1. The Practical Aquaponics discussion forum has been in operation for the last 5 years...

    We have enjoyed giving this service free of charge however ongoing increasing financial costs of running this service is making it increasingly difficult. Up until now we have resisted advertising as a means of a revenue stream to help run this forum but it has become inevitable that extra revenue is required to run this forum.

    We have introduced a donate button to help offset the cost of running this forum. It is completely voluntary, but if you would like to donate, all donations would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi,just joined so this is my first post,
    Ive got a large tilipia fish pond here in Southern Thailand,needs aerating/filtering.Thinking of making a waterfall system where the pond water is pumped over a tower of plastic bottles ( thinking of an IBC ) so the water is aerated before it filters thru my grow beds and back into the pond.
    Thinking of running the pump for 12 hrs and make the grow beds from sand,coconut coir and maybe rice husks and red wrigglers and grow Morning Glory in the grow beds as it can cope with water.
    Does this make sense?
