  • Description
The Indy 23 is the ultimate home food-production system, with 23 sqm (250 sqf) of vegetable-growing area and the capacity to comfortably raise 50 kg (110 lbs) of fish per year.  

All types of plants are catered for in the design: fruiting crops such as tomatoes, egg plant and cucumbers flourish in the Grow Beds (media beds); leafy greens of every kind put on excellent growth in the Deep Water Culture (DWC) bed; and root vegetables like potatoes, carrots and sweet potatoes can be grown in the Wicking Bed.

The system's twin fish tanks let you grow two separate batches of fish at the same time, or have two lots of the same fish at different stages of growth, allowing for consistent supply for the table.

This design is the result of eight years of continuing research, trials and actual food production.  As our name “Practical Aquaponics” implies, we have actually built and run successful and productive Indy 23 systems for years.  This is a proven system, which has been taken up by builders and users all over the world.  It can be built by anyone with a moderate level of skill in basic construction, and with access to commonly-available materials.

The 38 full-colour A3 pages of the Plan Set include detailed instructions and complete lists of quantities needed. A plumbing layout is included, and every fitting needed is listed.

Each Plan Set has its own unique registration number, and is personally signed by Murray Hallam.  When you purchase the Plan Set, you also get free membership in our exclusive INDY 23 forum, where Indy 23 owners from around the globe share photos, experiences and tips.  A great place to meet fellow enthusiasts from around the world.
