The INDY 11-5 Aquaponics System will provide a family of 2 with every vegetable needed year round with proper planting schedule and good management. This design is the result of 8 years of continuing research, trials and actual food production. As our name “Practical Aquaponics” implies; we have actually built and run INDY systems. This is not just a fancy plan set, it is a proven system. This plan set like everything else we produce and recommend is the result of actual experience.
(Including a comprehensive bill of quantities)
The Plan Set includes:
The INDY 11-5 LONG version that is suitable if you have a long narrow space for example between your house and the yard fence. The plan set for the INDY11-5 had instructions and drawings for both versions.

A: The ideal footprint is Side-by-Side Version is 7.9m x 4.8m (25’11’ x 15’9?) with plenty of space all around The width can be squeezed down a bit, but it is ideal to build on that footprint. If possible a bit more length in the greenhouse would be ideal to allow space for seedling raising benches, garden tools and the like.
The Long version ideal footprint is 13.6m x 2.4m (44’6? x 8’0?) and same applies, it can be squeezed down a bit, but this is ideal leaving room to work around on all sides of the system.
