0ZMjDgM3LaU&ei=X-HbVP0WgemYBaubgHg&usg=AFQjCNEhpIedMMxGRQvlNHk4TVJSSPn2Zg&sig2=Iqi6ejaP2ohuj32mR_ivAw&bvm=bv.85761416,d.dGYRob Bobs Backyard Aquaponics
