  2. hallo.im majkl from croatia.i ve build a small aquaphonic system and i have
    one carp fish.the system is build very nice im proud of it.it works ok.im
    growing seeds in paper tishue,soil,mineral rochwool,im experementing with a
    lot of things.also with watering the seeds,soil,plants.i have cherry tomato
    and some other sorts of tomato,red,green,yellow,orange bell pepper,bhut
    jolokia,arigula,pickels and some other vegetables.but i have a sirious
    problem.the room temperature is near 15 celsius..it is the minimum i should
    have i know.its going to rise as the days go by.the soil im buying and i
    dont know if its nutrient sufishent,good or bad.the carp is a dirty fish i
    belive it gives me enough nutrients but the roots of the young plants dont
    reach the water jet.they all grow until 8-10 centimeters in height and then
    they start to die..what is the problem.i didnt want to invest in a mercury
    light and turn on the heat for that room to be warmer coz i dont have the
    money to waste.can you tell me whats seems to be the problem.do you have an
    idea.you can see my room system on facebook.
    https://www.facebook.com/zuljevic.majkl..give me an idea,i have a fish
    tank,the water flows into the pipe system and into another tank from witch
    a small pump pumps the water back to the carpfish.its pretty shity in
    croatia to find and buy all the things i need and the price is skyhigh.so a
    ph meter costs about 50 dollars and i earn per month 750 dollars.i want to
    live healthy and earn some cash so i can live without a debt.maybe have a
    family when im out of the debt.i hope its going to heappen before im 50
    years old.i need concrete answer no big literature.if you know how then
    help me..please..thanks.´╗┐

  8. The problem I see is the failure to reproduce the fishes natural food. I
    always see them feeding a grain infused pellet. This would seem to
    encourage a poor nutrient profile in the fish.

  9. If you don’t make a profit then how can you expand? If this movement is
    going to aggresively expand, then it has to be profitable. Of course, with
    the high taxation world wide, expansion is even harder.

  11. “what the hell are our universities doing” – Self preservation. The same
    thing we are all forced to do. Everyone has the same burden when money is
    the form of exchange.

  13. I really appreciated the explanation of which plants are used with ebb/flow
    or continuous flow techniques! Too bad they didn’t show any examples of
    deep water culture systems, unless I’m mistaken…

  17. For that size pond the grow beds would have about equal volume so about
    5000 gallons of growbed space. If you have very few fish you can reduce the
    amount of grow beds.

  20. Depending on your fish concentration I’ve seen successful total grow bed
    volume triple the amount pond volume. I don’t recommend it for beginners
    though. Things can go drastically wrong very quickly if you harvest too
    many plants too suddenly as they are playing an extremely critical role in
    filtering the waste from the fish and with the fish in such high
    concentrations you must keep that filtration going or the whole thing falls
    apart.

  21. Thank you for this awesome video! If you had a 5000 gallon fish pond how
    much grow space could this feed? an estimate would be greatly
    appreciated!!! Im trying to picture this using 4×8′ grow beds- how many
    would you recommend?
