The first system we constructed. The media bed is based upon a 12" deep 4'x8' 300 gallon reservoir. 500 GPH pump to wood & pond liner media bed filled with Hydroton.

Post Mortem. This was an IBC tote system. Additional wood and pond liner sump and media bed. ~12 cu foot Media beds (Hydroton and Expanded Shale Mix) *1/4 cut of IBC tote and . The system did ok in operation but never thrived. I think failure is from heat build up from shallow roof / lack of circulation as well as insufficient pump (degrading over time) and media beds.

This is a commercially purchased system from AP Source. The system we purchased had two media beds, two steel frames and one fish tank. We have modified the basic kit some.

Under Construction. This is a concept to create a seasonal aquaponics system within the chicken run. This project will reclaim the stock tank and wood from taking AP-1 system down.
