Post subject:  Tanks Available

I now have a range of tanks available for anyone who may be interested. Presently only available in Western Australia, hopefully they will soon be available Australia wide.

Sorry to those overseas.... :?

They are made from food safe, UV stabilized, HDPE plastic, the same material used in rainwater tank. They are available in a range of standard poly tank colours, though at the moment I have beige in stock, other colours may take a couple of weeks to manufacture.

Please contact us for pricing details on (08) 9414 9334 or via email,

Do they stack for transport EB???? What do they weigh??

Which ones Rup?

I'll have to try weighing them.

They all stack but the 3000L ones would probably be a little difficult to transport large distances as they are huge.

After seeing the system you setup, a set of those would be brilliant.... of course as soon as the area I have in mind is ready. I am particularly interested in those grow beds.

I have started my list...

You have done a great job in organizing and making these tanks available. You just need to stockpile PVC pipes and fittings, seeds and grow media and you'll be the 'one stop aquaponic shop'. Good work....

Getting there Tim, closer than you might think.

Just ordered about 800 PVC fittings and over 200m of pipe tonight... :)

Hmm... spooky.

On a related note, can you divulge your Hydroton supplier or a price you could supply it for? I assume you have a source seeing as though that trailer load you had would have set you back a pretty penny buying retail...

I have quit trying to get dad to make some...
