My system details and plans

Posted on September 13, 2012 at 11:47am 2 Comments

I'm still in the design/gathering parts/building phase of this project.

My fish tanks are housed in a 9'X17' insulated room of my barn. I have 5=275 gallon IBC's. They all have SLO that goes to a combined 2" outlet. One of the IBC's can be converted to a sump (incase the drain line to the greenhouse freezes).

My greenhouse is about 180' away from the fish room. It is 20'Wx40'L. I have not yet connected it to the fish room. I hope to get the trench done this fall. Inside, my…

Hi Tony,

    I'll recommend that you start out by starting a Discussion about your system so we have a place to discuss ideas, and by doing it in a discussion you can pick the brains of more than just me (because quite frankly I'm really busy at the moment getting my farm up and running and I have to ration my computer time.)  Anyway, start a discussion somewhere on the forum and If I don't chime in there, send me a message with a link to the discussion so I can find it.

Hi Tony,

WOW!!! What a blast from the past.  I graduated Malabar in 1980, and grew up within walking distance of Johnny Appleseed Junior High.  We were practically neighbors (except I'm older).  I live in Northern CA now, just South of San Francisco in an area called Los Altos Hills.   I work in Silicon Valley.  Last weekend I bought an aquaponics system from Chi Ma, who lives in Saratoga.  He is  totally cool guy who knows a lot about aquaponics and is on this forum.  I have a few tilapia at work in a heated tank, and a bunch of cat fish in a non-heated tank at my house.  I'm growing lettuce and corn in the media bed.  I'm so thrilled to her about what you are doing.  Keep me posted and also post pics as your system develops. Good luck with everything.

Welcome Tony,

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 Home page. You might also find the “Aquaponic Gardening Rules of Thumb” guidelines helpful.

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

Normally Sylvia Bernstein, the community's founder, would be welcoming you, but she is vacationing in Japan and I am helping out by welcoming new members in her absence. I am certain she would be excited to have you join and she will be looking forward to getting to know you upon her return.

Thanks again for joining us, and I too look forward to getting to know you too. See you around the site!

Gina Cavaliero
