My plans for an Aquaponics system in my back yard are now well and truly underway. Just before Christmas I received a building permit to erect a 6 meter by 7 meter carport which I will turn into a greenhouse. The carport and Aquaponics kit have also been ordered and should both be in place by March 2013.
The Aquaponics kit is a “Homestead kit” with 6 grow beds which I am purchasing from Murray Hallam’s Practical Aquaponics based in Queensland.

The diagram below shows how my system will be set up.
Below is a photo of the ground that I have had levelled at the back of the house in readiness for the greenhouse/carport.
