This article will give you ten tips to keep your aquaponics system running strong all year round

Within an aquaponics system is a delicate ecosystem composed of fish, bacteria, and plants. For everything to work perfectly, each part of the system must be balanced and healthy. Fish are required to be healthy to produce ammonia that is converted by the bacteria into nutrients for the plants.

 If you want your aquaponics system to be successful for many years to come, then preventing fish diseases should always be your primary concern.

Having the right and efficient water pump will ensure that the water is continuously pushed through-out your aquaponics system to provide the fish and the plants necessary nutrients. If your water pump is not reliable to do the job of distributing the water in the system, the consequences could be a failure in building and maintaining your own aquaponics system. That is why we made this article to help you choose the right water pump for your aquaponics system. 

A vertical aquaponics system is one aquaponics method that grows plants without soil in columns above a fish tank. This method is popular with aquaponics gardeners because it is a water-efficient and space saving way of gardening and fish raising. Growing vertically also lets the aquaponics gardener grow and produce twice the amount of plants as with the media-based aquaponics system of the same area.

Fish health and care are critical and essential to the overall health and function of an aquaponics system. Keeping your fish healthy and free from diseases will go a long way towards ensuring that your system is running smoothly.
