Getting ready to set up my 2nd aquaponic system

I have purchased a 100 Gallon rubbermaid stock tank and 5 buckets with net pot lids. I am going to stock the pond with about 10-15 Blue tilapia and be growing tomato plants in my basement.  I am excited about this new system, and I will post further updates.

The cfl grow lights I definitely recommend.  I got this 125w cfl grow light that is about 45$ off of amazon. I definitely recommend this light if your'e looking for a grow light that is power conscious and makes the plants grow well

I am trying to keep it under 1875w which is 15 amps for my 2 systems.  That is my max amount of electricity i am willing to put into this. I am using 125w cfl grow lights, not those 1000w hps grow lights which would make my electricity bill explode.

Hey Max. I just watched your last video... Nice looking setup. Have you been keeping track of your electric bill? I'm just kind of curious as I'm finding that this hobby is a bit pricey. I look forward seeing your next setup.
