My husband and I have been hashing some ideas around and would like some extra input. Really would love to know if ANYONE out there has ever tried this.
Our idea is to make a mass rocket heater as the side wall to an aquaponics tank that will be housed in a green house.
We plan on making the whole system ourselves. we wanted to do a rocket mass stove with a "bench" and have the side of the bench as the side wall to
a custom made "fish tank" coated in plaster on the inside. We plan on raising Tilapia and they do best at 82-86 degrees F, they can die at a water temp of 55 degrees.
we live in growing zone 8b and and feel that this system might work for the mild winter months that we have.
 
my overalls have superpowers - they repel people who think fashion is important. Tiny ad:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
