Glad if it inspires you Erika I still have some issues to sort out to keep the plants happy but I am raising some plants and the fish are getting bigger If you do some googling I m sure you will find stuff about off grid aquaponics I m assuming your allotment doesn t have power https www youtube com watch v JWq6WJ5TDic In the meantime you could have a fish tank in your living room and a growbed on the balcony Top Smilesbetter Chilli Head Posts 59 Joined Thu Aug 07 2014 4 54 pm Re ChilliJez Aquaponic Mission The first cull Quote Post by Smilesbetter Sun Aug 17 2014 6 41 pm Thanks The fish tank thing is a great idea would be a good way to get a handle on how aquaponics works plus my cats would LOVE a fish tank cat TV The allotments here I m in Germany usually have water and electricity it s easy to get it hooked up anyway I ve not got one yet but looking to get one in a year or two I think I ll save the aquaponics thing till I get my own house and garden but the fish tank idea I might

you to have a go at aquaponics and I think you re wise to wait until you re in a settled place to do it I m not out of the woods yet with exactly what I m doing right and what I should do better There s quite a lot of enthusiastic people out there but nowhere near the number that are active on chilli forums or 420 type forums with hydro information The 2 forums I visit are Aquaponic Source and Backyard Aquaponics sited in America and Australia respectively The guys there have a lot more experience but generally it s warm climate focussed The most useful resource I ve found is Sylvia Bernstein s book It s very practical and informative at the right level I ve played around with hydro projects in the past so when my second growbed and the vertical tube things weren t working I switched the remaining two tubes to conventional ish hydro The

I d hate you to get bored This is too long and not well done but here are my fish just about 1 year from being introduced Then they were about 1cm long and so translucent they were hard to see I put 40 in and over the first few weeks I lost a lot There was no corpse as such just a wisp of ash on the surface These are the survivors Clicking on the pic links to my photobucket I would have edited it but haven t worked out how yet Do they look plate sized to you I have to much invested to be balanced I won t actually harvest any until I ve read a bit more and then ramped up the heat to get them breeding Babies will be coming your way so start making plans Get a fish tank in the cafe It could be an attraction It could remind everyone of The Meaning of Life Hey look Howard s being eaten https

didn t survive the winter And a short clip of some plate sized fish The bad news is that our landlord is selling our house and we have to move It s a pretty daunting prospect but it will allow me to redesign to some extent I will go for a number of smaller containers for growbeds as they ll be more manageable and accessible There are some 90 litre containers from Green Fingers hydro that are the right depth and I should be able to link them together The fish tank will be in the garage as it will be much cheaper to insulate and keep

    a novice 12 months or so but now I have big fish and babies so I can start harvesting I hope to get to a position where I have a mixed age population and when it comes to the end of autumn I can harvest the bigger fish and keep the smaller ones to overwinter powering a grow tent arrangement that I plan on setting up I hope this will keep the system alive whilst managing costs through the cold dark days Top Chilli Keith Chilli Guru Posts 1269 Joined Sat Jan 03 2015 11 06 pm Location West Sussex Contact Contact Chilli Keith Facebook Re ChilliJez Aquaponic Mission House Move Quote Post by

Top ChilliJez Chilli Guru Posts 2496 Joined Sun Jan 16 2011 5 06 pm Location South Cheshire or Peckham Re ChilliJez Aquaponic Mission House Move Quote Post by ChilliJez Sun Jul 05 2015 5 55 am 3 weeks on and the fish seem happy but I m not There was a leak somewhere in the system that I couldn t find and it was getting worse needing frequent refilling which wasn t good for fish plants or bacteria I tried turning the growbed through 90 degrees to reposition the outlet directly over the sump I raised the bed a little and transferred the pump and return line to the 2nd blue barrel that I can see but to no avail In the end I bit the bullet and I ve reworked the whole system I ve dragged the old growbed into place and raised it onto concrete blocks The top is about waist height and just lower than the top of the fish tank so the fishtank can still overflow into it This growbed is too big It s 470 litres so the sump would be empty before the bed was filled to the right level To work around this I ve set 2 cut down barrels into it These can still work as growing area lettuce on floating rafts or whatever but they don t need to be filled from the sump capacity each time They are about 70 litres each so drop the growbed size to about 330 litres which is ok for the sump just Water from the fishtank is delivered to them and they overflow to fill the rest of the growbed The drain from the growbed heads back into the garage where I have a second IBC alongside the fishtank to act as a sump I ve transferred 4 straggly tomato plants as they survived the previous move ok despite having reasonable leaf area Also I moved horseradish and sorrel both thugs The pak choi is all that s really left behind It s already bolting so not worth moving What I will be putting in is all my shockingly bad chillies from dwc and coir clay pebble mix These are awfully treated plants that are barely hanging in there so I don t expect them to fruit but if they do better here at least I ll feel a little less guilty The virtue of this new arrangement is that I can see everything The question is does it work Answer no I ran out of time yesterday at which point the fish tank was filling quicker than the delivery to the bed So I have to add a second delivery line or raise the fish tank like that s going to be easy Then hopefully all will be ok I have about 3 hours this morning before back to work so it s a quick visit to Wicks when they open and some frantic plumbing Are we having fun yet The tip that is the end of my garden What was that you said about the view dear Abandoned bed with mostly pak choi on the right New bed on left badly in need of some camouflage The sleepers are laid out where the greenhouse will be White pipes deliver water from fishtank to blue barrels These will overflow to fill the rest of the growbed In one I ll probably put lettuces on a floating raft In the other I may grow duckweed to feed the fish The guard round the drain tube is now 110mm soil pipe so I can get in there if needs be and the pipe is filled with stainless steel wool to keep errant clay pebbles at bay Both learned the hard way Top Chilli Keith Chilli Guru Posts 1269 Joined Sat
