Basement Aquaponics System!!!

In Aquaponics on January 25, 2011 at 1:44 am

After a lot of work and trial by fire, I have completed my Basement Aquaponic System. I used two 330 gallon totes, one for the fish tank, and the other for the two grow beds. The system is currently running on Gold Fish, but I will be introducing Tilapia as soon as possible. I designed the system to work in the same way as my InDorm System. To give support to the grow beds, the cage from the tote was cut to match the trays. The pump is a standard 320gph fountain pump, set on a timer to run every fifth hour during daylight hours. I used a four bulb, T12 lighting fixture to provide the light for the system. Three of the bulbs are 40watt Daylight bulbs, the fourth is a Plant/Aquarium bulb.
