I’m building an aquaponics system in the bird house. Here’s the progress so far.
Here’s some of the equipment that I’m using that you can get from Amazon. All have 4 Star customer reviews or better.
DuroLux T5 High Output Grow Light (4ft 4 lamps) $81.99
Eheim Jager 250W TruTemp Submersible Heater 17” $37.48
This tank heater is good for tanks up to 265 gallons. Eheim Jager has a great reputation.
Active Aqua Submersible Water Pump, 1000 GPH $51.99
I decided to go with a bit more pump than I need right now since I may expand the system in the future. Better to more pump than you need than not enough.
API MASTER TEST KIT (Aquarium Water Test Kit) $21.99 Excellent test kit. I’ll be able to use this for years before needing to replace any of the chemicals.
CPR Aquatic 4 Count Slip by Slip ABS Bulkheads for Aquarium Filters, 1-Inch $14.47
Four 1-inch bulkheads for less than $15 is a great deal. Similar bulkheads go for $8.00 EACH at Tractor Supply. 2 inch PVC pipe fits snugly over the top of these making them perfect for standpipes.
Just about everything else for the system I got at Home Depot.
