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.

Aquaponics : Current Planting Activity


The reality is if you don't spend some time on the system and expecting it to grow by itself...well, i can tell you when something is too good to be true...think twice...or dream on...

Some quick update on our planting activity. Overall view from the side of Bed 1 to 6. We will place more seeds on the rest in the evening later.

Bed 7 and 8, cherry tomatoes and okra.

Aquaponics : Our Jade-Perch? Still Surviving?

It has been quite a long time we have not seen our jade perch (29 of them) in the tank (due to no crystal clear water)...not sure if all still alive... anyway, there is still no urgency on replacing the water as sound of 'wall knocking' still could be heard...daily, we are pumping small volume of water out from the tank to water our soil base plants...to us, single fish tank media based aquaponics is not as ideal...

Aquaponics : Mulberry @ Growbed Two and Three vs Soil Base

Yes. You read it right...mulberry is what we are trying to grow....

It is a shame for me to say I only spotted a challenge for the long run, which firstly it would clogged the Growbed and its root would break the Growbed eventually.

We have planted another two in the soil ground too, let's have them on our radar.

PS: Any such activity between soil base and AP Growbed has to beware that the bacteria etc is being transplant together. 

Growbed Three

Soil base 1

Growbed Two

Soil base 2

Aquaponics : Mechanical Filter

We added a bigger mechanical filter to the system.

Hoping that

1. Cleaner water in Sump Tank to avoid pump clogged
2. Collect a centralized 'poop' center for easy clean up.
3. Holding higher fish stocking
4. Cleaner water for a small demo DWC and a gutter system.
5. Etc

Aquaponics : Challenge

Our challenge is use whatever resources we have from our initial wrong design few years back...avoid additional cost...to achieve what we think it should be.
