QuantumBunk: By the way your illustration is fantastic!!! Now I just need to get a good
intro on how to turn my 15 x 20' plot, into a vertically oriented
Aquaponics ecosystem where the fish plants and water symbiotically
cooperate so that I can harvest food during all four seasons. Thx!!!!
wateronly: Very Nice
POVadventure: How low does the water get in your fish tank? I plan on building a similar
system but I am concerned that my fish might get too low on water if both
of my grow beds fill up at the same time.
QuantumBunk: What if I want to grow food and fish during winter spring summer and fall?
Vertical orientation aqua politics. I only have a 15 x 25' plot. I heard
about systems that not only symbiotically nourishing feed the fish, where
the fish also provide fertilizer for plants, but it also purifies water!!!!
I need to make a makeshift greenhouse? Right? Any info on how to get
started is greatly appreciated!!! Thx!!!
James Main: Great video. Nice and mellow just getting your point across. It work just
Bell siphons are great. Kids can learn from it. Now it only us adults can
LegendStormcrow: Your instructions were great and you served dual purposes with helping the
orphans and teaching us. I'm sad they didn't attend to it but I applaud
your savvy. At least this wasn't wasted. The wife and I are working on
getting our first home and I wanted to apply this to her gardening.
Mark Whitworth: Yes they look good. They work on a small scale. You would starve waiting
for fish or veggies to grow to full term. When a catastrophic event happens
power goes out. Solar power need to set up for power source. Need to make
it bigger .Plants need 70 to 90 days Survival mean being smart. First get
at least one year of survival food. Plus Beans Rice Water. If you live in a
city. Make plans on getting out. Anarchy is horrible. Have a place to meet
your family at. Plus weapon's for security. Hard work.So get started .
pranjal86able: how was the results. I want to do exactly what you did so if you think you
would have changed something to make it better please tell me. greatly
appreciate you doing this for a good cause
skytheinfinite: Very interesting! Thank you very much for showing it in real time-ish. Very
good, thank you.
Adrian Tang Yuk: very interesting bro, gonna attempt this now!
Sugriv Mckevin: You probably can build the indoor garden which doesn't require weeding,
tilling or cultivating, the spreading of fertilizer or compost, without
watering or irrigating; all when your plants yield up to 10 times the
amount of vegetables than plants from a dirt garden.
Xam Takorian: Very cool. I so want to do this now.
Lasker Saw: Hi hi Saeid, just a quick question .. do you happen to know anywhere in
Penang we can find Hydroponic Fertilizers? There are plenty of normal soil
based fertilizer but damn it is hard to find hydroponic stuff in Penang ..
I think in Malaysia too.
Mohamed Nedal: Hi , I made the same Bell siphon design , but I found that when the water
level exceeds the height of the inner grey tube , the water begin to fall
into the tube as it is supposed to work ..
But it is stopped siphoning when the water level became the same as the
height of the inner grey tube and the grow bed remain full of water to its
half volume .
What should I do in this case ?
Nate Hoyt: Brilliant!!
john smith: Like it nice and simple. How do you manage solid waste build up?
ang khol: Thank you for your video. Can i build 1 just what you have done? and also
cud i use gravel instead of media? cause we don't have any. your video is
very helpful.. thanks. here from Philippines.
satori san: I'm very interested in an explanation of your aquaponics video. Can tell
me, where I can buy that used hydroton as a medium for plants. In the near
term, I would like to try it in my country, Indonesia. Thank you.
Ashley Stanley: love how you explain everything! great tutorial, will be doing this myself!
growownfood: A flood and drain system have two chief parts - a fish tank and a grow bed.
The grow bed is filled with expanded clay balls and is situated above the
fish tank. Water from the tank is pumped into the grow beds then allowed to
return to the fish tank. These flood and drain stages are controlled by
using an automatic siphon. This switching between flooding and draining is
TheThugNation.com: What are the sizes of the pvc used for the bell siphon?
Edgar Gasper: Hey mate. From Penang Island as well. Was wondering where you managed to
find the grow media in the end.
BTW glad i found your vid :) great stuff. Cheers!
matrix ahmed: great
Jesse Stechman: whats the difference between bubbleponics and aquaponics
Albert dela cruz: can the seeds be sown directly into the growing beds?
Becky Marion: This is so good! Thank you! do you have the supplies written down to
access? I would like to take the list to the store with me...
Thanks again, this is so easy to understand. Looking forward to moor
firoz osman: the best and simplest aqaponics vid ive seen EVER. Thank you for sharing.
Kathy King: That is incredible - great job. I want to build something like this. I live
in Canada and I want to be able to bring it in the house in the winter so I
can continue to grow plants. I would imagine I would then need grow lights
Power Tools Lanka: very Useful!!!!!
Nicole Laird: Thank you so much for this video! I have gone through dozens of videos and
some were nice but too pricey or took special machinery that made it seem
pretty impossible. I saw your video and was completely inspired to get
started on my aquaponics immediately. I am a beginner to this process so
your informative and step by step video was very valuable not to mention
you made this system for such a good cause. Bless you and keep up the
Alina Moon: that was so cool i need to make one...for that price i think i can have a
Chris Edwards: I've watched this video dozen of times. Great tutorial.
Tan Johnny: I will like to buy one set of the system
Please email to this email Kleintech@yahoo.com
Derrick Bishop: Thank you for your informative and well explained video. I now understand
the mechanics of the water flow and will attempt to do one for myself
Variable: It must have been an effort holding that camera and be informative at the
same time. Also I was wondering where your were building your system until
you said Penang. Perhaps another video with the whole thing operational
after a few months?
thanks for your upload.
Ryeland Ternasky: what you should do since you fill both grow beds at the same time is get a
holding tank so the water circulates so the water level doesn't get too
Joe Schmoe: if the drop from the grow bed was high enough, would you need an airstone,
like with a venturi
Robert Giese: This is an excellent video that fully explains how to set up a home
aquaponics system. I'll start using it myself. The only thing I would
advise is to have someone else do the camera work so you are not limited to
just one hand. Keep up the good works.
Jake Thomas: best explanation of how to build a system I've found. Now I feel like I can
actually build my own. Thanks!
dražen valentić: Do you have an air pump, air stone for fish?
Alex Rochon-Terry: Would you be able to post a written list of the materials you used? Love
Troy Jones: Great video
MrVitan: thanks for the video, I just dont get it why you make double bed system
when you could have made 1 twice as big bed surface and double volume and
Deepak Varde: Hi Saeid, your video is indeed very inspiring and i would certainly try to
implement this. I have just one question. With all the fish poop going into
the clay, wouldnt it get dirty too quickly? is it advisable to put some
filter or some kind of sieve that would help reduce the poop going into the
clay? Please suggest.
ima god: we need more people like you in this world, giving without wanting, great
job, you've made the world a little better then it was before, keep up the
KingdomOriginators: What a noble idea...thank you for sharing
Saeid Momtahan: Going back and forth to the hardware store is half the 'fun' You will do a
lot of work before you can have a successful Aquaponics system. Building it
is the easy part. So get on it and do it
Saeid Momtahan: Andres, I have been travelling too much in the past few years and haven't
been able to stay with any of my systems for more than a few weeks. So the
results were not good. I'm hoping in the next month I'll be able to make a
simple one and stay with it for a few months. I'll be posting videos on it,
so please check back or subscribe to be updated. SAeid
