Welcome to the JCMHS Aquaponics Team page.  Our plan is to learn how to build and operate an aquaponics system.  On this page, we will post links to informative websites and maintain a list of Youtube videos.  I strongly recommend that you watch a few of the Youtubes to get a good understanding of aquaponics and how to get started.  If you want to get more information about our team or want to support our efforts, please email me at wburke@jchs.com.

The Build:  Watch this to see how to plumb a fish tank.

IBC Tote build: Start at 15 minute mark.
