This one is small, but functional. I'm currently running 6 small sunfish fingerlings in it, and they will be moved into a bigger system as they grow. It has about 35 gallons (132 L) in it. I had a white barrel, so I clad it in old fence boards with a layer of landscape fabric underneath to prevent uv damage.

The peppers in this system are struggling. I usually keep peppers in wicking buckets year round, and those are okay. But these ones are somewhat yellow, and not really pushing new growth. This is our first heat wave, so maybe the water isn't warm enough to trigger growth yet...
