I'm very concerned that e coli is being under evaluated as a potential containment. Repeatedly I'm finding references to the idea that e coli cannot exist in aquaponics, but the references are…Continue

I need a nitrogen addition to this system as an adjustment. The algae eater has outgrown the tank and I'm intent on switching from the 29 gallon( 110 l) tank's current occupants into the much, much…Continue

I got lucky today, gfi an extension protected the outlet gfi (which powers the back-up aerator), so that layout on a single outlet does work. I'm guessing from the flashing clocks that the power went out, and then came back on with lamps and growbed pumps both powered up at once, blowing the first breaker, but leaving the air pump running, working as a built in safety trip. The fish all seem to be fine. I drew out a line diagram of how it's laid out, and I've attached a photo, after…Continue

Hey Daniel, thanks for the comment on my blog, that link was supposed to go to HP's blog, not a FB link, and I have no idea why it was. Anyway, I edited the link to the right place, and tried it out, and now the update is just waiting for approval :)
So that is what I have been planing. If there is anything that sounds like it is not going to work or I should be thinking of something else let me know what you think.
Basically I will have either 2 systems duplicated for testing in the 24x64 greenhouse or combine the 2 fish tanks and run this system all together. Not sure what I should do. I want to do something real small at first so I can see what I need to do and learn before I go to anything else. So I may just fill up one tank 1/4 or 1/2 of the way and only use one raft setup. I will look at maybe getting a small micro system or family system plan set from the Friendly's to make sure that I get the correct info on a small setup before I go any further. I have been told that the gravel media grow beds will not work for a high density system but for some reason Growing Power uses this and they just keep on putting in worms to take care of the solids. I will look at swirl filters and other things down the road.
I have been reading and looking at hydroponics for many years and then started to read about aquaponics. There is no question that is what I need to do. In my research I looked at Growing power and Friendly Aquaponics the most and decided that I would build a 12x32 building. I wanted this to have storage and some processing capabilities along with maybe starting seeds and a fish hatchery. But thought that I would have the building and keep it open on what I would use it for.
I added a 16 foot wall to both ends of the utility room making a wall 64' long and ran out of money last year. This year I added 2 24' end walls and a 64' south facing wall. The Utility room wall is about 12' high and the south facing wall is only 10' high on the greenhouse. The roof system will be a rebar roof that I have been working on that will be slopped from the shed and go up another 2 or 3 feet then back to the 10 foot wall on the south side of the greenhouse. It will have post and beams in the greenhouse to support it as well as purlins. I will use double poly.
