Setting Up A Simple Aquaponics System

How to setup an Aquaponics System ? This post I try to briefly explain a very simple setup, its important to start simple so that we learn and progress as time goes by.


It is not advisable to start with complex or large system. It is also ridiculous to start with a tiny system, it’s only meant for show case and school projects.

Size of Fish tank and Grow beds are the two determining factor in Aquaponics, in theory the size of grow bed is directly proportional to the size of tank used.  A 1:1 ratio is a rule of thumb, however smaller grow bed to tank is acceptable but not the other way round for obvious reason where insufficient water available to grow beds and fish.

What Tank and Grow Bed size to use ? Try : Here

In the illustration I recommend a 100 gallon tank and a 2’ x 3’ grow bed for a start. This size is an estimate but it’s roughly there.

Simple 2 Growbed Over Tank with Bell Siphon

It is best to start with a simple water management system, shown above the raised grow bed using a Timed Flood and Drain or Continuous Flow Flood and Drain setup. This is the easiest to make and the least can go wrong. As you progress, this system can be adapted to make use of more growbed or fish area utilizing various method of water management with minimum changes as example in photo and diagram below.

  • Timed Flood and Drain make use of stand pipe and leak (drip) hole
  • Continuous Flood and Drain make use of a Siphon.

More Growbed Over Tank with Bell Siphon

Here is the sketch.


For a start, I do not recommend any system with lots of moving parts or those with Sump Drain reason being the extra pump and parts is just additional item to fail or need maintenance. It is too much for beginners to worry about. 
In above diagram, Timed Flood & Drained or Bell Flush system, water are fed to the grow bed by using a single pump, estimate about 800 ~ 1200 Liter/hr 14 ~ 20 watt power rating (on Timed Flood and Drain you can use smaller pump), and water returned to fish tank are by gravity. A tiny drip hole is needed in the stand pipe on both this methods, this to ensure during pump “OFF” operation water are drained slowly, to promote the Aquaponics process.

If 25 mm siphon is used, a recommended 1000 l/h water flow for each siphon for its operation. If you have 2 growbed with individual siphon then its 1000 x 2 l/h pump total capacity is needed.

Bell Siphon

Growth medium use normally gravel or Hydroton (LECA) which is popular now, roughly 10 ~ 20 mm in size, not too small and not too big. 


Gravel Growbed

Hydroton Growbed

Small pebbles can cause water logged and bigger could be difficult to handle while planting. Gravel height should be about 1” above water level, or the stand pipe height initially,  with time as the plant grow this water level can be adjusted lower by using a shorter stand pipe.

Timed Flood and Drain, use timer that readily available, most people set it at 15 minutes ON and 45 minutes OFF continuously with some changes to cycle during night time. Bell Flush system, the pump is switched ON continuously during the day and switched OFF at night, however it can also be run continuously 24/7.

I switch OFF at night for power saving and noise issue, with pump OFF its advisable to have an aeration pump running to ensure oxygen are sufficient.

Below is a diagram of  CRAFTS, for installation where you need more growbed and fish area as you progress and don't want to add complex rearrangement but modular in approach.



What Fish to use… ?

For those that like ornamental fish, KOI is a good choice, common gold fish also another option. These fishes are hardy and able to tolerate varies water condition.

For those that want fish for the dinner table (like me), its depend on your area, over here in  hot humid rainy equatorial climate I recommend;

Barb families, Perch, Mansheer, Gourami, Tilapia (Red Variety is best).

I don’t recommend Catfish and Snakehead, they are predator fish and also they are air breather.

Air breather like Catfish, Snakehead and Climbing Perch (Puyu) will tolerate extreme water condition, as such you will not learn much on how to manage water of an Aquaponics setup.  However they are the easiest to get you started.

Fish like Tilapia is quite hardy, but they still need dissolve oxygen, so using these types of fish will make you conscious of water quality and oxygen content.

What Plants to use ?

Again depending on your region and whether you are using a Green house or not. Most leafy vegetable were grown, there are cases where carrot, beet and radish were use. Tomato is a common vegetable for Aquaponics.

