Winter Indoor Aquaponics System

Winter Indoor Aquaponics System

I live in Northern Virginia, so when it starts to freeze outside, I move my fish to my winter garage aquaponics system.  I can do 3 rafts which is about 90 lettuce plants. I don’t heat the garage and it stays above freezing because some heat escapes from my house. The reflective mylar foil sheets reflect the light and get it bouncing all over the plants.

Indoor aquaponics set up. Its about 6 feet long and 4 feet wide not including the fish tank.
Fish Tank. This is a 150 gallon cattle watering tank you can get at farm supply stores
