"It will be interesting to see what the final ppm ammonia is. I'm also wondering what the long term storage will do to the milled soybean flour in this humonia? Maybe it will breakdown into other useful components? I don't…"
"Urease aged humonia day 2: ammonia is still increasing, today it was 32 drops to get 4ppm ammonia in 64oz of water.
This is the most interesting thing I've done in quite a while. I'm 62 and feel like I'm back in school, actually…"
"Depending on how density you stock your tanks, that is not always true. I am designing a low density system. I will not have any filtration between the beds and the fish tank. I will have a LOT of oxygenation and 128 sq ft of grow space with about…"

"This drawing shows the plumbing for my system except for the line from the sump to the FT. That one runs up and overhead to the FT. The water level is determined by the height of the standpipe in the FT or filter depending on where you want it. You…"
"This is the rough idea I am thinking of. The one thing I'd like to able to figure out is how to only pump up to the fish tank, but make gravity work in my favor from the fish tank to the grown beds to flower water directly from the fish…"
"I only have 2 media beds that drain and they only have about 40 gallons of water each and even if I activate the 3rd bed as a media bed there will still be plenty of room in the sump. I only have it about 1/3 full now. The sump is in ground under…"
