In the back garden of my small terraced house in Wiltshire, UK I have a fish farm.
Rainbow Trout and European Perch. I am growing fish and fresh vegetables.
Aquaponics UK. Trickling water and sunshine. Leaks, wet feet and cold hands!
Along the way I get distracted by the food I grow and cook. People I meet and places I travel to.

One of the routine task you have to do is clean the filters.
I detailed the construction of the RFF from a water cooler bottle in an earlier post.
Cleaning involves removing the flow separator, draining the tank. Flush it out with a hose pipe. Couple of minutes tops!
What I really like is that you can see that it is clean.
To prevent light entering the translucent bottle and causing algae growth I keep it covered with a couple of black bin bags.
