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. Hi Aquaponics God, i watched many commercial aquaponics that they separate solid waste out by drum filter but they don't explain further treatment so i want to know how system treatment and after treatment is it bring back to cycle to add more nutrient or they through it to garden?. some system they treat by bio digestion what is benefit to system?.

  2. Nah, i disagree. He could totally do aquaponics with that setup without expansion. Fish come in all sizes. Ever heard of goldfish? Mosquito fish?. Beta? They really dont need a lot of space and the filtration needed for them is miniscule They could produce more than enough nitrates for those towers. Thats not a lot of produce at the end of the day. I get the impression that APG hasnt worked with a lot of small setups.

  3. Just some last minute changes to the design in the video:

    1 – yes, hydro only. Aqua comes later with more specialized systems and available square footage.
    2 – Ventilation is being handled by small usb powered fans.. quiet, low power, and directional.. it is easy to create a "whirlwind effect" inside the mylar enclosure. Plants love that.
    3 – I now run the hose inside the grow tower.. simplifies design
    4 – I maintain a small pump for each tower… I made the choice after a lot of research into failure rates.. and losing ONE tower was about as likely as losing all towers in case of a pump failure.
    5 – I have a dimmer on the LED strips now… I am sure the final design and behavior of the lights will change.. I dont plan on growing anything requiring flowering at first, therefore a timer is not really necessary. Crank up the foliage with 24h of light for fastest growth. But again, I am sure the design will change and a timer will come.
    6 – I have maintained the original design goal of only using low voltage devices.. 12v, 5v. The idea is that the power source is variable/flexible. Sun available? run on solar panels, charge batteries. Nighttime? Cloudy day? Run on the batteries you charged yesterday. No batteries? Plug in a 4A 12v adapter and the show continues.
    7 – As my plants grow, and seedlings sprout, I have put a lot of work into the automation of the cart. The decentralized nature of the food manufacture (mobile carts) makes it so that anything beyond 10 carts simply could not be managed by a single person. Minimal monitoring and alerting HAS to be built in to the design of the carts. I already collect the easy stuff, temp, water temp, humidity, and light logging. I will soon receive the pH sensor and implement real-time monitoring. I am also going to experiment with reverse weight sensors for tracking the running weight of the towers. Automation is the the doorway to consistency and profits. I cant optimize what I cant measure. I cant remediate failures if I don't know I have a failure.

    I am excited… and charging forward.. I have had design challenges every step of the way but I am convinced that I can make it work, and it will allow me to build my business, one cart at a time.

    Thanks again man. I will be sure to send you update videos.

  4. dude! Thx for answering.. There was much more I wanted to say.
    Yeah, I think that introducing fish is overkill.. you are right.. Right on.

    Fish out..
    Ventilation already in.
    The idea is to have mobile carts is to expand capacity slowly, min manageable "chunks" (one cart at a time).

    Selling systems is also a good idea.
