My next endeavour.

This all started in JULY when I bought a 55g with a beat up rena filstar XP2 (ended up needing an impeller and all new media).

I built a stand out of solid pine. And when I say built, I mean I purchased 2x10s and ripped them down to 2x4s and ran them through a jointer to get nice sharp corners.




Now I'm developing my nitrate removal via aquaponics and by use of a sump. In addition to reduced water changes, I expect to have a slightly reduced grocery bill. We'll see. I've attached my concept let me know what you guys think!

Well it has taken forever, but I finally have substantial progress on this project. I have the shelves, sump, grow bed, and my siphon/return plumbing. Now all I need is a float switch to maintain the tank level, a few valves, bell siphon hardware and I'll be ready for plants!
