Over the past few weeks I have been able update our project costs, size our aquaponics system, and source all of the components. This particular system utilizes (3) 275 gallon IBC totes (two are cut in half) and runs on a 75 watt pump. It will feature (3) 100 gallon grow beds that are roughly 4'x4', a 275 gallon fish tank, and a sump container which houses the water pump. We could potentially build offshoots to the sump for fish fingerlings, duckweed trays (excellent fish food), or seedling pots. I'm hoping to source the IBCs from Ebay or Craigslist this week, and to purchase the plumbing components this weekend.
I generated a quick 3D model and we can definitely fit this within our 15'x15' greenhouse enclosure but it may be nice to have a bit more room. Lauren will be generating a 3d model based on our site survey and we will pass that along to Dan for solar analysis.
