The Countdown Plan
I don't want to buy this entire aquaponics system in one go.
[Actually, I do, but other people wouldn't like it. And I love them...]
Since we get paid every two weeks, here is my plan for the weeks leading up to January, when I plan to buy the tilapia. I'm including stuff I did in the past month as well (I already have a water pump, air pumps, and bubblers).
10/15 - Purchase the Murray Hallam DVDs ($65 via The Aquaponics Source)
10/29 - Purchase the fish tank and grow bed (~$150 from Southern States)
11/12 - Purchase the 2'x4' heavy duty shelving (~$80 from Home Depot)
11/26 - Purchase the gravel ($50) and bell siphon bits ($10)
[Start seedlings, focusing on lettuce and herbs]
12/10 - Purchase the grow lights ($128)
12/24 - Purchase bio-activation stuff and accessories ($60)
01/07 - Obtain permits and buy tilapia ($22.50 for permits, $114 for White Brook Farms tilapia fry)
