... I want a big greenhouse something fierce. If I continue to stall on projects all Winter I may be able to save enough to hire an excavator and then build another earth-sheltered greenhouse. I like that earth-sheltered reduces heat loss to a negligible amount. Brian.

... :) . I have read quite a few of the other posts on here about other systems and the ebb and flow in a media bed seems to be the most popular but then I see that most commercial systems are using the DWC method is there a reason other than commercially most farmers are producing leafy greens in ...

... the ph is down to 7.5 and ammonia 1ppm. No nitrite showing up but there is 0.5 nitrates, at first i was pleased thinking its cycling already but then realised thats probably from the rain water. Only feeding then a very light amount once per day, they dont come up to surface to pick at food they ...

... sump/bio filter, my plan is to incorporate some sort of solids filter at this stage, this somewhat filtered and biologically treated water will then be pumped into my grow beds (I'm aware that two tanks will require more beds hence the addition of filters), I intend to have these set up as flood ...

... my post here lol, In my defence I saw this design on you tube and they described it as such . The pump takes the water directly out of the FT and then Tees off left to the not Nft and the other to the Gb's and dutch buckets , it runs pretty rapidly through the tubes of the not Nft which are 100mm ...

... inside if the pipe is thin. How does the water run/pool in the tubes ? Often members find best to run the reverse way - through the media beds and then on to the tubes and back to the fish tank. Often the media filter is sufficient - it also provides for the ammonia-nitrate conversion which wont ...

... set up your system... the layout and if running constant flood or flood and drain with bell syphons (or standpipe with a hole and a timed pump). Then people can give good advice about how it will all work - including where to put the pump and if a float switch is needed. Not sure if you've had ...

Hi guys and thanks for your advice, looks like there will be no tilapia going into my system then. I do plan on filtration, as I don't have much space to have more grow beds, (areas with enough sunlight and space for the little one to play have left me wanting lol). I ...

... Increasing the Amm level won't speed up the cycling process. ALL you need to worry about is watching your Amm doesn't approach a toxic level and then also watching out for the Nitrite spike and being prepared to act quickly when it happens. If the Nitrite reaches 1.0ppm add sea salt at 1gm per ...

... has been good with the new system all in all I think. I have had to add aereation to the fish tanks. First all my crayfish died one by one, then one tank had fish dying without any signs of why. I discovered that the affected tank had the slowest water flow and since the crayfish are more ...

... to be a long term breeding tank... need a larger tank if you think you are going to do that... would be better to breed them in a separate tank then just add them to the feeder bottle as they run low. http://www.thereeftank.com/forums/f76/bbs-doser-for-mandarins-and-seahorses-212169.html
