Creating a very cheap aquaponics system of the floating raft style.  The raft, probably of styrofoam with cutouts for net pots is not shown since this is a brainstorming idea. 
Lots of potential for the person on a tight budget but with a couple of buckets and an air pump.  This would be quite a cheap raft system if you wanted to try that style for long rooted plants.

The Aqualibrium is a KickStart project, if you are interested, take a look at their offer, the unit is slated to sell about 300.00 without growing media.  Add 30 to that for the media, and then there is shipping. Good looking, but aren't the beneficial bacteria photo phobic so the plastic might not be best done in clear for the growing areas..
