Looks great. I am curious about the sump area. Hopefully you show more of it in the video but I am having trouble viewing it right now. If could have talked my wife into letting me do something like this, I wouldn't have had to get rid of my goldfish.

Wow those timers look like a good deal. Plants are all doing good nice setup. Are you just going to stick with ornamental fish or do you have plans to go with Tilapia or catfish?

Great work!

Took me a whole lot of messing around to get half as successful.

Your aquaponic made me think of how to do it in a bigger scale. So that means no shelf and having 2 pumps pumping back and forth. I wonder if it can be done with one pump.

I have a feeling you'll need to add extra ferts or feed more to the fish. Have you checked no3 , po4?
