"Yeah. Going to start raising the Trout from large fingerlings. Adding 4 more 1200 gallon tanks. During the grow out stage, I will keep purchasing and selling 1-1/2 pounders.
The cost and die off is simply too expensive to keep…"
"Rob, in your estimation, what do you think the minimum ratio (in terms of surface area) for rafts to media would be in order to achieve good filtration of solids and good biofiltration? (It looks like you have about a 2:1?) I ask because where I am…"
"I am working on a set of plans but I will be awhile finishing up. I am stalled at 110 pages and I don't want to go ahead until my system has proven itself and is finished with all bugs worked out.. There are enough vids out there on great ideas…"

"A simple alternative might be a Chofu heater or a snorkel stove. The Chofu could be worked with solenoid valves to avoid overheating the tank. The snorkel stove could be used to heat a tank directly or a secondary body of water then…"
The plants is like a filter bypass and water gravity flow to the fish tank to give you the answer herewith.
How Aquaponics Works1. Fish are raised in a tank2. Water from the fish tank is pumped to the plants3. Bacteria convert ammonia and…"

"The sump in our system is the lowest point where water collects, and cannot gravity feed to anywhere. Of course a system could be constructed that way if one wished to design it as such. In our system, the sump is where the water collects before it…"
"Tilapia are warm water fish. Mine wouldn't breed in water under 90 degrees. They prefer about 80 degrees, optimally. I am sure you know that growth is affected by many factors. Space, feed, temp, etc., all affect growth…"
