Building your own custom aquaponics fish tank is easy AND economical with our Do-It-Yourself packages!
Click here for a free download of our Fiberglass/Epoxy/Plywood Custom Tank manual and plans, which we used to sell for $29.99, now FREE!
Build your own custom shape and size aquaponics fish tanks and other types of tanks from inexpensive and locally available materials in the comfort of your garage or shop! The aquaponics fish tank manual specifies inexpensive “AC” exterior plywood, #2 treated construction grade lumber, galvanized drywall screws, and standard boat-type epoxy and fiberglass; no expensive marine plywood needed.
This aquaponics fish tank construction manual includes complete text and photos, with extensive captioning along with the photos to explain what’s going on. It is designed with the intention of empowering people with no fiberglass experience (but who have a basic level of woodworking experience) to be able to build strong and durable custom plywood/epoxy/fiberglass aquaponics fish tanks as well as other types of tanks. It’s the “you paid $30, here’s a great 5-course meal” version of the free manual below.
There was an incredible amount of work involved in photographing and writing this, and years more in gaining the experience. This aquaponics fish tank manual makes building tanks incredibly easy as compared to learning the hard way by oneself.
You will also receive, as a download, an architectural “D-size” CAD drawing sheet as a PDF file that you can send to a local print shop such as Office Max or Staples, to be printed. This sheet contains complete CAD plans for three different sizes of epoxy/plywood/fiberglass aquaponics fish tanks, with complete details showing construction methods, reinforcements, and dimensions.
Tim Mann, the writer of this aquaponics fish tank manual, has been building similar structures for nearly 40 years (boats), and those structures, notably a 56-foot long one (with sails) named Tropic Bird, which still works fine after 34 years in the water. A boat is just a tank designed to keep the water out instead of in. So, if you build your tank (or boat) the way described here, it will likely last for a very long time.
Can’t afford that custom aquaponics fish tank you want? Now you can! Can’t get a store-bought tank that meets your needs? Now you can build one that does!
