There are dozens of ways to do this outside. Spend some time on youtube. I saw one nice pond with raised grow beds from Austraila that was really done well and rather inexpensive.
you can actually do it outside, as long as you keep your tanks heated. I saw a video on youtube, everything was covered in snow, but he still had growth.

Is that Basil too? Nice work! Are you supplementing ferts too? I am going to start a huge operation in the springtime with some Koi as the only fert source other than the food I feed them.

Thanks for the head up. I was planning to make the hole smaller than the fitting for a tight fit. So a 3/4 hole with a 3/4 fitting would be fine?

Nice set up. I love the concrete tubs for grow containers I have had one in almost continous use for growing baby lettuce for 5 years. If the white flies are still a problem try yellow sticky paper.
