Convert rain barrels to fish tanks for aquaponics

Featured

Step 10: Maintain the system

At this time, we have been running the system for over 2 weeks.  The 5 fish are still alive.  When it rains we drain off water into the garden.  The pump has needed to be wiped clean a few times.  We will have to add a coarse pre-filter, like a bucket with holes.

I have to add a section of plants to filter the water.

The next step is a fish autopsy.  It shows why one fish with a stuck hook died.
