Edmonton Aquaponics - Project

Based on the CDC South model it will consist of 4 fish rearing tanks, another series of tanks for solids management, pumps and plumbing, and a raft tank for growing the veggies and herbs. The space is a south facing room with glazing on the south and west walls. It is located within the City of Edmonton's ACT Aquatic and Recreation Center at Rundle Park. There will be an opportunity to utilize some of the room for vermicomposting, seedling propogation, and water quality monitoring. Our goal is to ensure the space offers completely barrier free access. The location is perfect for providing visitors an opportunity for a side-trip to learn about our project even though they may have come onto the grounds and into the building for another purpose.

Floating Raft System. I've finally added floating rafts to my aquaponics system - pics and video below.

Floating Raft System

The basic setup consists of three 525-liter capacity beds, each with a fitted styrofoam sheet on top with holes for 18 plants on each raft: Water is continually pumped from the Sump (CHOP Mark II setup) to the fish tank, the two large gravel grow beds and to the floating raft system. The fish tank is fitted with an overflow pipe that continuously sends water through to to a Swirl Filter, and from there to the Sump. Water pumped from the Sump to the raft system travels through a Matala pond filter to remove suspended solids prior to entering the raft system. Water exiting the raft system and the gravel grow beds, returns to the sump.

Of course every properly before you started out people. This is therefore adjusting watering fertilizing a DO-IT-YOURSELF manual which will harm the fish. A nonprofit organization to develop and teach sustainable ways to grow food. The GP 5 Gallon UV Water Sterilizer was designed by Garden Pool’s Dennis McClung for the Garden Pool Haiti project to help provide clean water for the volunteers, patients and nearby residents of the Naturopath’s Without Borders‘ volunteer medical clinic in Haiti.

A nonprofit organization to develop and teach sustainable ways to grow food.

Clean water is very important as Cholera has contaminated the local water sources at the GP Haiti site. The Garden Pool Haiti project will not only bring sustainable food, medicinal herbs, and electricity to the medical clinic, it will also bring a new and easy to use water sterilization technology. This technology is modular, clinically effective, and easily replicable. UVC Germicidal Sterilization uses 20,000 times less energy than boiling water, is safe, leaves no taste, and uses no chemicals! Aquaponics System — Learn about Aquaponics Systems.

Moringa oleifera - a miracle plant as aquaponic fish food

It can also be grown as part of a living fence. Parts of Moringa used traditionally as human food are green pods, tender leaves, flowers, and oil from seeds. Moringa feeding frequency: Moringa is fed fresh tied as a bunch and dipped in the water. Fish eat them usually after about 12-14 hours. Fresh Moringa leaves are a highly nutritious feed supplement to the diet of herbivorous fish. Fresh Moringa leaves provide additional protein and vitamins that can improve the growth and health of these fishes. PS: Here is a link to one of my favorite recipes using drumstick leaves fried with eggs. Self Watering Organic Terrace Gardens, Organic Composters in India.

Toxic Plants around your Aquaponics System

Most plants are safe and toxic free but some species of flowering plants can be dangerous once the breeze catches them and they flutter down and land on your fish tank. Here’s a first hand example. Flowering Lillypilly We have a concrete block fence with a border of Australian Lilypilly’s surrounding the outside fence for added privacy. Lilypillys are a dense green shrub and not considered poisonous but once a year, around this time in March they flower a profusion of tiny fine white blossoms. 1920084_10151904029761861_1289288943_n. Affnan's Aquaponics: Water Usage Gauge - How Many Fish And Growbed ? Strap a graduated rod to the siphon for checking water usage by one growbed.

Affnan's Aquaponics: Water Usage Gauge - How Many Fish And Growbed ?

Alternatively you can stick a piece of plastic ruler to the side of the fish tank, don't have one at the moment. Needed to do this to find out how many growbed this single fish tank can safely support. Below is water level just before siphon start, that mean water is full inside the growbed. It stood at about the 140 mm mark. At siphon stop, that when you hear the burp sound is at 95 mm marking. Subtract 95 from 140 we get 45, so its 45mm or about 1.7 inches of water used for one of this growbed. BTW, its recommended that you turn the water minimum 4 times in an hour so, if the tank capacity is 100 gallon you should total pump capacity of at least 400 Gallon or about 1500 liter per hour.

So having 2 growbed with 1500 to 2000 Liter per hour flow rate is sufficient to get this size tank cycle at minimum 4 times per hour. What Is Aquaponics - Backyard Aquaponics. Aquaponics is essentially the combination of Aquaculture and Hydroponics.

What Is Aquaponics - Backyard Aquaponics

Both aquaculture and hydroponics have some down sides, hydroponics requires expensive nutrients to feed the plants, and also requires periodic flushing of the systems which can lead to waste disposal issues. Re-circulating aquaculture needs to have excess nutrients removed from the system, normally this means that a percentage of the water is removed, generally on a daily basis. This nutrient rich water then needs to be disposed of and replaced with clean fresh water. Home. Self-Sufficiency.

I was eagerly running the tests below when I started to explain my reasons for looking outside of conventional aquaponic methods to Rob Nash who questioned my reasoning. While writing I came full circle and saw that he was right. It comes down to adding more media beds not creating a great bio filter without plants I've been saying it's all about the Nitrates and began to see that as my primary goal.

I kinda got off track, and lost focus from the real goal which is to provide Nitrates to as much high density growing space as possible. Aquaponics Articles - Build Your Own Aquaponics.
