Acclimating Fish in the Small Aquaponics System

Join Paul as he prepares to move fish into the biologically cycled small aquaponics setup (see video on filter acclimation for that process). Watch as he gently nets out beautiful butterfly koi and releases them into their new roomy tank.

All About Bead Media

Part 1: Standard Bead Media vs. Enhanced Nitrification Media This video covers the two types of bead filter media, standard bead media and enhanced nitrification bead media. Paul reviews the surface area, and the filtration capture of bead media. Studies have shown that our bead filters capture 100% of particles greater than 50 microns and … Continued

Filter Acclimation

This article covers ‘fishless cycling’, a method to establish a tank’s biofilter using chemicals. Fishless cycling is recommended because it allows the fish to flourish and eat with stable water chemistry with as little stress as possible. The major drawback is that it takes several weeks to get a new system’s bacteria established before even … Continued

How PolyGeyser® Technology Works

The PolyGeyser filter is a breakthrough in filter technology. It is very different from most filters on the market due to its auto-pneumatic backwash mechanism. Water enters below the bed of enhanced nitrification media and travels upward through the filtration chamber where mechanical and biological filtration take place. Simultaneously, air is introduced into the charge … Continued

What is a Decoupled Aquaponics System?

In this type of system, the wastewater does not recirculate back to the fish. This is made possible by our sludge concentrating PolyGeyser® technology that releases dense nutrient-rich water to nourish your plants. The main benefit of a decoupled system is risk mitigation. Decoupled systems are lifesaving in the event of an issue with either … Continued

What is a Recirculating Aquaponic Loop?

This is a closed loop where the water recirculates within the system. The water travels through the fish tank, filtration, plant component, and back to the fish tank in a continuous loop. This is the most common aquaponics methodology but comes with some risk. With a recirculating system your treatment options for sick fish or … Continued
