"My sump is insulated on the bottom as well. Even if ground water seeps in around the tank the tank would eventually heat that water up since it's not flowing. I know of what you speak on the wood stove. I had a similar situation that I already…"

"We have plans for building a GH this summer, my original system design was to have the ST buried but then the city tells us we had to be a foot above ground because we are in a flood zone. So we paid for an expensive inspector to come out and tell…"

"I would not use clay balls.  They tend to get mucky if water levels are not precise and break down into goo.  The best experience I have had was with shale and lava gravel mix "

"The best methods I have seen and used is a 3 stage filtration system 1. vortex radial flow tank to capture large waste deposits. 2. moving bed bio medium filter 3. sump tank.   I am going to take you all the way to Austrailia for a prime…"

Rob replied to Rob's discussion Aquaponics PA
"Very similar weather.  The solar water heater won't be a primary heat source, more of a supplement for the water temps.  I've looked at rocket heater builds and they look awesome, but I already have a great little wood stove just…"
Pam DeLong left a comment for John Carlton
"Hi John, Welcome to Aquaponic Gardening! I see by your profile that you might be interested in Tilapia...if you can keep the totes warm enough. I have Blue Tilapia, and keep most of them in a 750g stock tank out back. I'd lined the inside so…"
Jeff S replied to Rob's discussion Aquaponics PA
"Not sure how the weather is in Pa but if it's anything like Mi solar might not be a good source, especially in the winter. I tried a home made solar water heater this past summer and I didn't produce enough constant heat once the water…"
Rob replied to Rob's discussion Aquaponics PA
"I've read a lot of good things about bell siphon setups, but will be using constant flow initially since this first bed will be feeding directly into a floating raft setup.  I'm getting the shale from a nearby retailer for $24/ 55lb…"

"Tilapia are breeders. They will multiply even when you aren't trying to get them to but if you are trying to grow your stock then you can get 300-500 per litter. Word of caution.... unless you have the space don't try to keep them all. I…"
