One of our clients, Shaun from Vancouver BC, surprised me with some fantastic photos of his home aquaponic system. I don’t know about you, but I had to step back and admire the detail and craftsmanship that has been put into this masterpiece.
Not only is this one of the best glass houses I have seen in a backyard, the aquaponic system inside is very detailed and well thought out. It does not stop there. Shaun has aquaponic systems in his basement running on lighting that look just as good as this one. which are used for holding brood stock and breeding for growout upstairs.
Talk about bells and whistles, Shaun has everything, from media beds to floating rafts and seedling tables. The fish system includes a drum filter, radial flow filter and even a nexus ezypod makes an appearance.
The growth has also been exceptional with all the usual leafy green suspects, and a mountain of fruiting plants, tomatoes of all varieties, cucumber, eggplant, capsicum (peppers) and even watermelon takes the stage.
This is very interesting considering most people wrongly think this level of filtration will negatively affect plant growth. It doesn’t. In fact it looks to be better than some I have seen without filters and very much more forgiving of user error. But as usual, I have my “aquaculture bent” on, so let’s leave the talking to the photos…
With Shaun’s permission we have put together some photos that say the rest.
Thank you Shaun we are fans of your work.
