  1. Hi, The is my first post as I have just found the forum. I am hoping someone will give me some design ideas to get my Aquaponics System started in the right direction. Here is what I have: I have a 20 x 40 Cement Pond (aka Swimming Pool). It has had goldfish for the past 20 years or so. I do not filter or circulate the water and the goldfish have grown and also have raised 100's of baby goldfish so I have many different sizes. I plan on using the water for several different plant systems. Will I need more than one pump? How large of pump? And also pumps to pump the water back to cement pond. I hope I have given enough information for someone to guide me in the right direction so as not to have to be changing systems setup. Have a great day, Vic
  2. Hi, my name is Tristan Jones, and I am currently working on a project on Aquaponics for my TPSP class. TPSP is a year long class in which we research a topic of our choice and use that knowledge to make a product. My product for the project is a very cheap, but efficient aquaponics system that is for at-home use and I will be showing you how to build it and how to get it started. Parts needed: • Media Bed- You can use anything you want, I’m using a cat litter box/tub. • Fish tank- 16 x 12in • Fish food- Anything that matches with your fish • PVC piping • Pump • Netted Cups • Fish- You can have any fish but I will use goldfish because of their high export of ammonia and tolerance. • Plant Seeds- You can have any plant seeds, but I will use cabbage. • Media-You can use anything but I will use expanded clay balls, or lava rock. Video: [To Be Included] Directions: 1. Place your Media Bed over the fish tank or have something to support it, and see where you want your in and out flow pipes. 2. When you know where you want the pipes to go. 3. Mark and cut holes with the correct size according to your pipes. 4. Place your pipes in and fill the bed with your media. 5. Adjust the height to just level with the media. 6. Put water in the tank and in the media bed. Make sure to have the correct water level so that the water doesn’t overflow or be too little for the fish. 7. Put your fish and plant seeds in. 8. Feed fish a fixed amount every day. Common Problems: Plants aren’t growing- In the beginning of an aquaponics system the bacteria that converts the ammonia into nitrite (nitrosomonas) and nitrite into nitrate (nitrobacters) haven’t been formed yet. They will naturally grow so you don’t have to worry about it. Water isn’t flowing in or out- Make sure that nothing is blocking the water. There might have been media that got into the pipes.

    We had a great time showing teacher from around the country aquaponic and how it can be integrated into their schools.
