Aquaponics : Cabomba

Two weeks back, during a visit, my friend's given me a bag of Cabomba to be grown in the Aquaponics system.  We are not sure if it is suitable for Aquaponics but it is a good practice for an aquaculture.

Found that,  it is really hard to conclude as we don't perform periodic water quality check... How about under a high stocking density Aquaponics? The nitrate level? Etc etc..?

What say you?

Aquaponics : What do you need for good nitrification?

1. Avoid from direct exposure to sunlight
2. Water temperature of 17-34 °C
3. pH between 6 to 7
4. DO of 4 to 8mg/l
5. High surface area media

Aquaponics : How do you know if you have a functioning and balanced Aquaponics unit?

One of the answer will be ammonia and nitrite level should be always 0-1mg/litre.

Aquaponics : Growbed Three Clogged - Vent Cap Issue

Growbed Three Clogged. The ladyfingers plant we have here might be the contributor but it is not the root cause. 

We have reduced the water inflow and put them in radar until tomorrow morning. 

Big big guy.... It's no longer producing..

The root cause was the vent cap we used... Caused by the smaller LECA... If you decided to DIY affnan's siphon do ensure a proper vent cap is in placed.

Aquaponics : RG420

Have the RG420 cleaned up this morning after 3 months of planting activity.

Frankly speaking,  our last enhancement was not showing any improvement on the outcome. Most of them didn't meet what we have expected...not even close.  Anyway,  there will be another enhancement on the lane 4 but not so soon as we are currently tight up with some other project on the roof for the kids.

FYI,  there are two cherry tomato plants in lane 4 and growing strong.  Fingers crossed!

Look at the 'tongue of mom in law'....

Aquaponics : Shifting here and there

Changes are unavoidable...

1. We shifted all the jade perches (~20kg) from the gutter system to the BB tank. 

2. Tanks in the gutter system are mainly for tilapia. 

3. Sump tank for the main system is now mainly for guppies and ...for future needs... 

20kg Jade Perches are ready; however, there is no plan to sell them as of now. 

Tilapia from the main system sump tank have been moved here... 

Tilapia here are for sale as of now... 

Guppies' heaven
