After about a month of on and off development I am proud to say that
I finished the main building phase of the first of two aquaponics setups and here are some pics for reference.
NEXT STEPS: Get the water in a good condition for the fish, get some grow lights, start growing veggies for winter salads and soups.
Stand Pipe, Bell siphon, and media guard
Handy dandy saw action and a 4in hole saw to make the top. The syste is draining on media bed in this pic
You can see the pebble dust has settled and my air stone in this pic
Thanks for looking,
