Folks have been asking for parts lists and drawings on how to put this together. So I've (finally!) put together a parts list, complete with links to the product pages for these bits on the Home Depot website. These are the links and prices in December 2011 - I'll try to update the links as they change over time. Bernoulli Standpipe Bell Siphon - the Parts List
Growing Rice with Aquaponics It is a common fact that growing rice requires enormous amounts of water and other nutrients too. The paddy fields are always laden with water. A very recent branch of science known as aquaponics is fast emerging as a step to grow in-house a part of the rice consumed in homes.

This summer, twenty little Blue Nile Tilapia were hand delivered to my door. I had given up all hopes of finding a supplier in Canada, and was thrilled when I found one near my home. The fish spent their summer growing out in the greenhouse where our first aquaponic system was made. Once the cooler temperatures of September came around, we relocated them inside to a 100-gallon stock tank (giant water bowls for cows and horses).

Growing Power: Urban Aquaponics, Vermiculture and Sustainable Agriculture
Aquaponics A recent Treehugger article alerted me to the fact that the folks at Growing Power are involved in what sounds to be a very exciting new proposed project in Milwaukee, called The Urban Agriculture Center. The planned center will apparently feature a 150,000-sq ft indoor aquaculture/agriculture facility combined with educational facilities, sustainable farming exhibits, a restaurant and fish market. As the author of the Treehugger article points out, the Urban Agriculture Center website is somewhat confusing, so it is quite challenging trying to find pertinent information regarding the status of the project.

ECOLIFE Foundation - San Diego: Village Aquaponics Aquaponics is the symbiotic cultivation of plants and aquatic animals in a recirculating environment. ECOLIFE has installed an aquaponics system at our San Diego office with the specific goals of preparing a manual and techniques for managing an aquaponics system, teaching aquaponic workshops to the San Diego community as a sustainable living solution, and developing a system for use abroad that will provide an alternative food source for communities in Bwindi, Uganda. Water is cycled between the fish tanks and vegetable growing areas, and fish waste acts as a natural fertilizer for the crops.
University of Hawaii and community partners explore aquaponics | Malamalama, The Magazine of the University of Hawai'i System Clyde Tamaru stands on a small rise, dense trees and the verdant Windward face of the Koʻolau range behind. He looks across a grassy area dotted with round water tanks of various construction, rows of raised plant beds, a small garden shed and, off to the right, a taro loi, all part of an aquaponics research and demonstration facility tucked at the back of Windward Community College. “This is our ahupuaʻa,” the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources extension specialist says with evident pleasure.
