Aquaponics : Sump Tank

Have the water filter shifted to the main System attempting to have the water filtered;however, put on hold as another idea popped out, think of testing on the new individual pumps set for the growbed. The purpose is to see how effective the growbeds in filtering the water. 

My guess will be the growbeds will get dirty and that might be the reason we should start planting more from now on.

Aquaponics : A Mini Swirl Filter

Just DIY a mini swirl filter for the gutter System to replace the conventional filter.

Due to Our setup, it might not be as good as it should be as our inflow is actually coming from the water pump rather than directly from the fish tank. Anyway, let's observe it.

Aquaponics: Duckweed Tank

Taken out our Super Good water filter from the duckweed tank and would let it run without filter for observation.

We might place a mini swirl filter in future.

Not to forget the new net cover on top of it...

The coming plan as shared before we will move all the Jade perches into this tank.

Aquaponics: Tilapia

Just added 300 tilapia into the main system. Our aquaponics is now getting ready to roll for the year 2016.

This tank is too small for the volume of 150 will shift them from time to time. 

Duckweed in the tank...with tilapia?

Aquaponics : Taller Tank

Have 'fallback' the water outflow for taller tank (Swirl Filter) to the original setup to ensure faster flow to the main tank. This is to cater for more aeration for the incoming 100 tilapia.

Aquaponics : Growbed Three

Have one of the cherry tomato plant lifted from the growbed.

We have now a ladyfingers and another cherry tomato.

Recently, we have been tight up with infra activity.

Observed that from the main system nutrition inefficiency is worsen, where we have only few fishes and in the rainy season.

We are planning to get more fishes in the coming one or two weeks.

As for the gutter system, we will have another round of shifting its fish tanks before we started to grow again.

Aquaponics : The Most Happening Growbed in Our System

Growbed Seven is the most happening growbed we have now in our system...

It consists of plants like cherry tomato, lettuces, and sweet potato leaf.

We are planning to plant a passion fruit in the coming future for our new roof... Passion fruit is always my favorite and hopefully its root system is not as complicated as the luffa.

Aquaponics : Can we stop talking about Luffa?

...still fruiting... up to now, we have 'pulled off' about 47 Luffa from the plant...and now another 13 are hanging around... it doesn't look like it is gonna end soon.

Aquaponics : What do we have in Growbed 5 and 6?

The cherry tomatoes...

Aquaponics : Collecting Seeds - First Attempt

Time to collect seeds for the old lettuces in growbed seven. 

Keep them in the plastic bags....
Let's see if this is the right way...will improve from this attempt from time to time. 

Aquaponics : Growbed Four - Clean up

Looks like too many leca...

Flood it with water and remove about an inch of leca.

Slides of garlic, pepper powder and Red pepper (optional)


Pepper Powder 

Garlic 1 2 3

Mix'em up...

Aquaponics : Baby Tilapias

Spotted many baby tilapias stranded in the water filter; what we have done was shifting them to the main and taller tank in the main system.

In coming weeks, we will start to deploy more tilapias into the main system as it has been running with few fishes since a month ago.

Aquaponics : Luffa - The Never Ending Story

The condition of the growbed two.. We have root all the way up from the bottom. As of now we only fill the growbed with water once a day. 

It looks like it is still able to grow new fruits...

Growing and growing and growing... 

Last two for our loofah...which grow aquaponically... 
PS: We have been running this system for almost a month without fishes...

Aquaponics : Lettuce Seeds

Lettuces in Growbed Seven are now old enough to supply us seeds.... Will start to harvest during the weekend. 

Sunday, November 22, 2015

Aquaponics : Luffa - Second Last Harvest

This will be the second last harvest for this season. Anyway, don't think there will be any new plan for this... aquaponically... 

We still have 10 left hanging around... And have the growbed stuck again a week ago... We will start harvesting in liquid form until then... 

Aquaponics : Luffa - Trick

From what I have been going thru, the color of loofah is depending on when the luffa is harvested.

For the lighter color loofah, you need to harvest it before it is dried off and turned brown color.

Do correct me if I am wrong...

Aquaponics : The Duckweed Tank and the Growbed Seven

Old lettuces from growbed seven are the food for the fishes in the duckweed tank. 

Since weeks ago, we've been feeding these adult tilapias with veggies and duckweed as it is time to put them on the table. 
The feedback from the previous batch which we sold/given away was not meeting our expectation. We will start to give away the second batch this week.
