G’Day Folks. Decided I wasn’t happy with the small static pack biofilter that’s in the aquaponics system so have upgraded to a Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor. Am fairly happy with the build but might add a drain valve to it yet if I have issues cleaning it out in 6-8 months time. Hope you enjoy this quick update & your gardens are booming. Cheers all. 🐟 🌱🍅 Rob Uniseal prices & ordering information for Aussies can be found here, Folks in the US can purchase Uiniseals via our **Amazon page, HELPFUL AQUAPONICS PLAYLIST Starting an Aquaponics System, 2020 Aquaponics System Videos, Subscribe Here► Would be great to see you come along & say “G’Day” when we post a clip.

    Does that mean that i could have a lower temperature in the fish tank and then heat the water in the biofilm reactor so the bacteria kicks in?

    Hello Bob…
    I have some questions… could you please answer that…
    Is there any culture of bacteria in the bio filter(media)? If have then what's the bacteria name…?
    Can i make this bio media by myself using plastic straw? Or I need special kind of material to make it?

    Apologize If i missed it. Great Video! What did you put on the end of the air tube? Just a single Air Stone, or the Junction bar so you can do many air stones?

    Hi Rob, I have setup the IBC chop and flip, I have followed the bell siphon as per video with the exception of using a 50mm pipe for the bell, the issue that I'm experiencing is that the siphon does not stop after the grow bed drains. Could this be linked to the size of the bell?
