The place where you place your aquaponic system is essential for the way in which the plants and the fish will develop. In order to obtain great results you should make sure that the temperature from the room is not too high, nor too low, that there is enough light for the plants to prepare their food and that no wind or extreme weather conditions will reach them. Also, make sure that no harming chemical substances can get inside the water as this means death for both your fish and your plants.

Oxygenizing the h2o

The happier your fish are, the more effective your system could work! This is often the reason you will need to oxygenize the h2o on a everyday basis and make sure your fish have all the “comfort” they need.

Choosing your fish appropriately

The aquaponic system performs best with virtually all breeds of fish. Yet, there may be states where you’re probably not allowed to grow whatever kinds of fish you want, so you will want to see what varieties of fish you are allowed to have before you commence your aquaponic system as you want to avoid any issues with the law.

Placing the containers

In order to make the harvest less difficult, you could place the pots or the entire system at waist level. This way you will not have to bend over, making the day-to-day care routine a much easier activity.

Adding additives

There are cases in which your fish may well not provide every nutrients needed for your plants. If the quantity is lower than what the plants need, in that case you will have to supply them with the respective additives. Typically you’ll need to add iron, calcium carbonate or potassium carbonate.  ……”
