Aquaponic Systems have multiple uses for an astounding array of round tanks.  They can be made from either Polyethylene, corrugated steel tank rings normally used for watering tanks for horses and cattle or just about anything you can come up with.

You can also purchase pre-built steel stock watering tanks that have the bottom already built in, but they present a problem in transportation as they are not collapsible.

The corrugated steel tanks can be used with a vinyl liner placed inside the steel frame. The steel rings will give a quicker solution to the construction of a tank, but being round, does not utilize available space economically.

Corrugated tanks come in sizes from 9′ to 30′ in diameter with side walls of 3′ to 6′ high. The vinyl liner should be handled very carefully when placing it inside the metal rings as there are often sharp edges which can cause minute holes in the liner which will haunt you until the end of time with unexplained water loss.

For those instances such as hobbyists, schools, and small commercial growers, corrugate steel tanks and Polyethylene tanks are a quick, economical way of constructing a tank and getting the show on the road.  Both come in a number of sizes as mentioned earlier for the steel tanks and as for Polyethylene tanks, the most common sizes are the 300, 500, 800, and 1200 gallon tanks and both may normally be found at Tractor Supply Corp.
