We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This thing allows you to use an inexpensive 10 gallon fish tank for an experimental aquaponics growing system.
The goal is to create equilibrium between the fish, the plants, and the water. You feed the fish, the fish feed the plants and the plants clean the water, then you eat the fish and plants. That is the theory. We are testing it now.
I added 2 new grow pot holders using my anti warp panels that should be a lot easier to print.
I added a new grow pot holder with a bigger hatch, This is much better for servicing your fish. Look for v3 parts.
I've attached a PDF file with instructions to help build your aquaponics system. This is a fun and easy project. So far I have been successful growing the fish and the plants.
This is an experimental system so please have fun and be safe and let me know how your garden does.
This was printed on an 8 x 10 inch build platform.
These parts fit a 10 Gallon Standard Aquarium (20L x 10Â¼W x 12 1/2H)
