A lot of perch and I put in 200 catfish before the flood. I don't know what I have left. In another tank a few years ago I put in 5 blue cats and goldfish and minnows. I now have 5 big blues and a whole lot of little catfish. How stable will it be? We shall find out soon if I don't wreck it pulling it to the tank.

I'm hoping to do something similar one of these days. I'm curious to see how you secure it. I've pretty much decided to put in some galvanized pipe into the floor of the pond at the outside corners to hold it in place.

55 gal plastic barrels. Got it into the pond. I used 6 barrels but it looks like 4 would have worked. Since this is not a "constant level" tank I am going to cable it to the bank so I can move it down when the water drops. Too windy today to get it to where I want to secure it.
