Aquaponics Design | Matthew’s Courtyard System G’Day Folks. In this clip I look through an aquaponic system Matthew would like to build for his young family. We’ve already had a chat online & on the phone about some of the points covered here & he’s already redesigned the system somewhat from his original layout. I do hope that some of the points covered will help you when it comes to designing your own aquaponic system. Hope you enjoy this quick update & your gardens are booming. Cheers all. 🐟 🌱🍅 Rob Building a Backyard Aquaponic System Playlist, ► Aquaponic 101 Playlist, ► Radial Flow Separator & Swirl Filter Comparison, ► Subscribe Here► Would be great to see you come along & say “G’Day” when we post a clip.

    In a lot of these systems I see on YT, there is quite a lot of green algae…especially on the ones that seem to be not particularly well maintained. Could a person use algae eating fish added to the tanks to clean that up? I don't see any vids about using them in these systems for some reason. How about using crustaceans to help further utilize the solids before the water leaves the fish tank (or directly afterwards in the filter or a tank between the fish tank and the filter. I would think that crayfish would clean most of that sediment the filter catches right up. Maybe also fresh water mussels?

    Dr Rob, thank you for the inspiration. I think the second system is more user friendly and simple to maintain.
