Totem Soup Science - Aquaponics Inventions

Working on a pump for a 10-20 gallon grow top tank. Basically the hood/light will have a planter built in (still designing that bit). However the water has to get pumped up to the grow bed. I had a ton of spare parts sitting around from old broken filters and this is what I came up with:

I'm likely putting this on a 15 minute on/off timer to fill and drain the grow bed. The hose has 2 valves for flow control, an easy disconnect, and a spray bar, all cannibalized from a couple dead canister filters:

That's it for now. Stay tuned for more project updates!
