Scott is giving away his aquaponic system. If you are interested in it, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be put in contact with him to arrange the transfer.
The system includes an IBC fish tank, a full IBC sump tank, a 55-gal
settling filter, 3 half-IBC grow beds and 4 half-barrel grow beds.
Here is the work required to operate the system:
Daily (about 10 min but only during the growing season): feed fish, general upkeep of plants, check the water flow and unclog anything as needed. Sometimes harvest daily, sometimes less frequently.
Weekly (about 20 minutes):
Discharge solids from settling tank (I discharge to my lawn but could use as fertilizer in the garden), check and adjust water chemistry (more on this below), check water flow, and unclog anything as needed.
