This is my compact 55 gallon barrelponics. There are 3 upright barrels for fish tanks, 3 halved barrels for 6 grow beds, and one barrel for the sump.

Conrad,

This system will only run until November or so.  I do not have the funds/space to run this over-winter.  I'm planning to finish out some transplants and raise fall crops.  I'm using bait minnows for fish, so that I can simply use the bait minnows for ice fishing once the growing season is over.

Robert, How do you intend to heat the IBC green house?

@ Conrad 
Thanks!  I spent a few weeks going through the designs in my head to make sure I could fit it in my tiny back yard.

Robert, I love the neatness of your system. I hope it works well for you.

I have since replaced the 2" PVC drains to 4" drain tile to handle the overflow from all 3 growbeds at once.
