Aquaponics at the Lyons Farmette

Posted on March 1, 2011 at 7:20pm 4 Comments

The Lyons Farmette - Aquaponics 


These are photos of our first media based aquaponics system. The fish tank is 250 gallon capacity and we have filled it to around 200 gallons. There is approximately 35 square feet of grow space not including the new vertical towers we just added in. This system is about a year old, but we have made many changes in the past few weeks.

How is the new system going?  Are you guys going to need some help digging over the weekend.  I can dig while you're in classes if you need.

Heck yeah, what a sweet video.  They have a huge setup. Checked my levels last night and my PH and ammonia are pretty high.  Guess I urinated a little too much in my tank.

Chives are thriving and got some lettuce going.

Hey Boom Boom! 

I got my system started today.  Just need to fix my pump!  It is a submersible and when it's not submersed it leaks. Who knew?  Nothing a little RTV wont fix.  Decided to use gravel as my grow medium.  I'll take some pictures when I get it up and running.  I bet it's the smallest system on here.

Welcome Garrison,

Thanks for joining the Aquaponic Gardening community!  I hope you find it a fun place to explore aquaponics.  There is a real blend of experienced and new aquapons in this community, so please don’t hesitate to get in there and start asking questions.  Everyone is quite happy to help out new members – no question is too basic.  

A great place to start is to read the “How to Use This Site” link on the upper right corner, “Start Here” section of the Main page.  You might also find the “Aquaponic Gardening Rules of Thumb” guidelines helpful.  And you might want to join the Colorado Aquapons group (see the Group tab above).

Please participate and check in with us every day!  We are constantly posting news about aquaponics and the good food movement.

Thanks again for joining us, and I look forward to getting to meeting you Wednesday.
