I always use bolt cutters on the CRW, makes things much easier. I use 10 squares (5') giving about 17" diameter. If this is not tall enough I let them fall over the top to the ground (that makes 9').
To hold them up I cut off the bottom wire leaving 6" spikes to go in the ground. If that isn't enough I use a stake or 2 pounded into the ground along side the cage and a zip tie to hold them together. Works for me.
I have about 70 cages. If they become bent or deformed too much (son hit them with the riding lawnmower) they become cuke cages or bean towers and make some more.
I never met a fish I didn't like.
