    Nice vid. but I have one question, what do you put inside the bed rack? is it garden soil? stone? or what? coz everytime? I watch aquaponics videos I am always puzzled what to put inside the bed rack for veges..

    first off let me just say very good presentation on this and am looking forward into building my own which will probably turn into a bunch of them lol, but wanted to answer some ?’s people were asking like? how to power it, you can buy solar panels that are more than capable of powering the pump for it and to solve the sun problem simply build in doors if you have the space and these products can be down sized just depends on what you are wanting to grow.

    The growbed on top is? your filter and the bacteria grows on the media in the growbed.

    excuse me i am new to aquaponics or even cultivation in general. from what i understand this system misses a part. don’t you need? a filter or a tank where bacteria can grow?

    Great? video. Thanks

    You can use “muck”? from an aquarium filter, or you can just leave it, the beneficial bacteria will seed it naturally, it may just take a little longer.

    This is brilliant. You’re amazing!

    It’s a great use of an IBC and they’re super cheap to pick up. Thanks? heaps for sharing the guide for free!

    For those of us that do not yet have an existing system, how would we “seed”? the tank?
    Thanks for all the information.
    Regards.

    If you look you can often find once used IBC totes for a lot less than? 300.

    Great vid…..nice? setup!!

  16. bartybollocks

    IBC $125 in Angaston South? Australia, much better than paramount br**ns!

    Very nice video. The best part of? aquaponics is the flexibility you have when creating a system. All you need is some creativity to work with your surrounding and anything is possible.

    Excellent, I can finally put the Mrs to work – may not have to divorce her after all.
    Best protect MY gonads and slip on my protective eyewear when I hand her the? angle grinder me thinks…
    You got that honey? I need 10 in a couple of hours…
    thanks for a great vid (from the Mrs)…

    Yes they can degrade after a few years in the? sun, if you download the manual we talk about painting or cladding your system for the long term.

  20. backyardaquaponics

    Yep, I’ve used bell siphons before but a stand pipe is simpler in the long run.?

  21. audiolabguy

    I? never have a problem finding them in VT on Craigslist. Good luck!

  22. oyinmiebi

    This is a? great video, i learnt a lot. Thanks

  23. Purplehornet25

    well made video with great step-by-step instructions. thanks for the download manual.? kudos!

  24. FVNostrovia

    I just bought an IBC container. I have seen some setups that use a bell siphon. Have you tried that? I was? going to see how it looks when I recieve the tank.

  25. Informatively

    Those tanks look awesome? for aquaponics (cost of that unit $300?) and are expected in that application to have lots of light for the top plant tray I wonder how well they hold up? Plastics are notorious for turning into eggshells after a couple of years in direct sunlight. Most plastic is not UV friendly.
