Hi this is my first system
Three grow beds with 1 1/2 gravel at base, and 3/8 gravel at top at a ratio of 1/4 at bottom to 3/4 on top
one wading pool for fish and floating raft and main fish tank
I have 5 kois 5-7 inches long still working out bugs
But i am offshore and cant wait to get back to system

looks very good pablo :)

you might want to place a wedge block of wood or something under the barrel beds on the open side to prevent a young child from pulling one over and off the tyres. :wink:

only a 24 hour construction~

what do you do offshore pablo?

Thanks
I am a survey tech based on land but due to short staff i am out at sea

I kinda shocked the system by not letting any cycling time to happen but i used some fountain water from my parents with fish in it directly over the grow bed what i heard that lettuce not doing so good but i think its too early to say, all other plants ok and fish are fine. I am only able to flood twice a day morning and evening and i set up a slow drain . ( my wife i mean) and i am going to supply air to grow beds vai air stones already in place

Well i had to move and dismantle my system BUT a month ago i reassemble and my home and started cycling with about 7 fish baby coys, also the existing coys are in my aquarium home and i wanna start a mini system with this tooo but i need some help
I have seed for plants and was wondering how to start them in the system. My mini grow bed with out gravel or perilite (which we dont have in Trinidad) can i circulate water in the grow bed and set seed in cotton just barely above the water level line
Thanks
