Much Easier Than I Thought
I had been planning on building one for a couple years but just kept putting it off. I think the reason I did that was because I thought it was going to be harder than it was to build, it was surprisingly easy. The only part that I think may be a little intimidating is the bell siphon so for my first build I just purchased one already made.
Less Expensive Than I Thought
The total cost of putting this system together was just over $200 and it could have been cheaper had I went with a smaller pump, made my bell siphon from scratch and bought the lava rocks in bulk. Not crazy expensive for the amount of food that can be produced with a system like this.
