Hello
Going slow but getting there.
Mainly building after work. Will try and finish the frame this weekend and then cover it with a mix of wood and synthetic grass during next week. Decided on a glass fish tank since it will not get any direct sunlight so algea should not be a problem :dontknow:

Hey Bam Bam,
that looks really good can't wait for the next installment.
Are those treated SA pine battens you've used?
If so make sure the water does not come into contact with them.
They have got cyanide and lots of other nasty kak in them that's bad for the fish.

Hey the link to the bike aquaponics thread is here:

Good day all
Thank you for the feedback
SB yes totes looks good. Filled them with hydroton and water and they only bulge a little on the long sides
Will make a plan :think:
Mr P I hear you. Was a concern but wood will be treated and not near any water. (Should I do more?)

Murphys law
When you can not sleep at night thinking of how you are going to attack the AP build tommorow they phone you 06:00because there is a major breakdown and being the good guy (read not on standby) that you are......you help till 14:00.
So hopefully photo attaches itself of what I have been doing between the Currie Cup final and the fire for the braai .although it looks like "what is this guy doing" it will make sense in time I hope.
BTW Mr P where did you get the IBC and if I may ask how much?
Good day to all.

I actually skollied them of a guy on the bike forum who went commercial and had a 100 sets (750 tank 250 growbed)
The ones I got for my 1st client build I got from a place in Beaconvale and they were about R850 ex vat I really wanted the black ones and apparently they are quite rare.

Long while since I last posted. Daddy bought a new toy so been busy. (See photo attached) Got to work on the AP project . A few photos. ((I know its Pine and there is a lot of nasty s#*t in it but it will be sealed and no water will come into contact with it)) Can not get some one to build a 120L glass fish tank custom build with a hole for the SLO to go through. Will use a 210L drum (cut to size)with window to see the the little poop machines with fins. Enjoy!!!

Slowboat I changed the 3 little square totes (120L) for 3 oval totes (150L). They are more robust (for lack of a better word)

Oh yes, did I mention. This one not even finished and already bought a 1000L hydroton for my outside system. Still checking sun position and the perfect place to set that one up.........
But first the BABY

1000l of Hydroton, if you don't mind me asking, what did that cost?
Best price I could find down here was R450 ($45)/50l that's R9000 ($900)

Hello all
Photos so far of NFT. Still a way to go. Will get there someday.Still need to do pipe work ,cut holes for net pots and finishing off on outside box. NFT is boxed in but will be easy to remove for cleaning/inspection.
Luckily I am a patient man
