We are new to growing Tilapia in enclosed fish tanks (3500 gal) and are having trouble finding good numbers on what we should be running for ammonia, nitrite and CO2. What are maxima and what would be typical for a recirculating system with drum filter following by biofilter that is fully functioning at equilibrium. DO is 4-6, temp 78-80F and pH 7.3 (controlled with bicarbonate).
