i can help with the amount of fish..
inches of fish allowablw should be figured by surface area. figuring one fish per 12"
so 72 x 18 = 1296 / 12 = 108 total inches of fish
so find out how big they are expected to get and that total in inches is your answer
you have 19 fish there so lets say hypothetically they are all the same size when full grown. lets say thats 5"
5 x 19 = 95" of fish when full grown thats in the green
95" of fish when you can have up to 108"
i hope this makes sense is easy to understand
