  1. I've had this for a few months now and I really jumped in way too deep at first so there's been a lot of back tracking. I was just so excited to start. I think I'm finally starting to see a healthier system. I just tested the water and I got: pH-6.0 Ammonia 1.0ppm Nitrite 5.0 Nitrate 100ppm is that too high? I'm not sure where these levels are supposed to be. I know I want the pH higher, like 6.8-7.2 but the others I'm not so sure about. It's a 20 gallon fish tank that I have underneath the grow bed which is a 63 liter plastic tote that was not a good choice. I don't think it's deep enough and it's getting all bulgy on the bottom. So there's a 396 gal/hour pump which is way over-kill and I couldn't get my siphon to kick off so I lowered the flow rate by piping the water into a 5 gallon tote with net pots in it. the water fills up the tote like a flood and drain and slows the filling of the main grow bed enough so that the siphon stops properly and I have more plant spaces.
  2. Hello All, I'm new on APHQ, reading as much as i can to build my first set up involving catfish, and tomato,jalpeno,green pepper,and lettuce plants. I want to build small indoor system as i do not have access to an secure outdoor space. I have several 30-35 gallon plastic packing containers and thought i might be able to use 1 of these for the catfish and 2 traditional lightweight pots (hal filled with a good amount of soil, and also a level of drainage stones on the bottom of the pots) for the plants,placed inside 1 of the larger packing containers to keep the water overflow from the pots from escaping to the carpet. I wouldnt be able to link the containers due to my landlord not wanting any possibilty of water leakage.I would remove the fish periodically to a holding tank to clean the tank of fish waste and i would use a wet/ dry vac to remove the waste & to pour over the veggie pots. i would purchase an 2 air stones to keep the fish tank full of oxygen. Thanks and If anyone has any suggestions,I am most appreciative
  3. Hello, everyone. I've been studying up on aquaponics for the last year or so and am excited to start a small system in the next month to use as a test run and a long-term school science project for my children. I have soooo many questions and I think the more I read about it, the more overwhelmed I am with choices. Any guidance I can get is greatly appreciated, especially from real people already doing it and hopefully in my area of the north. Looking forward to meeting you all!
