    Mon Feb 03 2014 12 47 am Thanks for support everyone Photos will follow but time and torrential downpour intervened Another opportunity has cropped up that I can t not take advantage of but makes things more complicated There was a temporary porch put up on the front of a chiller at work That has been dismantled and was going to the tip till I stepped in So now I have 6 metal clad insulated panels 2 2m x 1 2m 10cm thick To move Cut to fit they would maximise use of space and make the IBCs redundant Too many resources is a good thing to have so I m not complaining Slyboy I have redesigned this thing in my head pretty every day for the pas few months It s still forming in my mind However the initial thing will be a 1000 litre fish tank with an overflow into a 500 litre sump tank right next to it The first grow bed will be sited directly above these 2 tanks Water will be pumped from the sump tank to the grow bed via a ring of pipe sited around the edge of the bed buried 1cm under the pebbles I haven t decided whether the bed will have a drain slower than the fill or an autosyphon but essentially the sump tank will be the same capacity as the grow bed So the sump tank empties as the pump fills the grow bed When the grow bed drains into the fish tank the fish tank overflows into the sump tank That way the fish tank is always full For correct balance I need the same grow bed volume as fish tank size Grow bed 2 will be a duplicate of no 1 They ll be filled 1 2 hour apart so that the sump tank doesn t need to be bigger 2 pumps in the sump each feeding their respective grow bed I have the 1st grow bed constructed 2 2m x 0 75m x 0 3m 480 litres and I d hoped to have it all in place and cycling by now but I will get there Chilliman you are in the home of aquaponics A world of expertise on your doorstep and the perfect climate You know it makes sense Barramundi would be a dream At the moment I m struggling to find anyone to sell me Nile Tilapia Again thanks everyone No pics and a little behind schedule but it is happening Top ronniedeb Chilli Guru Posts 3140 Joined Fri Sep 02 2011 10 31 am Location Galway Ireland Re ChilliJez goes FishyJez Quote Post by ronniedeb Mon Feb 03 2014 8 41 am Look forward to the photos Chillijez Are you going to grow chillis or other crops Top ChilliJez Chilli Guru Posts 2496 Joined Sun Jan 16 2011 5 06 pm Location South Cheshire or Peckham Re ChilliJez goes FishyJez Quote Post by ChilliJez Tue Feb 04 2014 12 17 am hempy potsThanks Ronan A good question No it s not going to be just chilles On the contrary it s going to be veg for the home predominantly When I joke about swmbo it s actually she who puts up with a lot Given that it s cost quite a bit to put the thing together I think it s only fair that we concentrate on stuff that we both eat and she s gets ill if she eats peppers That said I intend to stick a chilli in each corner of the first bed and probably 6 in the second However I have plans to stratify my chilli grow I ve realised that some plants I could happily have 10 x the number of pods from and some I just want a few to try revisit or refresh seed stock The 2 main grow beds will provide a good volume to match the fish tank size as it s getting established but then I can expand the growing area and I intend to do that vertically I m planning on restricted root area but good water nutrient and air supply for healthy bonsai chilli plants Think of 4 chilli plants growing in net pots out of the sides of a 4 foot drain pipe filled with clay pebbles I think I ll have space for 6 of those tubes giving 34 plants in the system Other chillies will be in hempy pots and other wick fed contrivances Part of the plan that I may not have mentioned is hot swapping for want of a better term Rather than growing in clay pebbles directly in the grow bed I intend to use a bunch of rectangular grey drums that are cast off containers from work I intend to have a small flood and drain hydro set up alongside The grey drums are perforated and filled with the clay pebbles and planted up I have the hydro with a couple of drums with big nute hungry plants and a couple with pebbles unplanted That way if the nitrites start going up I can take out small plant drum and swap in a heavy feeder and vice versa Other plants in the summer will be trial and error but toms aubergines and cukes will feature I m quite tempted by some of the unusual leafy things that real seeds are offering I ve got some onion sets lined up and waiting And I m very open to suggestions As it moves towards winter I intend to keep it running and I hope to have made progress with some parabolic solar heaters by then to make the thing affordable With winter low light the whole system would move towards leaf plants to mop up the nitrates whilst not needing quite as much light By that stage if it s going vaguely to plan I would try and introduce favourite overwinter chillies to see how they would do I e pubescens If anyone has any

Quote Post by ChilliJez Sat Jun 21 2014 11 47 pm All chilled out on the aquaponic front No news is average news On the positive side of things the fish are getting bigger and are very hungry Not quite the piranha frenzy at feeding times but quite eager However they re a tiny fraction of maximum capacity for the system and plants are really starting to suffer The yellowing of leaves over the last week is striking So I took out the sorrel and mustard greens to reduce demand and I ll give a nitrogen foliar feed tomorrow It s not going badly but It s going to be the entire season to be established and in balance Yawn I must say that going out in the morning to feed the fish has a certain therapeutic chill out effect Here am I sitting in a tin can Far above the world Top ronniedeb

Jul 21 2014 12 23 am John Thank you for asking I do appreciate it My world of aquaponics has taken somthing of a knock really and I ve not posted because it doesn t look overly cheery When I posted my grow fish grow thing I was feeling that the plants looked pale and a bit lacking That has got worse despite applying foliar feed sprays The plants suffering the most are the chillies Lots of small yellow leaves and not much growth Celery and brassicas are doing fine I have a Femspot F1 cuke that s marching on and looking healthy Ginger is producing shoots Coriander looked awful and so I pulled it out Sorrel was a thug and started seeding as did mustard greens so they have gone too It was only on the train today that I thought about nutes getting locked out I ve tested pH with a compare with the colour chart thing and it s seemed to be in range but if I m reading that incorrectly that could explain a lot David Slyboy gave me amongst other things a pH meter so now I want to put that to use I work a fairly punishing 60 hour week Monday to Thursday in London so I get a couple of days only to check on my plants One regular thing is to top up the water I reckon I add about 150 litres each week to the system Does that sound reasonable Transpiration evaporation My greenhouse does look particularly full of lush green growth That s largely down to Slyboy giving me a quadgrow and an nft and lots of plants with them I have been wondering if I should do updates on his growlog Probably pride of place in that is a Son of Hulk Choc Bhut Jolokia Hulk you may remember is was Experiment Dave s super productive growtent plant Also a ShabuShabu A Lucy Thanks Nick and Slyboy s 3yo 7 Pod which feels like a responsibility Otherwise in hydro I put 5 chinenses into hempy buckets and they have done
