I have a 600L Fish Tank and 600L of grow beds.....am I going to have trouble keeping my system stable....?
There is a lot of talk about a 1000L system....for a minimum.....
but others have a smaller system...???

That is fine to get started.
1000 ltrs is just a good place to be but what you have will be fine.

thank you, Murray..
I have 2 separate 600L FT's and 600L Gb's.
I didnt have the room for a 1000L tank....it's physically too large for my area......
But I can fit 2 systems in the area....(long but not wide)....
I believe I understand that with more mass a typical system will take longer to swing and it's prob. easier to keep the levels within range.
Could I not connect the two FT's together with a pipe ....making them common and getting the mass I need....each FT would have a separate pump for the 2 seperate grow beds......

You could do that. We often join sumps together with a balancing pipe and it works well.
