Hello all, I have managed to rebuild my AP system. I will attach a couple of videos for your review. Along with a few photo along the way.

Currently I'm growing the following items. Two tomato plants, (said to be able to still make sets in temps over 120 degs). I have cucumbers, eggplant, red bell pepper, Cayenne Pepper, Habanero Pepper, Ghost Pepper and Seminal Pumpkin Squash.

I'm using a Flood and drain setup. Pumps are on 24/7. I'm raising goldfish for now. I'm using pea gravel and my growing media. I'm use a bell siphon to drain the water from the grow bed.

I have the unit covered in shade cloth to keep the unwanted growth down.

System has been running for about 8 weeks this Monday May 23, 2012.

All water test show very good. Having good growth already with my plants. I'm going to give them a mild dusting of mineral rock to give the plants some much need iron!

Please let me know if you have any question. Please leave comments if you see that I've done something so bad. I take both good and bad feedback. Unless you are trolling, then I block you :)

Happy Aquaponics every one!

--Michael John Hess

Hi all,

System is doing great. Had not had time to post many photos. Already pulling cucumbers off my plants. My pepper plants are also getting ready to have fruit ready to pick.

Wow! Your pepper looks great! I just set up a system, with my husband, this weekend. I can't wait to see the veggies start to poke out. We planted tomato, banana pepper, green pepper, cajun pepper(I think:), and strawberries. I plan to plant cucumber too. Oh, we also put in corn seed. I'm so excited just seeing it everyday:)
