At Aquaponic Solutions we have updated our domestic aquaponic system design calculator to Version 2.0 for all those people who wish to design and build their own backyard/hobby/domestic media bed aquaponic systems. This model allows you to size the media bed (gravel bed) of your system based on important requirements: the fish feed to plant use ratio requirement (we use a modified UVI ratio model for this) and the solids mineralisation requirement (to make sure that the solids that enter the gravel bed are broken down and mineralised efficiently and completely).
