I finally finished building my trough system for my turtle tank. I'm thinking I'll be growing mostly leafy greens, and maybe a strawberry over the side - I have a window about 12" to the right of the tank, and a glass door about 24" to the left... maybe train it to go around the window?? My boys (7 & 4 years old) would love it if I can get them to berry!
I just tied the trough system into the existing filter. I got a great deal on a 150W MH light that I'll be installing over the tank, too - just have to wait for some help mounting it. Here are some pics:
Trough system (no pots, yet - will fill those when I get the light mounted)
Using a Fluval FX5 for filtration - these things have excellent mechanical and biological filtering capacity!
