    For right now it is just going into the woods......we are on 120 acres. My future plans are to use it on the garden which will be about 20' from the fish house. The current drain pvc runs right beside the garden area to the edge of the woods so I just need to work out how I will disperse it on the garden.

    They are beautiful fish! Can't wait to see what their fry will look like as they get bigger.

    That's smart, thanks for the info. I think I've been over complicating it..

    What's the volume per day? Would seem the trickiest would be the volume then keeping pressure.

    Im trying to plan using my waste waste (ro and wc and rain). I'd like to get it pumped into a raised tote and gravity fed to soaker lines or the sprinkler system. I'm on a much smaller scale though, itd be tough I think to displace a big Discus operation like that, I'd imagine you'd need to farm all that land to match the water volume. (Win-win)
