A piece of history
The first time an IBC tote was used to build an aquaponics system was in the early 2000, in Australia as it appears. Australia is extremely developed in aquaponics farming and many Australians have their own system in the garden. The resilience coupled with the ''grow your own'' movement is growing around the world. So why not you? Read on and learn how I got bittne by the bug :)
Where to buy an IBC tote in Dubai?
The hunt began during the end of the summer 2016. It was hot and humid. Life as you know it takes a whole new meaning. But I needed to find my fish tank, so I first started to look on-line... Big mistake! Dubai has a very poor on-line database of shops and those DIY or materials shops, actually are not shops, they are warehouses and sell only to construction sites or by the ton or by the hundreds... In the process I found many interesting shops and places where I could get further needed equipment and tools.
So I finally found a few actually, on a famous classified website, used but clean. You want them food grade as in, used to transport nothing but organic/food related materials.
