This is a large aquaponic unit that is designed for greenhouse, garage, and outdoor use. The frame is handmade out of cedar and treated to prevent water damage. The system is on 6 casters and can be easily moved by one person on a smooth and level surface. This is a large rig that is well suited for growing large crops on a patio or deck.
A great addition to any urban or backyard farm. Note: tank is not included. We believe the best way to learn aquaponics is to do it yourself.There are countless of aquaponic training courses that offer a weekend of on site tours or 8 weeks of online videos for upwards of a thousand dollars.

Internal storage shelf for nutrients and fish food. Aquaponic beginner guide manual included. We use locally-obtained moisture resistant cedar for our material, the colors of the build may vary from build to build, but the craftsmanship and quality is the same.
