Aquaponics : Additional Growbed to Balance The System

We are planning an additional growbed, growbed nine, for this 200+ gal system as for our observation, we still hit into water quality issue occasionally. 

Anyway, Not likely to be balance after this...maybe another two more?

Aquaponics : Use your eyes and senses

This is what we be been saying all the while.... use your eyes and observe....

Figure shows that, we are pretty sure there is something wrong within the system....

What happened was we were having minor intermittent issue on the water pump. We have swapped a new one and hopefully it will be alright tomorrow.

Aquaponics : A Week After Minimum Human Intervention

Have taken a complete break from the AP system last week and let it run with minimum human intervention by itself, bear in mind that to do that you would need to have a backup power source and SOP in place else you might come back with fishes floating on the surface. ;) 

For fishes, as long as there is enough aeration... it will be fine...food is not a big issue for one week duration. 
For plants, if water is not pump to the growbed under the hot sun...they would dried off. 

Well, for this round as we have two water pump systems, one from the grid (failover inverter in placed too) and another from the green source, running in our system we are lucky enough as there is no issue encountered. :D 

Bed 1, new 'babies' spotted.


Bed 2, bitter gourds are flowering and fruiting. Looks like the mulberry is back in the action.

Bed 3, the Mulberry is catching up and two baby cucumbers...

Bed 4, okra is on its way.... no water melon sprouted...will place another around of seeds, suspect to be flushed by the heavy downpour or bad seeds.

Bed 5 and 6, the big brother Luffa is fruiting and hanging around the area...with 4 cabbages in bed 6, awaiting to be transplant to other bed.

Bed 7, cherry tomatoes awaiting to be harvested. Planning to relocate one cabbage from bed 6 here. 

Bed 8, okra.....oh gosh... more seeds coming...

Growbed three : 
The Mulberry is growing in a slow pace, looks like been going thru the transplant shock....two cucumbers sprouted...

Growbed four : 
An okra is growing here...we just have watermelon seeds sowed this morning.

Growbed five : 
Luffa is growing nicely and shifting its trunk to the Growbed six.

Growbed Six :
We have around four cabbages here and planning to move some of them later.

For fishes, just given out two jade perch for testing to our supporter... there were 900+gram in total and around 8 inches each...

Aquaponics : How Things Screw Up?

Even a small plastic can 'screw' the whole things up...that's the reality of aquaponics if not taken care properly...not convinced enough? Check out the 'kamikaze' fish we have few years back...

Aquaponics : Where Are We Heading?

As mentioned in the early of the year, our goal for this year is to grow as many as we can to supply our family... well, it is almost 9 months now, found that not much on the growing activity and yet to achieve the target.
Believe from the system we have, we should be able to achieve weekly harvest... now the question is what is gap? Is whatever shown in Internet is actually too good to be true? As stated in our previous post, the crops and the AP system will not grow by themselves....we need to spend time on it and what else?
Now here is the goal, achieve weekly harvest from what we have now...if that not met, forget about the 2k square ft system.
