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.
Getting started with aquaponics can be overwhelming, with so many books, blogs, videos, and approaches to building your system. It’s important to develop your own understanding of what aquaponics is and understand its basic principles so you’ll know how to start and maintain your aquaponics system.
Light / Sun Humans see light, but we don’t need light to survive. Plants, on the other hand, need light to live. People who aren’t gardeners sometimes presume that if there is enough light to see, there is enough light for plants to thrive. Make sure to understand the amount light that your plants needs to thrive.
In flood and drain or media-based aquaponics systems, it is essential that correct and continuous water flow is maintained for the fish and plants get enough amounts of nutrients, and the bell siphon is the device that is responsible for regulating the flow of the water in the entire system.
