Here's my Indoor setup:
-4x 10gal.. Fish/Nursery Tanks
-1x 75gal.. Main Fish Tank

Am using 2x small pumps less then 300gph each pumping up at 5' to 5.5'ft high.
The filter is home made using 3x 5gal..buckets that i will be updating after over a year in use.

Here are some pic.. you can see my cheery tomato, going from the 75gal..tank that's in a 2" net pot on a floating bed out the window. I post more pic..later it's been raining for days here.

Here look at my filter setup going to be remaking the filter. On the first stage i never add-it cement to make bottom into a cone shape, so i have a lot solids that stay around the bottom of the bucket. On i have starting from the top i have pads then 1lbs. of ceramic (can shape) then 1lbs. of bamboo carbon. Last stage holds bio-balls (20pcs 1 1/2") and 2x pumps (less than 300gpheach). The video show the waste (smalls bad) that's settling from last Sunday.

Here the video showing the fish waste

It's good to see a tomato successfully growing almost media free.

It makes me think mine might work :)

Yes, the tomato were doing good till the hornworm showed up. So get some dipel dust and it's been working great. I had cut about half of the tomato plant off cause of the hormworm, eat all the leaves and left only the stems. Then the yellowing start it so got some maxicrop liquid seaweed with 2% iron, so lets see if can get her back growing tomato again. The roots are huge all most half the tank :shock: The cucumber seemed to not do well in DWC so i lost them.
