dude, pls make ur videos shorter. you have lots of interesting subjects but i never watch any of them cos they're always so long
I've been studying home aquaponics and discovered an awesome website at Keiths Ponics Site (check it out on google)
Dear John. When I started watching your vids, I have to admit, I thought you were a cracked-pot! lol However, Sir you are awesome! Love your vids. Glad you stay true to yourself and so honest. keep'em coming. Thank you!!!
you talk too fuckin much!
It's like passive aggressive reporting. Just give people the dirt, on dirt farming, and leave out the inferior method, if so pro-ground growing.
Thank you for your videos.
repeated explanation reduces the interest in this video. good video minus lot of blah blah
@30:30 can anyone spell the creatures name?
great job, thank you for the info! keep it up.
You talk too much…I'm getting bored. Do show and tell/talk..getting annoying.
when im listening to this i feel like im in the market that is so noisy, i can't understand everything, to much explanation that is not necessarily, just be simple and tell us only the key point, we are not that dumb man…
Little less philosophy, little more video of the aquaponics
50 minutes of babbling, 5 minutes of knowledge. Do better.
I sure had a great time learning from this guy. Free lessons and great documentaries he does. I am very happy that i did not have to pay hundreds $$$$ in University/college trying to learn these techniques.
here in the philippines anyone can help me to start a aquaponics
Ingenuity ingenuitive. (19:33) no prob. We understand.
No40 electric conduit lasts longer in uv. So paint or cover PVC if you use that or it will degrade.
What was the name on the little crustations in the bio filter on the sponges? Would snails be helpful in this setup?
how many gallons are the beds and what size pumps are they using
Great info !! thanks. Voice work would be good. . Unfortunately your voice is very monotonous and it gets very hard to listen to it much after a few minutes if less. If you learn some "coloring " and stop trying to do the radio announcer voice It will benefit your videos greatly !! Also you say wayyy too much and it becomes over whelming. Whats between the words is just as important to how much you want to hear your own voice. just some friendly advice from another perspective.
I heard about woodprix instructions good opinions.
I wonder if going fully DC would be beneficial. You can get DC pumps from boat supplies, bilge pumps and such. Times can be DC as well as is micro electronics like pic logic controllers if you were to automate the system. The money you save on not having to buy inverter could be better invested in bigger battery network.
ow much does it cost for solar panels?and what is the power of that solar panel?
I am so happy that i found this video. Thanks a lot for this.
Very nice and helpful video blog…
Have you had problems with not filtering the water? Building up of ammonia from rotting left over solids?
How much wattage can you get off fresnel lenses and steam power?
Just saw your video I learned a lot can't wait to by my own place where I can start doing this where is a good source to find the square barrles if you know thanks
He's playing with the goat kid in the way that goat kids naturally play.
Aquaponics just keep getting better! Solar power is the best!
what kind of fish are they & what do you feed them?
Hi awesome. May I know where did you buy the complete solar part of the system.
Makes a lot of sense,the excess power could also be used by extractor fans connected to a thermostat to create the desired requirements needed for control of air temperature of say a greenhouse or poly tunnel, this power could also used to regulate the water temperature for the fish.
Try 12v pumps. they're more expensive but it would be about the same price without the inverter.
Best method I have seen…gives you everything…sustainable, portable, and cheap and easy.
Knowlege is the power!
you should make some plans to build the ibc tote fish tank and garden for extra profits some thing to think about!!!!!!!
