Aquaponics 2

The little hoop house is finished.
I love the rusty old sheet metal at the bottom -- once part of the roof on one of my father's outbuildings.
Since the old bath tubs are metal, I wrapped the bottom one--the fish tank--with recycled fiberglass insulation and some polyethylene. The tank cover is plywood from the floor of our old mobile home.
The top tub is the grow bed.
I'll be purchasing a small pond pump this weekend on my way to work, and hopefully will begin working on the fill-drain cycle on Monday.
