Loretta Klosky: What kind of pipe is that? I am trying to find a bulk head fitting like
that and am having no luck.
kbbacon: That is great! Now I have to build one!
J. Lewis: 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
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?

lookatthebriteside: What lives in the dark a bucket with such intensive turbulent conditions?
Savage eating: Thanks for the video I breed rainbow trout and this would work great for
the trout fingerlings.
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!
Rey Lindsey: I love your Idea, never thought of it.However Im wondering what fish would
you grow and after they are big enough would you put grown fish in another
tank and use as needed , while while putting new fish in tank to grow? Im
new to this, so If Im a bit naive sorry. Seeking answers. ty for video.
Joshua W: The best basic system I've seen man, great job!
Ladyshystar: I think that even I can manage this. Thank You :-)
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!
abdullah alshehri: this is very useful ,I need to ask about feeding fish,do I have to feed the
fish or they get their food from the planets?
Russell Grier: this is great man where can i buy the stuff
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.
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
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'?
Steve Knight: Thankyou Saeid, great video. How did the kids like it?
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?
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.
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.
Darius Ruckers: this would be a cool system for a back yard pond and for fish
Jerry Wei Jie: Great sharing. Thanks Saeid.
I am from Penang, Malaysia.
Actually i was planning to build one aquaponic system too.
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,
DJ McBall: I want to try this so bad! Do you have a materials list?
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.
I AM: Great work and wonderful explanation- thank you for teaching how to fish :)
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!!!!
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.
Adrian X: i think fish need light bro
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!
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?
Chaya Susanne Golan: really well done, thank you for sharing
Sandro Rizzo: Semplice ed efficace
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.
Kenny Hawk: First off, i want to say i think its great you take the time to do
something for others! Thank you for that ;-) Second, great explanations,
and i will try to do this for myself ;-)
Lisa E. Miller: I've down on paper the in depth DIY aquaponics plan that all beginner can
St. Thomas Lee: Check out this video on YouTube:
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
DURGANBUILT: Nice job, and for a great cause.
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!

Guillermo Pro: Giggling. 545 bbji9!!!&4
Thomas J. Scharmann: Couldn't bee any easier. Grow your own food.
Bjorn De Boeck: Do I have to feed the fish? Planning on building this on my organic farm in
the Colombian jungle www.facebook.com/quebradadp
ozzymario: hi..is it you water level to high on the grow beds? for what i have seen in
other videos the water level should be under 11/2 or 2 inches of the
gravels, gravel should be dry on top...i guess you should cut the pipe from
your bell siphon a bit.
firoz osman: the best and simplest aqaponics vid ive seen EVER. Thank you for sharing.
Viro Gabales: Hi Saeid, one thing I notice is that you have pump out the water from your
fish tank... in which it may cause water deprivation to the fish, due to
the size of your fish tank. I suggest that you install another tank,
something like a holding and settling tank , then an over flow line from
your fish tank to the holding tank. Install your pump on the holding tank
and from there you can pump out water and supply it to the plants above and
drain siphon can be still follow your old setup and be directly lined to
the fish tank... while the overflow line from the fish tank will protect
the fish tank from over water.
