... makes the difference is that my grow beds are organic. If you look at your grow bed as a battery for the plants and the fish waste as a charger then organic media has exceptional nutrient retention/release properties. The water coming out of the grow bed is nutrient poor regardless of the plant ...

If the tank is inside a GH or very well insulated, or better yet, both, you may be able to keep them above 60. But at 60, they aren't very happy. They usually slow or stop eating around 65, mine don't eat well until over 70, and then really kick in above 80.

no dont lie, thats not what said. :wink:

my old FTs (and ill make the new ones the same) were 1.3m high, thats high enough for a tower.

i dont have any growbeds right now, so they arent high enough really.

Or... there is always the fun of ferro cement. It is actually easier than one might think, and then there will be no stopping you from crafting all sorts of AP art.

... i would incorporate them into the gravity fed side of the system. e.g hanging from GB/FT sides and having overflows going straight to towers then common drain back to sump.

It's not the most efficient in terms of design, two pumps adds extra money for the pump itself, and then running costs for two pumps. Why don't you just make the bio filter a grow bed? Sounds like you're using the same thing anyway. I'd just pump from the ST to the FT, and ...

Unless you are good at cutting and heat bending find some PVC shower paneling cut to size and seal the ends ie glue them on. Then use uniseals to make your connections (I have never tried this with 10" so you will have to check that the uniseals will fit). Or just holesaw your 10" ...

... just plain good marketing, that is all. Now, if you are really looking to over winter your system by isolating the Grow beds from the fish tanks, then they need to be TWO separate systems that are joined. THe first system needs to be an RAS, it grows THE AMOUNT of fish YOU want it too. The second ...

Go and ask at a dedicated plumbing supply store. I'm sure they'll have them. Just check that they aren't horribly expensive, the pipes itself are usually the cheap bit, then the end pipes, joiners, elbows, t bends skyrocket the price.

What are your plans? Strawberry towers?

... I think a small pump pushes water from the sump into the tank, which causes overflow to go through the grow beds and back to the sump. Repeating. Then a T pipe at the top of the SLO will break the flow at the waterline when the sump pump losses power. If that is correct, than I'll ask my questions. ...

I got the spa for free, so keeping the whole project under $100.00 is the goal. $48.00 today in lumber, the hardiboard is scrap from RAS. ...
