I am about to start my Aquaponics journey, which requires some aquaculture design. Admittingly I have no experience in aquaculture design but I read/watched a lot to come with a solution that I would like to ask communities opinion.
In order to increase the efficiency of swirl filter I am going to have an overflow from 4 , 2000 gallon the cement tanks into a up/under filter then to an another biofilter and then to the sump.
The Swirl Filter will be dealing with the heavily loaded eta 20 % flow from the fish tanks, while overflow from the tanks will be recycled once they are treated.
This is a simplified version of dual drain tank design with radial flow settler, and I cant see any drawbacks other then cleaning the up/under filter occasionally.
I would really like to hear the opinion of the community on this matter.
