Aquaponic Gardening

A Community and Forum For Aquaponic Gardeners

I have a kidney shaped pond, 8'x4'x28", and a plastic open tank, 36"x40"x18". How do I get started with

an Aquaponic system with what I have? Where can i get edible fingerlings? I live in San Bernardino CA.

fill the pond with water and set the open tank up on a platform and plumb it with a stand pipe drain and a gravel guard, then fill it with pH inert gravel.  Hook up a pump and pump the water up to the gravel bed and have the gravel bed drain back to the pond.

for more details and tips here is a basic media bed system design blog

Research biofilter cycling or fishless cycling

go to the California group and see if anyone else in CA can help you out with fingerling sources.
