I am trying to start a build. I cant decide if i want to do a 55gal barrel or a 275 gallon ibc tote for fish tank. I have a pond in my town that is full of bluegill, that anyone is allowed to fish for free. they are bread feed so they are use to eating floating food. If you have any suggestion it would be great. Its nice a warm here for 8 mos so i will set up outside. I have a raised garden now that me and my son started with old pallets. recycling is better then buying.

    Ok 2 Beds, a 55 gallon drum cut in half. A top drum to pump water in and a flood drum under, it will feed into beds and a bellciphon to drain water out. Still need to figure out a pump.

      Welcome to the Forum 81 cuttin, I'd like to know more about those IBC's - what were they used for previously? I'd like to figure out a way to bring one back if I can ;)
      I like the way this guy set up his IBC, but I would add a few barrels for more GB space and a swirl filter!

      Clik ;)
