Re: The Official Aquaponics Thread #3
Brilliant thread Onyxia! One day when I have more time and space I would love to give something like this a go

It won't be under a hood. The tank will be open topped with a luminaire as while I really like the idea of growing plants up top, I don't want to reduce the tank water level by too much as I still want a decent amount of fish in the water. So I don't think high humidity plants are an option.

In your larger set up what are the plants actually planted in? Or are they purely growing in the water? How do you hold them in place? I see the diagram has planting media, but how do you stop that from being washed into the tank? I'm probably missing something obvious, as I'm well-known for that (ask my OH)


FL, if I'm not mistaken, Onyxia has the same tank as me, an APS with the internal filter built into the hood as a tray system. I have a couple of pics of my hood from my original setting up blog, one of the basic trays that sit side by side on a runner within the hood (with an access flap/lid) and then one of the plastic baskets that sit inside these trays. I think Onyxia has the baskets in the trays, and has added a planting medium of some sort to the basket for the plants to take root in. The spraybar then lies across the top so the water trickles through the planting medium.

But wasn't Piglet being harassed to the point of exhaustion by another boy?

I take it there were tubercles? I love the way goldies decide after we've settled on their gender to go 'Surprise! I'm <opposite gender>!'


Eerrrr.....yes...Piglet is still being harassed to the point of exhaustion by the boys, only know she/he is exhausted WITH tubercles!

I've had him 3 years and this is the first sign he has shown! If I didn't know better I could (almost) believe the notion that goldfish can change gender. In the last 8 months my tank of 'three girls plus Carlos' have one by one decided they would all rather be boys

Re: Whats the weather like where you are #8
Plenty snow here! Attached is this afternoon's achievement... As I am a tad 'artistically challenged' I have coupled it with a picture of what it is MEANT to look like in case it isn't obvious what it is
