HI Don!

I'm trying to get into aquaponics. If  you're looking into giving the IBC's away, I'd love to come pick them up! Let me know when you are available.

If anyone is interested I have two (275 gal.) IBC's to give away just pick them up. They are cut for FT and GB one has a bazillion holes in it. It was used as a screen for washing gravel. If you are interested let me know I am in the northwest valley near 67th ave and Happeyvalley Rd.

Now taking it down for the winter, this system that produced 210 pounds of food in 7 months. Also the foliage extending up over the tank on the left hand side is a luffa that trailed out of the tank, climbed up and took over that tree. It produced about 40 pounds of fruit before it was done.

Just some cool pics from AGS-166 aquaponics at Mesa Community College (Mesa Az).  P.S. We have been asked if we give tours? The answer is yes. Just inbox me.
