A fish tank you choose the size - I have a ten gallon Fish also your choice - You can use gold fish or an edible fish like tilapia Jiffy seed starter or what ever you use to start plants - I like these because they are easy to start seeds and easy to transplant Pea pebbles - There are several other mediums like clay pebbles, you could even try tank gravel. Air pump - I like one that has at least two out puts Air stones - One for each plant Aquarium T-Way Connectors - One for each plant Plastic Bottles no less than 1 litter 2 would be best - One for each plant Light source Timer Air line tubing the 8ft. line should be enough A cutting apparatus I chose a razor blade and I'm sure I will think of something else as I go along the way <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>

A simple 3D animation to show relative size and layout of the bookshelf aquaponic vertical growing unit. Here is the complete shelfponics system. Click the image to see full size. Here is a picture of the space we decided to add vertical growing. The yellow bucket is where we placed the bookshelf system.

Welcome back to the aquaponics revolution. In the last issue we talked about just what aquaponics is (the marriage of aquaculture and hydroponics) and how it works. I described system types and then went into some detail about the creatures that live in a media-based aquaponics system: fish, plants, bacteria, and worms.
What is an Aquaponic System and why would I want it in my house? Well the answer is three simple letters: USL! Hydroponics and Aquaponics are sustainable food production systems that combine a traditional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. Installing an aquaponic system is helpful for growing plants and fish in the winter climate which can sometimes be off-limits for growing anything. It took me a full days to do this, but it's worth it.
haha cool, funny thought there ;) Today at 12:02:30 AM I'd wave :) March 25, 2013, 09:18:46 AM I havent figured out what I'm going to say but in my head it would be really funny if when I first say 'aquaponics in paradise' if all the members attending did the wave, i'd laugh out loud.
CHOPS stand for Constant Height One Pump System, is Murray Hallam's System from Practical Aquaponics . This system reduce the number of pump required as in their earlier setup, and I can say its quite an ingenious system. Apart from the reduce number of pump to one, this system will make the fish more comfortable due to more water in the system and the level do not change much during operation. Below a simple diagram on the basic of CHOPS, in Murray's site there is a better illustration on the system. Note : To avoid confusion on CHOPS installation, please refer to Murray Hallam's DVD or his other instruction on how-to construct this system.
