I am trying to start up an extremely small aquaculture and hydroponics program for 5th graders who excell in science and math. I am using my personal materials (75 gal.tank) until I can get more money and space. What is a good biofilter to purchase or could I make one using an old tank? I was planing on using tilapia is there any problem with them or should I try another species? What do I need for basic setup to get started(Materials, Funds)? We are located about 10 min. west of Corning, NY. Any help would be appreciated thank you, Matt Heywood
