    So much to learn, where to start? Filter media?

    Wow I have lots to. Learn. We have experience with hydroponics and actually produce about 300 heads of lettuce a month.

    We want a practice aquaponic system with plans to enlarge it once we have the practice out of the way.

    I have 2 150 gallon tanks I intend to use as fish tanks. I want to start with 1 but build my swirl separator and bio filter large enough to use later when I add the second. I was thinking of using 55 gallon or 35 gallon drums for the bio and swirl. What I don't know is what media I should use in the filter? I was thinking about bio balls and floor scrubber filters. I am however trying to keep this cheap. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Back to this tanks are up and supporting 10 goldfish each. Trying to get filtration and grow beds attached. Planning a sediment filter, swirl filter and a bio filter before returning to the grow beds.
