Hi all, I am somewhat new to aquaponics. I have done aquariums in the past and wanted a water feature outside under my patio, I watched a few clips on water features then stumbled on to a Koi pond, I then watched about one hundred koi pond clips on you tube. Then I stumbled onto aquaponics. So now I have two IBCs cut back with a good system going on, it’s a split system with two 300ltr grow beds and a 700tr sump tank plus a 650ltr fish tank, plus I added a filter after watching the koi pond clips, I am raising Silver Perch and Barramundi, atm the Barramundi are indoors as its winter here,
Welcome to the forum David. Sounds like you're well on your way. There's a fellow in your part of the world that raises the same fish as you. Check him out on YouTube : RobBobs Backyard Farming Careful, I found myself trying to do all the stuff he does. He actually answers your comments.
Thanks Jeff, I have seen most of his clips already, that’s where I got the idea to add a filter after watching his clip on cleaning his grow beds! Last weekend I cleaned my sump tank with a broom to cut back on the algae a bit. So the nutrients can get to the plants better. I had to clean the filter twice this week instead of once every three months. Going to clean the fish tank down this weekend, while its still winter here.
