  • Hydroponic Xpress: LEARN AQUAPONICS | Aquaponic Frequently Asked Questions
    etc will flourish in an aquaponics system but fruiting plants such as tomatoes capsicums cucumbers will benefit with additional trace elements Water Testing testing of your aquaponics water is essential to know how your system is performing Testing every week to two weeks especially in the first couple years Normal tests include ammonia nitrite nitrate and pH Ideal ranges for these test are as follows Ammonia less than 1 Nitrite less than 1 Nitrate optimal 2 5 pH between 6 8 7 3 BACK TO TOP What Kind of Plants Grow In An Aquaponics System Plants that do particularly well include leafy green vegetables vine plants fruit and fruit trees flowers and grasses wheat barley etc The cost and turnover time of each crop varies dramatically with leafy greens being able to be produced in a several weeks and root based plants and fruit trees taking longer BACK TO TOP Is Bore Water Ok in Aquaponics In most cases yes Check the pH first to find out if it is suitable then it s best to settle the water prior to using it with fish and vegetables Bore water can have high levels of iron Bacterial iron will affect the fish health whereas solid iron shouldn t affect fish To find out what type of iron is in the water is an expensive exercise so it s better to settle the water prior to using it Usually settling the water for about one week in a seperate tank is enough for the iron to settle to the bottom and you can use the top half of the settled water Bore water will affect the taste of your fish BACK TO TOP What Media Should I Use The best medium to use in an aqauponics system is expanded clay Expanded clay is a porous lightweight earthy clay aggregate It s durable and has exceptional capillary properties The internal structure absorbs nutrient solution releasing it to the plant on demand It holds the plant in place but is light enough to allow air penetration to the roots which prevents excessive acidity and rotting Expanded clay is pH neutral and is reusable for many years BACK TO TOP What Source Of Water Can I Use In My System Your water needs to be free of toxic chemicals and if possible have little or no suspended solids clay Water that is clear will make it easier to observe the fish giving you a clear view of what is happening in the tank Clear water allows you to monitor any buildup of wastes at the base of the tank as well as letting you see that the fish are eating all of the food given to them Both fresh and salt water can be used in aquaponics Freshwater is the most common used water as there is a broader range of plants that use freshwater When using saltwater plant selection is limited and is generally used to grow products such as kelp seaweed If using chlorinated water chlorine must be removed before water can be added to the system Chlorine can be removed from water by either using a filtration unit exposing the water to air and sunlight for several days or using water additives such as sodium thiosulphate that neutralise the chlorine BACK TO TOP What Kind Of Fish Can I Grow in Aquaponics Barramundi Silver Perch Trout Golden Perch Catfish Murray Cod Jade Perch Australian Bass Black Bream Marron Eels and Yabbies are suited to the climate in Australia as are goldfish koi and other ornamental fish BACK TO TOP What Do I Feed The Fish The type of fish that are being grown will determine the type of fish food that is used Floating pellet fish food which contains no land animal by products is recommended Food can also come in the form of live food including worms and snails BACK TO TOP How Many Fish Should I Have In My Tank The more fish there are in a system the more nutrients there are for the plants to consume but if there are not enough plants to consume these nutrients the excess build up in the water can cause the fish to suffer As a general rule hobby applications can stock up to 20 fish per 1000 litres of water and grow to maturity For Yabbies and Marron a stocking density of 10 per square metre is recommended This assumes that there is sufficient hides on the bottom ie shade cloth and or pvc pipe BACK TO TOP What Type of Fish Tank Is Suitable Any kind of water reservoir preferrably round or oval shaped that is clean not metal and has preferably never held chemicals is suitable This is especially important for plastic tanks which can retain the chemical residue in its structure and release it into the water slowly You can also use bathtubs in ground ponds barrels spas and small rainwater tanks as the fish tank When using a tank with a flat base keep an eye on the build up of sludge at the bottom of the tank and remove as necessary This build up can cause anaerobic areas to develop which can increase ammonia levels and release toxins that can be fatal to your fish To overcome this problem a filter is recommended Make sure that your tank is covered from direct sunlight birds and other predators or to prevent fish jumping out by using shade cloth type material Any direct light that gets into the tank will cause algae to grow which takes away nutrients from the plants you are growing in the grow beds Fish require very minimal light Do not use a solid lid as this can be harmful to your fish BACK TO TOP Why Do I Need Bacteria In My Aquaponics System Beneficial bacteria are essential to your aquaponics system as without them the water can quickly become toxic to fish Without bacteria plant nutrients will not become available for the
