I put the finishing touches on this indoor system recently. The fish tank has cichlids and pictus catfish and the plants are ornamentals that were on sale for being near death (also a pineapple top). The plants are doing way better than their dirt brethren and the fish seem happy (there is a backup filter as well). Grow bed medium is red lava rock. The light fixture is four 2 ft strips of tri-color LEDs with remote control (similar to this, but about half the price). Still needs something on the back wall, but the sun isn't too big a problem right now.

Thanks. It's nice to have a system that is "low stakes", as I'm not producing anything with it (except a little oxygen).

My son can't resist playing with the rocks and I found a couple on the kitchen counter last night. A few minutes after I replaced them, I hear a little scream from the kitchen. My wife had found a red wiggler where the rocks had been. :twisted:

Looks good Jake
Cichlid love red wigglers.
I've started 2 vermicompost bins to raise worms as supplemental fish food.

Very neat looking system! I like the stand.

My house plants actually do better then my veggies in my indoor system. I may just end up growing all ornamental plants like that too.
