2-1\2 Barrel Aquaponics Systems
More plants and fish in less space

Teach the fundamentals of a fast growing agriculture opportunity with this simple, compact and efficient design. This complete aquaponics system fits in about 6 square feet of floor space but provides a lot of value.

The top half barrel is used both as a filtration system and a plant growbed. With almost 5 square feet of growing space you can plant and test a number of crops.

The two connected barrels hold almost 100 gallons of water. Both barrels can hold fish giving you the flexibility to separate sizes or species. This system will support 30 or more full size tilapia.

The system is self contained and needs no direct plumbing connections. The only electrical needs are for a small water pump used to recirculate the water. A heater can also be used for warm water fish like tilapia. Both can be run from a standard 120 volt outlet.


Complete 2-1⁄2 Barrel Aquaponics System
This system includes everything you need, barrels, pump, plumbing, and growing mediafor the growbed.
Because of size this would be shipped via freight on a pallet. No need for a loading dock though as barrels can easily be removed and carried off the pallet and truck. It can be picked up in Oshkosh, WI or arrangements made for delivery and setup. (Delivery and setup charges are based on mileage from Oshkosh.)
