Light is a requirement for plant growth, and scientific studies have found the effectiveness of using artificial light on plants. However, many new aquaponics growers are unsure if fish also need light. This leads to the question, do fish in aquaponics systems need light?
Fish are an essential component of an aquaponics garden. They supply all the nutrients that plants need to grow. Although fish are easy to grow in an aquaponics system, they have specific requirements to survive and flourish. Choosing the right warm water fish for your aquaponics system is one of the most important decisions you have to make before starting an aquaponics system.
