Aquarium system, Building Shelves 2

So how does the Aquaponics Aquarium shelf lifting saga end?

Ahh ratchet strap

Ah the magic tool, the ratchet strap! What the strap around the aquarium wasn’t foreshadowing enough? 🙂
So as you might imagine this process took a few minutes and several strap re-sets.

Just had to find a joist in the ceiling to install a big hook and use that to hoist the shelves up via ratchet strap. Then of course find things to pile up to support the shelves while re-setting the strap since you can only ratchet so much before it fills up with strap.

This set of aquaponics aquarium shelving took more than two sets of these 2×4 shelf brackets since I used so many shelves.

I like these shelves so much I installed some in the kitchen as well as the garage and several sets in the shed and even some outdoors.

Not Just Aquaponics or Aquarium Shelving anymore. Anyway, I got the shelves up and moved my stuff back into the “spare room” then got to hook up the aquarium aquaponics system. Even with pre-washed pre-cycled gravel, the water goes cloudy for a few days when you set up a new system, just no way around it I guess. The hole in the aquarium was too small to keep up with the little pump so I added a no holes overflow in addition to the original venturi drain. I will have to show more about no holes overflows in future installments about the Aquarium Aquaponics system but for not let me just say, I don’t recommend them.
