15’ above ground swimming pool.

I posted this somewhere else on this site but it never showed up. I guess it wasn’t approved. Anyway I want to start an aquaponic system and I have a 15’ Intex above ground pool that I am planning to use as a fish (catfish) tank. Would the catfish fins be a puncture risk to the vinyl? How much grow bed area would I need for a good balance with this tank? Any thoughts as to the pros and cons of using a vinyl pool for a fish tank?See More
