    Hey Rob, your videos are awesome thanks for the great content!

    Quick question about your MBBR, I'm having a little trouble getting the media to circulate evenly. My airstone either pushes all the media towards the outside of the drum or doesn't get the media mixed at all. I guess my question is, what is the ratio of media to water in your MBBR?

    Just bit the bullet and bought my first two IBC's and the guy asked me what I was going to do with them and told him Aquaponics.He said a bunch of people that buy from him do that and he showed me his Aquaponic system. That was the first system i have seen outside of watching videos.I got to see his Greenhouse and his raised bed garden also.He is a big fan of yours and Murray Hallams.


    Would appreciate if you could assist me on the relevance of a biofilter and how to procure (source other ways in getting) beneficial bacteria in controlling algae.?

    Looks good👍 Have you ever researched IAVS? It's aqua ponics but uses sand as the grow medium and supposedly eliminates any need for additional filters. I am working on building one myself to see how well it works. Thanks for the video.

    When I saw this video I get mad complicating.Maybe because I can’t understand how the system work because I am a beginner

    Hey mate. I’m trying to set up a filtration system similar to yours, I’m just a little stuck on the bio filter and aerating it. Do you have a video on how you put your filter system together? Cheers.

    The problem you had was an alge bloom. Use phosphate remover and the water will clear. Your welcome. Although idk the effect the phosphate remover will have on the farm so good luck!

    Try using media pads on the top of the filter, it will catch all the debris including algae and it will keep your water crystal clear without using UV light. I have a trickle down filter with several media pads on top and it keeps my water crystal clear. You may have to clean and rinse out the media pads every few months depending out the size and quantity of your fish, good luck!
