Nice. Simplicity rules. A system like this outside the kitchen door with a few herbs in it would be cool.

That's fantastic, the blue drums are top value i reckon! The only problem with the stand might be if the shelf is MDF which gets pretty soggy if it gets a lot of water exposure, ply wood would be a better material

Good point Gazza...... We might have some form ply offcuts that will do nicely for that Nat, they last a bit better in the weather..

So how many fish/shrimp and what sort are they?

Nice system, thanks for sharing! Everytime I see one of these, I keep thinking I need to stop planning and get working.
