aq·ua·pon·ics
ˌäkwəˈpäniks,ˌak-/
noun
a system of aquaculture in which the waste produced by farmed fish or other aquatic animals supplies nutrients for plants grown generally hydroponically, which in turn purify the water.

Hello, I'm the Aquaponic Dumme. I signed up on this site a while back, but haven't posted much. Here's my garden..

Here a picture of my tank. It's very hard to get good photos of my fish. They're those orange blurs in the picture above.

What I used in my custom aqua-aero-soil smartpots, for the bottoms. Roots grow right threw it, but not soil.

I'm confused again, I was expecting to see fish.

update: not sure how I missed those big orange things swimming in the water up there but I did.
I may not grow much of it but it's pretty good.

It's hard to make the fish sit still for the family photos, lol.

My new garden has 4×8×4 tank, and it's 60°f water, so the Shubunkins only come up occasionally. The Trout hide anytime I get close to the tank.

Here's a couple pictures of my Shubunkins when they were younger and in a smaller 150gal tank. If you wanna see my Trout, you'll have to check out some of my videos on youtube.

I use one large fish tank and pump the water to all the other rooms and filters using a 5100GPH pump. It's a beast.
I use two large filters, one is a bio-filter, the other is a swirl filter; both made DIY from 1000 liter IBC totes.
I also split the flow so it travels to the filters and the rooms seen in the pictures above.

My aero chambers are made from 24 inch road culvert, and are 10 feet long, with 5 plants in each row.

fascinating. the culvert part looks almost aeroponic but those aren't misters, they look like sprinkler heads
and I was imagining fish swimming amongnst the roots harhar
so you don't have to feed anybody? just maintain the water in the uh, rez, uh aquarium?

oops, youtube link up there has answers, wait, what? soil?

I don't think you can get much more organic than this:

Im too unorganized in my documentation to start a journal. I like just posting the important stuff, and letting people pick and choose the things that they like.
