Veggies and Fish are Growing in the Quail House!
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, and all ship free with Amazon Prime.
Rubbermaid 100 Gallon Stock Tank $155.00
Practically indestructible and the perfect size for my system. If you have a Tractor Supply near you, you can get these there much cheaper than at Amazon. I added the link so you can see the description, dimensions, etc.
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 have 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, Lowes or Ace Hardware.
