Into my new hydroponics set up! Last week we decided not to be lazy bums and got out and set up our hydroponics right next to our aquaponics. My Fiance bought the black tub (a mixing tub) and the styrofoam from a big box store.
The outlet from the aquaponics was moved from the main bed and into the new setup. The water now moves from the fish tub into the hydroponics. Then the extra water from the hydroponic overflows into the main bed which gets filtered before being released back into the fish tub.

I hope that the area that the hydroponics is will be shady and cool enough for the lettuce. I'll monitor it and I might need to put up some shade cloth.
