Just curious, respond when your bored and have time ;)
These systems can be made any size you need. Weight is the enemy of the Skoolie though with aquaponics. Both gravel and water are very heavy. The basic Barrel-Ponics system weighs over 800lbs when ask said and done. It has a 50 gallon fish tank and about 10 sq. ft. of planting space. Both the Barrel-Ponics system and the My Aqua Farm system occupy about the space of a sheet of plywood. The My Aqua Farm, however, has 16 square. ft. growbed and 168 gallon fish tank and takes less power but over three times the weight. I will be releasing a half size system soon as well as one about double the size.