On plant I leave it to your imagination.

  1. way use timers they are great problem i had chinees timer once and it went on fire i went to Saudi for Omrah and my made called the neighbors and they put it off. I think it is would be better to use small amount of water going to the grow bed and fast flush the water using your ball valve

    ReplyDelete
  2. Yes, any electrical equipment may fail. Some fail passive other may be active (like causing fire).

    Pump could have problem too, so I guess its best to get a good Timer and Pump, some Chinese brand are good.. We just have to figure out which one :(

  3. Hey man, I was just reading over your aquaponics system and I was wondering if I'm trying to incorporate an aeroponics system and aquaponics system what would be the ratio of PVC medium vs. fish tank? So I'm going to use pvc pipes to grow produce and the use of a flowing water systems instead of a grow bed with a flood drain system. in other words, do you know whats the equivalent length of PVC I could use (or how many plants i.e. lettuce/strawberries/tomatoes I can be grown)in a 100 gallon tank?

    ReplyDelete
  4. @Kevin, In TFT system ( PVC Pipes) its limited only by the number of fish. Water is not hold in the pipes it will flow out continuously.

    Therefore once you setup the tubes, water will remain constant.

    Just ensure during pump off the 100 gallon tank don't overflow. Even if its over flow just have an overflow pipe ready.

    I would recommend 4x10ft tube for a start and add more tube once you are comfortable with the setup. 1 ft spacing is recommended, but can be reduce to 8~10 inches depending on plants grown.

    In TFT system, the growth media is very important so that it do not clog the pipes/tube.

    Hope this help.

  8. Affnan,
    I've been reading your blogs and have a few questions. I started a 100g system a couple months ago and want to put some kind of solids removal device onto it. I read your blog on a pvc solids prefilter and wanted to know how well it was working for you. I have very limited space and this looks like a good option. My system consists of 3 grow beds, 2 with pea gravel and bell siphons, and one floating raft bed with a 100 gallon tank. My second question concerns how long to run the pump, currently it runs 24/7 with is working fine, but I read that you shut off the pump at night, do you feel it has any effect on the ability of the bacteria in the grow beds to act as a filter. Do your grow beds dry out over night and if so wouldn't that kill the bacteria in the bed and reduce its filtering capacity? I would love to save some money on electricity if it wouldn't have any negative effects. Great blog, keep up the great work, also love your vids, Thanks Chris

    ReplyDelete
  9. @Christ

    First the easy one..

    I switches off the pump don't see any negative effect just don't forget to turn on the aeration pump during this period, I don't see any negative effect after doing it for 4 years. The only problem may be your location the daylight is longer and varies from month to month if this is the case, try using some kind of a photo switch to turn off the pump when there is no daylight.

    Turning off the pump at night will reduce your pump maintenance and increase its life. It will also save electricity and noise issue at night.

    On, prefilter. I don't use it any more, after brief trial it work but that will add more chore to do and cleaning the growbed once maybe in 2 years or more is not a big issue for me.
    You may need a filter for your raft bed but not the gravel growbed. The raft system may need a better filter to ensure no solids get through.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Thanks for the advice, I may try putting together one of your solids filters and see how it goes. I have lots of plants outside that could use the fertilizer that I could collect from it as well. So far I haven't had very many solids collect in the raft bed, but the system is only been running since the end of April and I only have 10 small tilapia in the tank so far, I'm sure as they grow more solids will start to accumulate.

    1. Hi Mostafa, most leafy plants and fruiting veg will do in bell flush system. Its depend on your locality and that varies. You can start with planter box or sowing tray then transfer, for cheaper veg I sometimes just sow direct, its all depend on whether the seed will sink to bottom of gb or not.

      I've tried various fish found in my area, Tilapia is one species which is popular as food source and widely use. They are easy to rear and breed without much problem. Other fish like cat fish and perch are use in some places. Australian like to use Perch, because its naturally found there. Goldfish and KOI is an option if you like ornamental fish.

