bitFUUL Last year was okra, this year we did eggplant in the aquaponics setup. Hoping to post some photos of my current aquaponic/emersed setups soon.

MrAlmostWrong Wow! That is hella impressive. I love okra.

bitFUUL I planted an okra seed 3.5 months ago in my aquaponics setup, yesterday I pulled out an 8+ foot tree!

bitFUUL Various floaters added.
Plus more tanks are making their way to the back porch.
Store credit at Petsmart has me asking, when are they going to do their next dollar per gallon sale?

bitFUUL I've added a couple more tanks to the back porch, the summer brings the perfect amount of sunlight back here:



Roughly 16 different types of Crypts in this 10 gallon:


Christmas Moss:


Four Leaf Clover:


Various Stems:


Rosemary, Lemongrass, and a carpet of Hydrocotyle sp Japan:

Yeah, good luck with it! I've had better luck with emersed crypts than anubias. It appears the crypts will melt/spawn (but keep growing) while the anubias sometimes slow down to a crawl sometimes.

Just remember: Lots of spray, lots of light, lots of air!

Sure. We have a 55 gallon drum holding our Tilapia (future dinner) and 3 media grow beds (lava rock, river rock, and expanded clay) and 1 styrofoam raft. System is thriving in the summer right now, plants/fish/bacteria are doing great. Plus I do my planted tank emersed waterings with the aquaponics water, plants love it!
