Gigantic Mutant Monster Tilapia!

I got my fish today, and ran into an uh-oh.

I was planning on keeping 20 finger-sized tilapia in my (well cycled) 50 gallon indoor aquarium while building for the barrelponics-mutant-system to cycle.

Here is the Uh-oh.
Instead of 20 small tilapia, I got...
10 finger sized tilapia
5 sort-of-inbetweens
5 bigger than my hand almost-ready-to-harvest-HUGE fish

My 50 gallon tank is very very very crowded.

Tonight I am going to work on chopping up some barrels and putting together a filter for the barrelponics system to transfer the big fish into it.

Wish me luck!
