It's a good thing, correct? I tried watching television last night, wow! Unbelievably boring.

When you do wicking beds in aquaponics are you cycling the water back to the fish after going through the dirt or does that have its own sump which just recirculates the wicking beds?

It just has its own sump that way if your plants need spraying it doesent harm the fish
The two sumps are exactly the same height so water can flow between the two :thumbright:

Looks interesting, don't see that many auto pot setups :). What are you using for preventing the roots from plugging things up?

Makes sense. thanks :thumbright: . Are you pumping up to another tank and then gravity feeding to the auto pots or is it straight to the auto pots from the sump?

nice glass house you have their , something I have been meaning to do for growing microgreens
thinking about doing up an 20 foot trailer / shipping container


have you thought about an air pruned wicking system , it's essentially what I use here
an tray for water to flow through with an geofabric walled bag for holding media sitting in the tray
then you don't get root balls in your pots


ie) http://rootpouch.com/products


it was a cold morning here today as well and I thought I lost 99% of my fish as only a handful were moving

the rest were side ways upside down and vertical


after checking PH / Ammonia and Nitrates then asking what was in last night food scrapes
( ie any clover used )
turned out the heater has been unplugged ...
(oh yeh the grinder was used the other week ... :whistle: )

spent the day boiling water and adding into tank to bump up the temp at least it's in the 20's again and looks like I only lost a few of the smaller ones ,
very grateful my first generation are still alive needing them for breeding :P

another reason I am seriously considering going full vermiponics
worms will live through QLD winter just need to keep the BSF running

At the moment the auto pots will run off there dedicated 60 litre tanks
The sump will be part of the aeroponics setup later
