Savage eating: Thanks for the video I breed rainbow trout and this would work great for
the trout fingerlings.
Ladyshystar: I think that even I can manage this. Thank You :-)
William Pfeiler: Great job, Saeid! I really enjoy your videos, they are both educational
and inspiring! Keep up the great work! God bless you.
Ken Toogood: Saeid, re the syphon is there an optimum cycle time? My existing pond pump
is quite powerful and with the present flow rate the box would probably be
filling and emptying every few minutes or so.
eriqu3: Hello Saeid,
Thanks very much for sharing the video. I went to CPS hoping to check out
the system but I couldn't find the system there. The staff not too sure
about it either. Where did you place the system at CPS?
By the way, I am having hard time locating the shop that sells hydroton in
Penang. Do have any contacts for that in Penang? Thanks again!
Ken Toogood: Saeid,
enjoyed your video but why the need for a syphon system and the fill empty
cycle. Would it not work with a continuous trickle feed?
I AM: Great work and wonderful explanation- thank you for teaching how to fish :)
Jason Wood: Very well done and thank you for your tutorial step by step on your system.
I look forward to following your growth of both plants and expansion of
your Aquaponics system. My only piece of advice is to stagger flood and
drains to keep the fish reservoir a little more habitat for the fish a
little happier and add an air source for the fish like a bubbler. This is
one of the best DIY AP systems I have seen in years! Keep up the good
SidOhzen: Nice video bro. Simple but covered all parts and function. Well done. I
noticed that your water level is a bit high - the top pebble shouldn't get
wet or horrible stuff grows and smells bad. Otherwise best of luck. What
country has 'ringetts'?
Dennis Hardwick: For around $130 and 3 hours of your time, you can build a portable
aquaponic system in your home or apartment that will produce organic plants
This is probably the easiest system for producing organic food you can
make. There’s very little maintenance as the system is a miniature,
Adrian X: i think fish need light bro
Jerry Wei Jie: Great sharing. Thanks Saeid.
I am from Penang, Malaysia.
Actually i was planning to build one aquaponic system too.
Jeremy Flener: I know this is an old video but your water level is too high. The water
should never reach to the top of the substrate. You want it an inch below.
Your plants will rot.
kbbacon: That is great! Now I have to build one!
Russell Grier: this is great man where can i buy the stuff
Lisa E. Miller: I've down on paper the in depth DIY aquaponics plan that all beginner can
Chaya Susanne Golan: really well done, thank you for sharing
Joel Valdez: Best video ive seen all day
Steve Knight: Thankyou Saeid, great video. How did the kids like it?
Siti Khadijah Abd: Hello Saeid, thank you for sharing the idea. I am planning to make one at
my backyard in Putrajaya. The problem is where to get the gravel. Its made
of clay right? Is it possible to change it to compost or coconut fiber?
Kain Young: *Foraging in the city*
Being an urban prepper you can of course forage on the streets in case
you're hungry. Just search something like "urban prepper forage" on youtube
and you'll get plenty of information on what to eat, not to eat and you'll
learn to always keep *the pee-line* in mind when foraging the city.
Foraging is in my opinion not at an option when shtf, be it wrol or no
wrol. The only reason why it works *right now* is because you're probably
the only nut (I say that jokingly) in the city that does so. But by the
time everyone starts eating the greens, there won't be any left within a
A better plan is needed. One plan that will very like work is home
aquaponics. Ie, growing your own food inside the house using a closed
system that recycles water between your grow bed and an aquarium. I haven't
tried this yet, but I´m very tempted to invest some time in it to see if I
can get this working inside an apartment.
Any of you have experience on this?

Darius Ruckers: this would be a cool system for a back yard pond and for fish
wendel C: does the siphon drain all the water out or is it only up to the stand pipe?
sorry. i dont know a lot about plumbing.
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!!!!
Joshua W: The best basic system I've seen man, great job!
Mohammedali Ali: Easy and fantastic class theaorical and practical...Thanks alot....i lool
lots from the e.net but you amazing....
Deanne Jones-Blakemore: This was the best visual I have seen for the bell siphon.
DJ McBall: I want to try this so bad! Do you have a materials list?
Janet Wright: Excellent job! This is one of the clearest videos I have seen for a
beginner. I love how you showed all of the products and explained the
siphon system. It would be so easy to increase your grow space by stair
stepping your grow beds so that the water flows from one to another.
Dark Edge: Man, that was a great job explaining all that, it is simple, you just got a
new subscriber for this, I like you did it for kids too, I would like to
see this system all over the world, it could really help a lot of people,
add solar power and a computer with software for language translation, some
way to hook into the internet and we have what I call an Internet Oasis,
wouldn't that help pull the planet together into a big family! I may try to
start that very thing, contact me if you wnt to help design a system with
me. Thanks for your vid!
Jack Vigil: You have the best tutorial video that I have seen so far! I can't wait to
get my system up an running!
dannyinaus: Awesome video and way easy to set up your own aquaponics
Akins Cator: You really can build your backyard that won't need weeding, tilling or
cultivating, the spreading of fertilizer or garden compost, without any
watering or irrigating; all when your vegetables generate up to 10 x the
amount of vegetables than plants from the dirt garden.
DURGANBUILT: Nice job, and for a great cause.
Thomas J. Scharmann: Couldn't bee any easier. Grow your own food.
Guillermo Pro: Giggling. 545 bbji9!!!&4
David Morales: Great video!
Sandro Rizzo: Semplice ed efficace
ReikiBuddha: Hopefully all the plastics are PCB free
Michel Vaillancourt: Just saw your video for the first time. First of all, bravo! This is a
great little set up and your willingness to put it together for charity
reasons is wonderful.
A couple of suggestions, based on my experience:
1) if you can avoid using the metal hose fittings, do so ... the
galvanizing/ anti-weathering coating can poison your fish, which is no fun.
2) if you can, add about another 20mm of hydroton (grow media) to your
system so that the water level is below the surface. This avoids problems
with algae/ green slime. Also, it will stabilize the mass by preventing
the media floating.
3) if you know the amount of water you have in the fish tank, then that is
the number of litres minimum size for your grow beds. Depending on your
fish, you can go twice that many liters.
All in all, I love the design. Simple, elegant and very well explained. I
look forward to seeing an update of the system in place and running at the
Donielle Stevens: Hi there! We had some questions about our Aquaponics Chop2 System, any way
you could take some time and give us advice? Thanks!
Aquaponics Chop2 System @ the Food Hub Dome
WalkTheDreamscape: Not to be picky saeed, but you are interested in hydroponics. Aquaponics is
a discipline of hydroponics, a hybrid of two growing methods. Don't let the
simplistic nature of aquaponics, and the fish, trick you into thinking this
isn't hydroponics. Hydro to the core baby. Nice vid by the way, super
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.
Gary Green: I'm in KL. Any idea where I can find grow media and a pump down here?
Thanks. I think what you've done is fantastic.
mat max: keep it up man
rose walker: And if I want to do multipule grow bed; how many can I set up per fish
tank? What type of fish can I use? Is there a aquaponic system guide for
David Needler: Great video! I thoroughly enjoyed watching it.
