The Basic Layout of my Three Aquaponics / Aquatics Systems in Video

This is our core system with a heart of two 330 gallon recycled IBCs, running 2 ebb and flow beds, 8 soil based beds and one deep water bed.

This system could be expanded to have dozens and dozens more wicking beds. Still running on a single pump.

This system is far more an aquatic system with aquaponic elements unlike the first system. Still it shows what can be done with only one small energy input. This system could expand almost infinitely with wicking beds.

The third system is built on the timber frame pond concept we developed last year. This system is growing a ton on thing on shelves in the pond, it is also running 3 wicking beds and one ebb and flow bed.

  1. Hi, Love the idea. I think I may have missed some of the basics. Like how to load a wicking bed, how much do you need to feed the fish. where best to place the pump suction in the tank. do you need to deal with the sludge in the tank. etc. I have a natural pond I am thinking of converting to an aquaponic system. Thanks for the info
