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...

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?

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

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.

How is the oxygen content of you tank, losing fish could mean low oxygen or not enough ammonia conversion area. You would need at least 65 Cu.Ft. to provide sufficient surface area for 485 gallons. about 6500 sq. ft. S and S Aqua Farms had more fish than you do per gallon of water, they also used 1200 gallon tanks they maintained 5-6 ppm oxygen also.

If those are your fish in the photo, they are sick. Do you test your ammonia levels daily, weekly? The blowout problem reminds me of some BlueGill left in a tank with an auto feeder system that put out too much feed and the ammonia spiked on a hot period. Some of the fish had similiar anus.

i am very interested in using walls or vertical towers,  i was planning on experimenting with some tubes, and channels, maybe use some coconut coir wrapped in bird netting etc? do you sell your towers?

Just purchased green house 20x50, looking into trenching for the pond. The plot i have is about 2 acres total. Gonna do bio diverse/permacuture farming on the majority of it. I'll get photo's as I move through.
My friends have deemed me a rainbow warrior, or maybe it's part of the prophecy, my ancestors dreamed and were told of?

Thanks for the post

thanks for the friend request. i do try to keep my head in the right place, but screwed on straight is a matter of perception. lol. have a good one.

Nate....I was curious as to where these towers are manufactured?  The cost? Sizes etc? Replacement of growing media? Lighting?

Questions: One growing side only? Spacing for light and how many per square foot.

Saw your Strawberry video...what were the production results and do they warrant commercial application...income / profit etc? I have spoken to Strawberry suppliers / Researchers and all have said "Hydroponic" berries are NOT profitable. They have beautiful photos but NO $$$$$. No one I have found does a profitable AP system. I wish as I have a customer one mile away that will take 80 to 100 cs a week.

Thank You Nate.....Victor   Zalinda  Farms

Thanks, Nate. I'm new to the you-tube thing, but I'll make some more. Kind of fun.

Hi Nate got one question for you, Have you grow any bulb plants in your vertical  system like tulips, onions and so on..?
At 12:38pm on September 11, 2011, A. Simon said…
Wow, really!

Hi again, I'm also curios about your logistics and how you transport these columns and flow rate?
