Hi everyone, this guy was looking pretty sad for a couple days. I took him out and found this weird abscess around the anus. I killed him and took some pictures. Anyone ever seen anything like…Continue

It seems to me that pH moderation is constantly coming up as a subject in just about every discussion. Because it's such an important detail of all aquaponic systems, I thought that I'd start a…Continue

Well, I've been getting enough questions and comments that TCLynx suggested I start a discussion so here it goes- I definitely want to hear about anyone elses attempts at vertical hydroponics, and…Continue

I have always struggled to explain my vision for the future. In my mind it’s crystal clear. I see people consuming food grown in their kitchen. I see people living in houses that have walls of orchids and ferns, sleeping and working and playing in rooms that resemble more a jungle than a bedroom or a study. Whenever I drive through the city, I envision the gray concrete walls and the ugly architecture covered with the straw-colored stalks of grasses, brown branches and green…Continue

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately.I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on this email( email@example.com ) for the full details,
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
At 12:42pm on February 13, 2014 you posted a comment to my page and wasted my time with the same whiney bullsh*t that you sent your fanboys to my YouTube channel to convey on your behalf...Let me make this clear, little boy...I'm not knocking off your designs, I'm on-upping them and calling BS on your BS...So far, it looks like I have more subscribers than you have fanboys taking your side.
So long, chump...
Kudos for all the great videos you have been making!
I like the ergonomics of your tower system and I want to reap some of the benefits of such a design; especially easy access to the plants and maximizing growing space with the towers is very appealing to me. Nevertheless I understand that your system is well suited for colder climates and since I’m in the Caribbean with powerful-year-around-sunlight; my question to you is: What would you change in your system to take advantage of the increased light conditions while keeping the practicality of your design? And what sustainable alternatives would you consider to regulate rising temperatures?
Congratulations on having a kid this coming March!
Thanks Nate, if I may call you Nate, I appreciate that. I wouldn't mind conversing more with you on the economic variables concerned with aquaponics. I've seen several of your videos, your vertical growing towers are fantastic. It sounds to me like your doing some very interesting graduate work. Have you been working with any photovoltaic technologies?
Looking forward to hearing back from you,
Michael A. White
You are welcome to call me sometime. , 309-208-5230. BTW My Dad grew up in Wyoming and went to school at U of W, a long time ago. ;o)
Thanks so much Nate! I really appreciate the basil seed information, it is of great help! :) We will surely keep you in mind when we are ready to buy a system!
What type fish do you have for your system. I thought I saw photo's of common Carp yesterday. If so 3-5 lbs. is not large for this fish, I have caught them in streams up to 50 lbs.
.5-.75 lb. per gallon would allow you to have more than 200 lb. in a 485 gallon tank. You should be able to handle 243-364 lbs.for that tank size without loss. 3-5 lb. would be large for Tilapia of any variety, extremely large for Blue Gill, even the Georgia Giants. I have seen a common Gold fish top 70 lb. and Koi top 30 lb., Have you checked for gill parasites.
Your system photos show a very large grow area with very large tanks below, it seems that many of the plants are distorted with a twist as they try to correct to vertical growth. What is you system type called? I have never seen this same type before.
