Placing iron rod at all the edges and casting the base. It is quite important to tie a V- shape iron rod and cast all the edges to prevent water from exerting pressure on those edges.

Leveling of the floor and ramming it. It is very important to ram the floor especially the Parts closed to the walls to make it firm after casting to prevent it from caving in due to water pressure.

It is true the price of fish feed has gone up, also the price of 1kg fish has increased from N500 to N650- N700, so the price of fish balance the increase in the cost of feed which means the biz is still profitable. You can also pelette your own feed in other to reduce cost spent on feeds.
