Product Details

The Indy 11.5 is the half-size 'little brother' of the Indy 23 system, so it's designed to be a powerhouse of food production for two people.

  • 11.5 sqm (~123 sqft) of growing area
    • Two media beds, each 2.4 m x 1.2 m (8' x 4')
    • One raft bed, 2.4 m x 1.2 m (8' x 4')
    • One wicking bed, 2.4 m x 1.2 m (8' x 4')
  • Comfortably raise 25 kg (55 Lb) of fish per year
    • One fish tank, 1000 L (~260 Gal)

Grow just about any type of plants - the inclusion of media beds, raft bed, and wicking bed lets you grow a huge range of crop types.

This design is the result of nearly a decade of continuing research, trials and actual food production.  As our name 'Practical Aquaponics' implies, we have actually built and successfully run productive Indy systems for years.

Building the Indy 11.5 is fairly straightforward.  Anyone familiar with basic tools and techniques - or willing to have a go! - will be able to build this system.  And the construction uses mostly commonly-available materials, so you don't need a specialist supplier.

This revised Indy 11.5 Plan Set gives you comprehensive step-by-step instructions for building the system.

  • Detailed how-to for each stage of construction
  • Lists of materials and quantities needed
  • Full-colour photos and diagram sheets
  • Plumbing layouts
  • Construction tips
  • Tips for cycling and running the system once built

As well as the written instructions, the Plan set also has 9 full-colour A3 sheets devoted solely to detailed diagrams of the system, and includes two different layout possibilities, one with the beds side by side, and one with the beds in a line to fit narrower spaces.

The large (A3), spiral-bound pages make it easy to open the book flat on a work surface so you can check where you're up to as you build.

Each Plan Set has its own unique registration number, and is personally signed by Murray Hallam.

If you're committed to feeding yourself from your own back yard, the Indy 11.5 Aquaponics System is for you!  This Plan Set will help you get there.

If you want to save yourself the running around getting the construction materials, we have the answer!  Get our Indy 11.5 Flat Pack, which contains all the construction materials needed to build the system (excluding the IBCs/Totes and barrels), even down to the screws, glue and thread tape!  And we can send it just about anywhere in the world.
