Antonio Paladino of @bioaquafarm came to visit and advised we add a RAS style #biofilter to our #eel system whilst we prepare our #aquaponic media beds. Bloody good thing too as the snow keeps us away from the farm.
The filter is in an IBC, with some sizeable airstones on a hailea pump to keep the filter material moving. We ordered some filter material to make a home for the bacteria.
Antonio also helped us speed up our cycle by offering us 100l of already bacteria rich filter media from his own system to boost our system cycle. Now there’s a good aquaponic neighbour! Hopefully we can return the favour sometime!
Great thanks and gratitude to him as always and pointing any budding aquaponicists in BioAqua farm’s direction!
