... move the water from the sump/fish tank to the beds, and how does it get back? I know you can use gravity and elevation to produce pressure, but then you need some type of pump to fill your sump/cistern/uphill vessel up?? I've seen systems with very small pumps, but haven't seen any with no pumps...unless ...

... plants effectively filter the water. In my experience with planted fish tanks, 1 big plant does more for removing nutrients and cleaning the water then a bunch of small ones. I have not done dutch buckets, but I do have plants growing out of every filter on my aquariums, everything from pothos ...

... turning 30 in December. Mauritius economy revolved around a Sugar cane industry, and in the early 1980s, we entered into the Textile industry. Then we became an acclaimed touristic destination. Since 2000, we are trying to become a finance center/information hub. Fact is, in the space of one ...

... is key for plant growth. 20 to 25 litres of rocks per 1 fish is the equation. So if you have a growbed (say 1mx1m IBC tank) that was 300mm deep then that is 300/25 = approx 12 fish I like the CHIFT PIST version where it overflows form the fish tank (no pump pumping the fish tank dry if you have ...

Thanks Brian, that's comforting. I've had good luck with the smaller ones. What type of ceramic diffusers are you using? Are they longer lasting/better then conventional airstones? Been researching the tubing, but it seems like it will not help in keeping tanks clean.

... good reviews. I have to agree with you Stuart, usually good tools are the best investment. An Eastswing hammer that costs $30.00 is simply better then the $10.00 Stanley hammer. Same with mechanics tools. Snap-On & Matco are pricey, but warranty and quality are worth it to someone who makes ...

The rat comes and visits nightly, stands in front of the camera, then buggers off. It is mocking me, and ignoring the traps. On the bright side, it has let some of my plants recover, but i need to put some more in soon. I might get some tomatoes started ...

... might be the way to go. On the other hand if you're worried about kids you might want the shelves.
