Has anyone ever used the 5 gal reusable bottles from Primo water for a system? They have a list of the process they use to filter on the website. They also have a water quality report. These are the…Continue

"Hey Marc,  I am trying to grow kale as well, but my system can't seem to sustain it.  Basil, swiss chard, tomatoes (veg not fruit yet), and lettuce all grow fine.  Kale and spinach are a no go... how is yours growing?"

System Cycled?

I have been cycling for some time now (at least 3-4 weeks) and I was testing twice a day. Some days I had some exceptions where I was not as diligent with my testing, but for the most part I was. About 5 days ago I started to see small amounts of nitrate around 5ppm and I continued dosing ammonia trying to follow Sylvia's book. Now I add ammonia in the morning (enough for about 2ppm) and I test around 10-12 hours later and find no reading of ammonia, nitrites or nitrates. This has been the case…See More

Just thought people might like to see that netflix has this show called TED Talks. I had never heard of it until yesterday but there is an interesting series called Chew On This. I recommend that anyone doing aquaponics sees this series because it has a lot to do with aquaponics indirectly. Personally, this series has further inspired me to hopefully grow into a large-scale or even commercial aquaponics system one day. The series shows how others around the world are using the same ideas to…See More

Apartment aquaponics

"Thanks a lot. I actually have the drain pipe made with several small holes and it opens at the opposite end of the tank. I just thought that more air would be needed then the drain every few minutes. I also moved the heater so that the drain pipe…"

Apartment aquaponics

"not bad, not bad,  you could probably eliminate the airstone that you have in the tank by raising the bell siphon pipe return so that it creates an "air stone" effect by shooting the water back into the fish tank to create a turbulent…"
