6 Tank Backyard Aquaculture

6 Tank Backyard Aquaculture

Paul Van der Werf
A 6 tank backyard RAS system. The tanks can be anything or any size backyard or very small scale RAS recirculating aquaculture system. The pipework is to scale and the size pumps will be approximately 20,000 liters per hour each. One pump is redundant and can be connected on a relay backup or flow/pressure switch should one fail. The fish tanks in the drawing are 1000 liters operating volume and the filter tanks are 350 liters each, including the sump tank. These tanks can be adjusted to suit your needs and the biomass/flow rate of the system. The plumbing system will work with most fish tanks up to 2000 liters each. You can reduce the numbers of tanks and maintain the same plumbing system. The same system can be connected to a separate recirculating hydroponic subsystem by diverting a small amount of the flow from the pumps to any method of hydroponics and return gravity line to the sump. Home made "aquaponics" Lots of flexibility and yours to use at your own risk. Commercial reproduction not permitted. Regards Paul #aquaculture #aquaponics #backyard_fish_farm #RAS