      Feeding, I base on monitoring fish behavior don't over feed. Start with feeding a little at a time over a 5 minutes period until the fish don't eat. Take note of this and use this amount as baseline for future feeding and increase as the fish grow. This takes time and practice, and I'm confident most people after doing it for few days they will be able to judge the amount.

  16. Hi Affnan!

    We are building a ibc aquaponics-system using a 1000 liter ibc, 1/3 for growbed, so the fishtank will contain about 500 liter. What pump would you recomend/liters per hour? We´re going to use a bell siphon.

    1. One Standard size bell siphon with 25mm or 1" standpipe will work with about 750 ~ 1000 lt/hr pump capacity. If you use the 20mm or 3/4" it will need even smaller flow rate about 500 lt/hr. So its all depends on size of siphon.. you can always use "bypass" to divert excess water like most people do.

  19. Affnan,

    Peace and good health to you and your family!

    From someone who has been researching aquaponics for the last couple of months, I want to thank you for your posts and explanations here and for your videos on youtube. I have an idea to share with you and would appreciate your feedback. I'm thinking of using coconut choir in containers with vermi-compost as they do at Growing Power here in Wisconsin. The containers will rest on a constant flow growing bed of river rock, wicking up the fish effluent. My idea is to reduce depth and weight of the growing bed while maximizing the surface area per barrel over below grade fish ponds. I want to use polyethylene barrels cut down the length of one side only. Continuing the cut bisecting the tops and bottoms, and cutting across both top and bottom at right angles, I want to form a set of 4 quarters connected side by side. I will then use a heat gun to soften the sides of the barrel adjacent to the cuts so I can bend them open. The ends will be trimmed to control the water level and allow connections between barrels. Multiple barrels can be arranged end to end as shallow growing beds elevated over long fish ponds. I want to support each row of growing beds on 4 sloped 1"X6" wooden rails (wood decking), with metal bailing straps slung across the rails supporting each barrel.

    My biggest concern is the weight of the water and river rocks supported within these relatively flat plastic barrels. I don't want the entire thing collapsing into the fish ponds beneath them, and I'm no engineer. If you can picture what I am describing, I wonder how many metal straps will be required to support each barrel? I've seen half barrels deformed by water pressure when the sides weren't supported. By sloping the rails slightly, I could use the steal bailing straps to support the bottom of each quarter, passing them over each of the railings and securing their ends to the outside railings. The outer railings will be pulled inward by the weight of the barrels resting on the bailing straps, snugging them against the sides and keeping them from collapsing. I'm concerned about how to secure the bailing straps to the wooden rails as well. Steel bailing straps aren't particularly wide, so I need a fastening method that won't weaken them too much, and I may need to be able to adjust them to level their barrel as the support system settles. I wonder if you or one of your readers may have a suggestion for securing the straps to the rails? Finally, any suggestions as to how frequent the posts supporting the railings will need to be? Consider that it will need to support containers of plants resting on the river rocks as well as the water flowing through the system.

    1. Hi Soccer Insider, thanks for your comment ans what a long explanation.
      From what I can deduce you are building a cascading constant flow aquaponics growbed with growing pots of coconut choir.

      Those slopping 1"x6" if you can make some plywood contour to the shape of the growbed these may help in securing them to the railing. This way you may not need those bailing straps to hold the growbed in place.

      It is hard to visualise correctly but these are the best I can do, at the moment.

      Cheers.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thank Robertan for your comments
    I use ordinary nursery lawn gravel that easily obtainable from garden nurseries, I think its limestone. Normally limestone will make water PH high, this could be a problem depending on type of plants you grow.

    River pebbles are ideal but could be expensive, many other type of media can be use all depends on availability in your area. You can try out what ever you could get first on a smaller scale before embarking on bigger setup.

    I use gravel about 10 ~ 20mm aggregate Limestone, so far so good. However I wish I could use something lighter to make it easier to handle and support.

