I buried a 150 gal watering tank in my green house. right now i have 3 ten foot joints of 3" pvc pipe w/ 2.5" holes in them. i put creek gravel in them . i have 1/2 lb of minnows in my tank. i feed them fish food. i pump the water up into the pipes & it gravity flows thru the pipes back into the fish tank. no veg yet. just wanting to learn more.

About me & a question.

I have sent something simlar to this already some where.  So this wont quit be the same as the first one .  But anyway, thanks for answering so soon.  Youre great, But you knew that already, huh.  About me;  I have a greenhouse 12' X 28'  I tried growing plants in soil in boxes but didnt work too good.  I wanted to try  hydroponics.  So I got on the computer to find out about it and ran across aquaponics.  I liked the soundof it better than hydroponics.  So I'm in the process of changing. I have tried the 3" pipe system, but not as good as I wanted it to be.  So I have set up the barrel System, havent gotten it to working yet.  As soon as i figure out how to work this computer on this web site I will send you a picture of me, and some of my system.  But my question  was How do you get rid of algee.  I think it is bad on my plants as well as my fish.  If you would be kind enough to tell me I would be ever SO thankful.  thanks again.

Welcome Bennie,


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 add a profile image, 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 enjoying a well deserved vacation 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
