From Ethereal Farms
Brick seed starting lean converted to aquaponics greenhouse.
- AP-1 - The first system we constructed. The media bed is based upon a 12" deep 4'x8' 300 gallon reservoir. 500 GPH pump to wood & pond liner media bed filled with Hydroton.
- AP-2 - Post Mortem. This was an IBC tote system. Additional wood and pond liner sump and media bed. ~12 cu foot Media beds (Hydroton and Expanded Shale Mix) *1/4 cut of IBC tote and . The system did ok in operation but never thrived. I think failure is from heat build up from shallow roof / lack of circulation as well as insufficient pump (degrading over time) and media beds.
- Greenhouse Sun Garden - Raised bed against glass south wall of greenhouse. Framed with 4x4s