  27. Hi Affnan , first of all I have learned a lot of things from you , so thank you very much.
    I want to ask you about the siphon , in my system the siphon is taking 10 minutes to fill the grow bed and 10 minutes for the water to return to fish tank , do you think this is ok or should I make adjustment to prolong the time where the grow bed is empty .
    sometime the siphon is not working properly , i.e it fail to start the siphon effect and the water remain running from the GB to the Ft at the same rate , until I interfere manually to make it start siphoning ,do you think that this will affect the growth of plants , because the growth in my system is not good , although it has been running for 6 months now.
    My third question is about shutting off the pump at night , is it better to shut it while the GBs are full or while they are empty , because you know there are bacteria and this may affect them.
    Thanks again

    1. Thanks Asaad for your query.
      10 minutes to fill is ok but it should not be 10 minutes to drain. Siphon action act like toilet flush, so draining should be a short time depending on gb size.

      Without knowing how your setup look like, I am unable to eloborate on why the siphon fail.

      I normally switches pump off at night. Its best to have water drain out from gb during this period. I made a small leak hole to ensure gb drained during pump off. Leaving plant root submerge underwater overnight is not a good idea.

      Hope this help.

    1. Keep it simple, any size 15 to 20mm aggregate pebble/gravel/rock will do. River pebbles are best but difficult to get. Exotic media like Hydroton are expensive and make sure non-floating type, floating Hydroton is useless.

      Where I am at I can't find a non-floating Hydroton yet, I need to try them out. As mention earlier, rock pebbles sold at Garden Center will do for a start.

  30. Hi Affnan, thanks for sharing your valuable experience with us. After doing much research in the net, I finally got my small scale system commissioned 3 days ago. I have 2 2x3x1 ft plastic trays with one one on Constant Flow & the other on Ebb & Flow system. The item I find most difficult to source is the growbed. What type of growbed u r using that is readily available in Malaysia?

    I also find the river pebbles which is abt rm1.00 per kg to be pretty costlier as it requires abt 70 kg to fill a 2x3 growbed. Some friends were advising me to use bricks or crusher runs (stones use for road construction). Will they work?

    What about seedlings? Do u plant them directly into the growbed? If u do, what's the technique?

    Sorry to bother u with so many questions. Tx.!

  31. Hi Jayson

    Those tub I got it from : http://www.ehkaquatics.com/

    Road construction lime stone will work, however the ph will be a bit high, you will need to address this issue. I sow directly onto grow bed, due to the type of pebbles I use varies in size they hold those seeds. You could use tissue paper to hole individual seed and plant them in the grow bed, be sure water reach the tissue otherwise it will harden and seed will not sprout.

  32. Hello Affnan,
    I need your advice about tanks to use for my first aquaponic system. I've sourced around town and found (thus far) that these are the only sizes available:
    a) 165x110x61 cm^3 (5.4x3.6x2 ft^3)
    b) 114x71x44 cm^3 (3.8x2.3x1.4 ft^3)
    c) 100x66x30 cm^3 (3.2x2.2x1.0 ft^3)
    d) 76x47x22 cm^3 (2.5x1.5x0.72 ft^3)

    What combination should I use as fish tank and grow beds? (a) seems too big for a beginner. I'm hoping to use (b) for fish tank and 2 pcs of (c) as grow beds although I'm not sure if (b) is deep enough; would the fish suffer with the levels going down to less than a foot? Is it viable for tilapia? I appreciate your opinion as you have a great deal of experience in this area. Thanks.

    1. B should be about 100 gallon and C is 30 gallon each, C with media should take 15 gallon water at most so 2 of C will take 30% of tank water if both activated simultaneously. B & C combi is good.

    2. 65 L fish tank is a very small setup, I will use a 500 ~ 600 liter per hour pump with a very small siphon that could operate within that flow rate. With growbed height above the water level about 2 ft, the flow is roughly will be around 300 ~ 400 Liter per hour depending on pump.If you are using siphon then the 15 mm siphon will works with this flow, however a small siphon will be difficult to get right.
