Indoor Aquaponics Set Up – Episode Five — 1 Comment

  1. Question Jack: If you can only do one of wicking or ebb & flow, which would you choose?

    Due to space constraints, I will be using the 100 gallon stock tank for fish and would like to keep my system within that 53 x 31 inch footprint.  If I set up a 50 gallon stock tank ebb & flow bed over it, there is no room for wicking beds.  I think I would prefer just using a couple of mixing trays as wicking beds only a with lava rock layer for bacteria growth.  I could make one ebb & flow with about three inches of water cycle action given their short height.  I’ll probably just use a light load of gold fish for now.  Thoughts?
