In this short video I will show you how to grow crustaceans in aquaponics. We can all grow crustaceans in our backyard, they are very interesting animals to …


  1. Thanks for sharing lot of information on Crustaceans growing in AQP. Your videos are very interesting indeed. However. I wish to know whether you have AQP set for experimenting or on commercial scale. If the latter, then how is the payback. A humble advice! Please discuss financial part too in all your interesting videos. Not everyone is doing AQP as a hobby but for commercial gains too! Thanks.

  2. Hello Jonathan. You have relay nice and useful videos on aquaponics. Thank you for your work, I hope someday I will have the possibility to have my own setup.
    May I suggest for you to cover a little about the problems and dangers of invasive species. People who are starting there one culture may introduce species in there surroundings that may cause severe problems for native species in there country. I know that these are closed systems, but the risk still exists, and it is quite neglected in all videos on this topic.

  3. Yabbies are now illegal to own in Ontario Canada, even in a tropical aquarium. All of the indigenous species are illegal to, so I have been thinking Florida blue ( Procambarus alleni ), they are still available through pet stores. Also at 2:53, what was the species of water plant?

  4. What about adding freshwater prawns, mussels, etc.? To create a more natural habitat could you not add some larger rocks and tree branches as a natural cover and add a few plants that could provide cover, oxygen, a food source and help clean the water like in the wetlands? Would it be a good idea to introduce protozoa, daphne, amoebas, etc. into the tank for a food source and clean the water? I would like to incorporate as many natural processes as possible for the best or optimal results.
    Now I have seen systems where the water flows circulation naturally pushed all of the solid particulates that collect on the bottom of the tank to one side where it was drawn out through the water outlet and was separated from the water by a swirl filter or some other type of filter and then it was composted in a worm bed.
    Thank you for taking the time to create these videos and your willingness to share your knowledge as it is greatly appreciated.

  5. Firstly, thank you for uploading this video.
    It is a little hard to hear some of the words you are saying, if possible, could you make an english subtitle for these videos? If not, thanks anyways, I've been looking for crustacean videos for aquaponics for some time.
