Hi Dara,

I will be visting Cambodia this Jan 2012, I have been to cambodia a few time and wanting to start a business or some kind there. And i was hoping if i stay in PP. Maybe i can start a aquaponic system on my roof top as well. And now that i know you and a few other members are from Cambodia and actually have a system running. Maybe you and others can help me out. I never actually seen a system setup and running. So i was wondering if or when u have time, maybe u can give me a tour of your aquaponic system while im staying in Cambodia.  Peter.

Hi Dara,

Thanks for getting back to me. My email address is cmlozano04@gmail.com

I'm posting now a picture of my previous system. I'm in Toul Kork now, in a different house from the one in the picture. Let me know when you get some time free so that we can get together. I guess the best will be to meet at your house (since I don't have an aquaponic system in mine anymore). The aquaponic system in the picture is an ebb and flow. I used shells and river gravel as a growing media. I was also growing earth worms and duckweed ('Cho' in Khmer) to supplement feeding. I also invented an automatic feeder that fed the fish 4 times a day everyday. Once I went on holidays for 3 weeks, and the feeder worked really well. At the minute I'm constructing a system but using rafts and it is much, much bigger than the one before. I should have it finished in one month or so. Let me know when it suits you to meet with me. Cheers, Carlos

Hi Chandara Khan,

I was so glad to find somebody else here in PP that is doing aquaponics! Hope we can get in touch soon to just have a chat. Maybe we could meet in person somewhere in PP? My only previous experience with aquaponics has been to setup a working system on the roof of an appartment in PP. It worked really well. Now I'm building a much bigger system in Kampong Speu Province (25km from PP). So fare I've built the rearing tanks (9000 and 8000 liters) and this week I've begun with the troughs. As I said, I'm curious to see what you are doing and in finding ways to help each other.

Thanks, Carlos (mob. 013220210)

Welcome Chandara,

 

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 join in.  Always thrilled to have experienced growers join us – please post some photos of your system!

 

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 Main page.

 

If you can afford it I would also appreciate a donation through the “Donate button” on the right side of the home page.  This helps me with monthly site fees, but is NOT a requirement of membership.  If you can contribute… great!  It will be very much appreciated.

 

Thanks again for joining us, and I look forward to getting to know you.

 

Sylvia
