my name is Omari Jaffe and i am from trinidad and tobago ( Caribbean )
for the past year i have embark on a journey to learn about growing plants naturally , soil science , recycling , healing herbs and now the journey has lead me to aquaponics. I first found about aquaponics on the tv in usa when i was living there. I saw a special on Will Allen, it was super inspiring. i like the concept of growing a lot in small spaces and even using vertical spaces also. I think the future of growing food is in an urban style by maximizing all spaces and reusing and recycle every and anything that can be use.
i was video surfing and i came across ( UFG Goes to INDIA!! - YouTube ) the Urban Experiment and i said to myself i could build system like in my country. So my gold is to learn and share from you guys and girls here on AP-HQ
Yes i have a small battery powered aerator.........comes on with power failure. Also consider, If your FT has a large volume of water, say 1 lb fish to 12 gal water, fish can stay without O2 for approx. 4 hours. So 1 lb fish to 24 gal = 8 hours etc. If you have large system water volumes you won't necessarily need backup aeration. You can also design a simple paddle wheel to windmill system, or you can use all three solutions simultaneously. Enjoy the forums and if you have any questions you can pm me or call 788-4434.
