Written by The School of Aquaponics

We are here to push the movement of aquaponics in a forward direction. Our primary focus is help you in your adventure with aquaponics by providing you with the highest level of information. Aquaponics is still in its infancy and we predict that it will be the go to method of farming by many families and urban farmers. Our job is to ensure that they are taught correctly.

  1. I don't understand how the water can go back to the sump tank after the grow beds. Is the whole point not that the water circulates: fish/plants/fish/plants (with filters etc).
    By going plants/sump would some plant water not re-circulate back to the plants, not collecting any poop from the fish.
    ie your diluting the good poopy fish water with poopless plant water and re-circulateing it.

  2. More people need to learn Object Oriented concepts. You can knock out half of the inefficiencies of most of these "beginners transitioning into advanced layouts" concepts just by grouping subcomponents together.

  3. Good day school of aquponics I'm living in a small apartment complex so I'm working on a design to accommodate the space I have wana make 4 nft systems one over the next then runs off into a flood and drain system and back to the tank any advice

  4. Hi, Today, watched 6 hours of your vid's, Love them, Love you 🙂

    What i think is key, although it is for me.

    The Legendary Split Flow is scary becouse it involves thinking mode of one way.

    step by step thinking (first this, then that) instead of quantum thinking.

    What i did think before this vid was :
    All my water needs to flow first ;
    #1 through the fishtank
    #2 then through a lobstertank
    #3 then through a remineralisation tank
    #4 Pressurized micro solid filter
    #4 then through the gravel bed. ( with overflow bypass to newly thaught of sumptank)
    #5 then through a DWC ( with overflow bypass to newly thaught of sumptank)
    #6 Then through a nft with steady flow from #5
    into the fishtank again.

    through this vid i now know, a sumptank is inevitable, as well as a split flow from sump to #1 and #4

    the fish feeding is once a day, but the flow is constant.
    Fishtank refreshement is 24 times a day(or every 82 minutes if you'd please(UVI)) , as long as the micro solids are not going through the veggie part of the system it can split flow whatever it wants.

    Correct ?

    in one of your vids this year you asked for a Q-vid. i will try to make one upon all your Answers to try and make a "perfect" set-up for my situation and location here.

    keep up the good work !

  5. Thank you I really enjoy and learn from your channel.
    I have a deep water system, i have 12 beds with size 1.7*13 m. I have 4 fish tanks with size( 7.5 qm ) each
    . Do you think that my tanks are enough to grow the beds plants that i have. And what is the proper size of bio filter (i have a plastic filter) that can help in breaking the ammonium.

  6. Hey I am a beginner at this I've been doing fresh and saltwater fish tanks as well as coral tanks for years I am wanting to do a small system in my backyard what I would love to know is what determines if I have to use a flood and drain system or a continuous flow system i'm planning to run a 100 gallon Rubbermaid stock tank as the fish tank as well as a Nother Rubbermaid tank in the ground for a sump which I am not sure what size I should use I plan to use a swirl filter for the main large solidsand to grow beds also not sure what type of media I should be using can you help me out any advice would be awesome

  7. I teach at North Western, ''tis is key to feeding the world, I have visited South Africa and toured there farms, your a great teacher my friend, keep educating the people if your ever in the area , would love to have you speak in class. Scott
