    ABANDONED BUILDINGS LIKE  HOSPITALS AND SCHOOLS CAN BE TURNED INTO GOOD PLACE TO DO THIS TYPE OF FARMING.

    6:55 "Tilapia is a warm blooded fish"

    Well, you need to realize there is no warm-blooded fish in the world.

    Is this more energy intensive than industrial agriculture? how much energy comes in and how much comes out?

    Nice! Do you have a Flow diagram with all of the areas and volumetric flow rates and plant growth rates shown. I would like to also better understand your successes and failures too. Can you please send me your e-mail address so we can talk and so I can learn from you if possible.

    Thanks,

    Hi,
    Everyone talks only about Nitrate from the fish waste. But what about other nutrients like Potassium, iron, sulphur, etc and many more which is also required by plants? Do you use some external nutrients as well?

    Good Day, I am in Zimbabwe and would like to set up a commercial aquaponic farming, I have a sizable piece of land close to town. May I kindly ask for a engineer's diagram for system set. Can someone help?

    Thanks for the video dude. The best info that I have noticed was at Aqua garden plans (i did a google) it was the most useful tank system that I got to grow.

    I am developing a windowless greenhouse kit 40x 15 ft x 8 feet high, for self assembly with the flat roof fitted with my PVT solar system that supplies warm water, while the PV powers the LED grow lights to replace natural sunlight. Its a proven fact that glass houses and poly tunnels lose heat in winter and over heat in summer in many parts of the world.
    I dont have the hydroponics expertise, but do have skills in sowing seeds to harvesting the vegtables and fruit in a soil based garden, that always needs to be watered.
    I am interested to hear from anybody who does not see an oppotunity to offer a 2nd option to the glass house/poly tunnel
    We already have big success in Sth Africa for my flat pack water tanks up to 12,000 litres, assembled on site to reduce the cost of shipping tanks full of air.
    All advice welcome

    For those who like to build an useful, fundamental, efficient and low-priced aquaponics system, you must discover how to place it altogether and preserve it properly.

    Do you give seminars or classes on how to operate a system?

    Making aquaponics seems complicated, especially if you have no idea about how to, but it isn't.

    Too bad this outfit is no longer aquaponic…they are now a hyrdoponic operation….rumour has it he tried adding extra hydro nutrients to his systems and killed off the fish. He needed to add more fish instead…even if it was just goldfish…lol

    Notice to everyone here; you do not need to pay for plans or knowledge about this way of growing – there is much info available on line for free.  No, the fish are not 'warm blooded' but are tropical; he misspoke in the video about this and also about the required temps – you'd need to hold tilapia (African cichlids on the aquarium trade) at around 80 degrees year round and you'll lose ALL of them if they go under 70 or so.  The more water you have in your system, the steadier the water temp will be and you can run the hoses through compost piles which are typically around 110 degrees to help heat the water for free in winter.  In Texas 120 degree summers, you add ice to the water to cool it and shade the greenhouse and fish tanks.  He's got a LOT of water thru-put in this system and that much is not always necessary; he could run his pumps on a lot less electricity if he wanted to save that cost some. Setting up the system with primarily gravity feed with only one pump to raise the water to the highest point, plus an aerator, and you're good, so build it with some thought to that.  Whether you can make money on this depends at least some on your business sense, and ability to make the contacts necessary to sell the produce weekly, or hiring people who can help you with that.  That may be what his 'intern' was doing, learning and also selling at a farmer's market which could easily pay his salary. I know of family run businesses selling 1000 heads of lettuce a week at $2 a head retail, $1 a head wholesale.  Anything ready to sell that doesn't at that point is donated to senior centers, food banks and maybe schools and is a tax write off.  You can make another revenue stream out of teaching and giving tours.

    i might say that african cichlids prefer non acidic water so keeping the ph high to match where the fish came from.

    The good news is you can create your own aquaphonics system although you have no idea about building aquaphonics before.

    You do not need lots of skill about gardening to grow plants and fruits without toxic chemicals with aquaphonics system
