5 Secrets To Successful Aquaponics Revealed

  1. 1. The 5 Secrets to Being Successful With Aquaponics If you want to be successful with aquaponics there are 5 secrets you need to know. Aquaponics is the food production revolution taking the world by storm. It is a symbiotic relationship of fish and plant allowing you to feed your family 100% organic food all year round from the comfort of your own home. • Do you like the idea of living greener through a more sustainable lifestyle? • Do you want to feed your family 100% organic fresh produce all year round? • Would you like to save on your food bill putting extra money in your pocket at the same time? Are you are nodding right now? Then as an 8 year auquaponics veteran I can tell you living greener, supplying your family with fresh produce all year round plus saving money has never been easier. The simplest and fastest way to make this possible is with aquaponics. B y N e i l F a r l e y A q u a p o n i c s S e c r e t s . o r g 2
  2. 2. With this in mind I want to share with you the 5 secrets to successful aquaponics in this article. So with your permission allow me to continue…..starting with choosing the right plants to grow. Aquaponics Secret #1 - Choosing the Right Plants It is possible to grow pretty much any fruit or vegetable with aquaponics in theory BUT… Even though it’s possible to grow a papaya or a banana tree with aquaponics if you are an aquaponics beginner it’s best to start more modestly. You want to stay away from plants that prefer acid or soil based environments. The same goes for plants requiring significantly higher or lower pH levels than neutral 7.0 so we advise against fruits such as blueberries. Look for plants preferring pH levels between 6.8 and 7.0. These plants will thrive in a basic aquaponics system allowing optimal nutrient uptake. It’s is possible to take cuttings, seeds or transplants from ordinary soil based plants you already have in your garden and use them in your aquaponics system. B y N e i l F a r l e y A q u a p o n i c s S e c r e t s . o r g 3
  3. 3. Aquaponics Secret #2 - Choosing the Right Fish Choosing the right fish depends on several criteria such as: Are your fish for eating or strictly ornamental? Some species of fish are better for eating (Tilapia being very common) whilst others such a Koi carp are better for ornamental purposes. What is your environment? The average temperature of the water throughout the year will affect the species of fish you can have in your system. If you live in colder climes you may choose trout as compared to being in Australia where you can choose Barramundi. How big is your budget? If you want to keep costs down you can choose goldfish however they aren’t recommended to eat. That is why Tilapia is often used in aquaponics because they are cheap but good eating too. We recommend keeping things simple when it comes to fish in your system. So have only one or two breeds of fish and you’ll find keeping them healthy is a simpler process. Aquaponics Secrets #3 – Choosing the Right Grow Bed This is vital, your grow beds are where all your plants will be grown. Making sure you have the right grow bed will make or break your system. As a beginner we recommend using a media based grow bed instead of a NFT (nutrient film technique) or DWC (deep water culture) system. B y N e i l F a r l e y A q u a p o n i c s S e c r e t s . o r g 4
  4. 4. Why? Well for the following reasons:  It is easier to build a media grow bed system.  It’s cheaper and easier to maintain  Allows you to remodel and make changes to your system much more easily  Gives greater flexibility in plant choice due to having more open space  The grow bed media will help break down solids and cycle water in the process which is known as mineralization (it’s a good thing!) Aquaponics Secret #4 – Choosing the Right Fish Tank Choosing the right tank is also critical as you can imagine. So let’s look at size first. As a beginner we would recommend that you start with a tank at least 200 litres in size. This will allow you to grow fish that are 30cm in length. Ideally you would start at 1000 litres. The reason being is the bigger the tank the more leeway you have when it comes to mistakes. The bigger the tank the slower the system will be affected allowing you more time to correct any problems. As for the material you build your tank from, it has to be one that doesn’t change the pH level in any way or is toxic either. To start with you will want to grow bed volume to fish tank ratio of 1:1 as it will make your life much simpler. As you get more experienced you can increase that ratio to 2:1.

  5. 5. Aquaponics Secret #5 – Water Maintenance Keeping control of the water in your aquaponics system is essential for optimal plant growth and maintaining the health of your fish. You need to keep control of the following; Temperature – We recommend choosing a fish species that will thrive in the water in your system will naturally adapt too. pH Level – The optimal rate is between 6.8 and 7.0 for fish, plant and bacteria. Check your system at least once a week and adjust accordingly. Purity – You need to make sure you have no chlorine in your water before adding it to your system. Oxygen Levels – You cannot really have too much oxygen in your system. Levels should never drop below 3ppm (parts per million) but ideally you will want levels above 6ppm.
