with your system you designed here how would you go about scaling the system for a small profit system. How many fish vs the grow bed size ect taking into consideration the media bed , dwc and NFT . how do i work out how many fish ect
Thank you for this model. I'm going to try this for my first setup.
Ok, but what if root pieces from the grow beds makes its way to the sump tank? wouldn't that be a bad thing???
what if Kevin has a super large NFT system such that the collective drain back from that system is enough flow for the fish tank and solids lift.
Would 3 inch PVC be a suitable size for lettuce, Basel, cilantro etc?… or would a 4 inch PVC be better?
Ty for this video. I have aspirations of a huge NFT system, and this blueprint is a huge help. 2 questions though : what is the mechanism that's gets the flow from the bottom of the swirl filter to the bio filter, and have you seen the Ubergro system? There's a few short videos if you haven't. Their system has the NFT racks very close. Do you think there's enough sun exposure and airflow?
Hey I just found your channel. Awesome information! Im planing on building a similar system to this but have one question. If the biofilter is empty g to the sump tank and sump is feeding the grow beds and fish tank, wouldnt the nutrients from the bio-filter harm the fish? Or does the sump dilute it to a point to where the levels won't affect the fish? Thanks in advance! 😀
learning a lot 🙂 thanks to you sharing all this (y)
I have a 100 gal tank(half full) with fish pumping water thru a bucket as a spin filter and then flows to two small media beds with filter material on the inlets . One empties back into the fish tank the other empties into float bed then gravity flow to the tank. With this set up what would be the best use of a new IBC tank?
How do you determine what size your sump tank should be?
can you use your sump tank as a dwc?
great! how large swirl filter and biological filter tanks do you recommend for 200-250 gallon fish tank?
