The Hootie 2.0 at Iona Senior Services in NW DC

We just installed our new aquaponic system, The Hootie 2.0, at Iona Senior Services near American U. in NW DC.

The Hootie 2.0 can accommodate up to 8 medium size (.5lb) goldfish or other ornamentals. The fish waste will support a constant growth of herbs and several heads of leafy greens at a time.

The Hootie 2.0 features:

  • a 29 gallon fish tank;
  • a roll-out plant growbed for easy fishtank access;
  • hidden shelf space for electrical connections, an aerator pump, and supply storage;
  • adjustable height T5 floursecent light fixtures; and
  • an automatic bell-siphon drain in the growbed to increase system oxygenation and circulate water.

Thank You Ashlea Steiner at Iona Senior Services for the opportunity!

And Thank You John Favaloro at Avanti Woodworks for the great craftsmanship and creative problem-solving!
