ready to piece together a SMALL system

Posted on November 29, 2013 at 9:23pm 6 Comments

I have been wanting to start an aquaponics system for over a year now, but we are very limited financially. Ideally, I would like to put an IBC tote system in my hubby's greenhouse ;)
But for now, I have to start with a small indoor system. I bought a used 20 gallon tank with a stand for $25. I will be using goldfish in this tank. I have been having difficulty finding a properly sized Food Grade container for the growbed that is not going to cost an arm and a leg.

New here.

We are excited about Aquaponics.  My husband Ron is the farmer of the family.  He believes that everyone should know how to grow their own food (at least some vegetables).  Adding the benefit of harvesting our own fish just blows our minds.

We live in the Florida Panhandle.  I am very disappointed that we won't be able to grow talapia.  There are not many types of fish that I care for (catfish is one).  I guess I will have to learn to like something else.  I'll try. :)

Welcome Deanna!


Thanks for joining the Aquaponic Gardening community!  I hope you find it a fun place to explore aquaponics.  There is a real blend of experienced and new aquapons in this community, so please don’t hesitate to get in there and start asking questions.  Everyone is quite happy to help out new members--no question is too basic. 


A great place to start is to read the “How to Use This Site” link on the upper right corner, “Start Here” section of the Home page.  You might also find the “Aquaponic Gardening Rules of Thumb” guidelines helpful.


Please participate and check in with us every day!  We are constantly posting news about aquaponics and the good food movement.


Thanks again for joining us, and I look forward to getting to know you.
