Is this your setup?

What about the fish? How many? What kind? Where from? Any fish pics?

2. support - grow media

3. water - delivery

4. nutrients - fertilizer - chemical or organic
.

Q. fish? A. part of water/nut's ecosystem ... later

This looks very cool. Maybe it's time to set up that worm farm after all.

Either way you can't go wrong with the worm farm. Profitable, recycle plant waste,

best plant food/fertiliser manufacturer(sellable), rabbit or chicken cage on top to autofeed, odorless.

That's the part that distinguishes between Aqua-ponics and Hydro-ponics.

Thanks Richard. The Ozzies have really advanced this concept.

I plan to go from basic to advanced.

Everyone is welcome to put up their LINKS.

Great to see such interest in PP about Aquaponics. My Name is Dave and I am arriving in PP early next week to try and develop a commercial Aquaponics project in the capital. Would love to meet up with Milford, Vladimir, plus anyone else looking to know more on the subject or looking to get involved.
Also if anyone is interested in learning about aerated compost tea production, application and benefits; as well as the cultivation and use of Indigenous Micro Organisms for Aquaponic water filtration, domestic drinking water filtration, organic pesticide production, Black Water treatment, Bokashi composting, vermi-composting, please free to PM me; I would very much appreciate hearing from any and all interested.
Should anyone know of a large roof top space for a commercial Aquaponics development and educational facility, for lease/rent in PP, I would be interested to meet with you. Also any inquires relating to investing in this Aquaponics start-up, are very welcome to contact me.
