  3. I hope this is the right place to post this but I was wondering if anyone had advice on the types of worms to use. I plan to use the worms to feed the BG in my Aquaponic unit. I'm also looking for a bin as well, are these worth buying? Or should I just make my own? Any recommendations? ​ ​Thanks in advance for any help
  4. I have been trying to locate a source of organic hydroponic nutrients here is the USA to follow up on the statements made in other forums. Can anyone tell me some sources for such nutrients, all I have found is the pot organic stuff that is expensive. Clint
  5. I've built it! I used 1 IBC container. The top 1/3 of the IBC container was cut and flipped. I filled it with red lava rocks on the bottom half and Hydroton on the top half. After doing more research, I realized more grow bed volume was needed. I made a frame out of some thick cedar and posts and tossed in a pond liner. I used river pebbles on the top half to go the cheaper route. I have just about a 1 to 1 ratio going. The pump is a 550-GPH from Lowes. I have it on a cinder block in case something happens and it will not drain the whole tank. Is it bad that it is not on the bottom? I split the pvc from the pump and have a 3/4" pvc about 3 ft long with many holes drilled in the side to give the tank a current. I used Affnan's website to help with the bell siphon and it works great. Each bed drain has a homemade venturi similar to Affnan's. I may be able to avoid an air pump, but I have an Air Pump AIR-8000: For aquariums up to 170 gallons. I got 9 Koi from a friend in the neighborhood. There are 4 that are about 6 inches and the rest are about 4 inches. Is that enough fish? Also, is there a recommended food that would be more organic? The stuff from Lowes, Smart Pond Premium Fish Food, has some crazy ingredients. I need a duckweed tank I guess. I posted some pictures to my profile. This site has been a great resource. So, 3 questions... Is it bad that the pump is not on the bottom? Would 9 Koi enough for 625 Liters? Is there a good organic food to buy?
