I am in the planning stage of a new RAS. I have been reading my Small Scale Aquaculture book and it has answered a few of my unknowns. It has also raised some new questions. Having had an aquaponics system running for a little over 2 years, I thought I knew what I was getting into. Nope, this is a new game. So, now I am wondering what to use as a bio-filter. Van Gorder suggest that his RBC is the way to go with a 2000 gallon pool, but he uses 2 55 gallon clarifiers. I am thinking of using a 12 ft. (2000 gal.) above ground pool to raise blue tilapia in central Florida. I was planning on using a 55 gallon radial flow filter for the solids, a 150 gallon Skippy filter for the ammonia and nitrites and a separate tank growing duckweed for the nitrates. My main objective is to avoid water changes. What do you guys think?
I have been into aquaponics in my backyard for over two years now and I am still learning. Now I am planning on getting an aquaculture venture going using above ground pools. I have already found that it is a different game and I accept the challenge. You can see my setup on YouTube by searching for HOWponics. Glad I found my way to the Aquaponics Nation.
