The top 10 reasons why your aquaponics system isn’t cycling

Establishing the nitrogen cycle, AKA ‘cycling’, can be the hardest part of aquaponics, in part because the activity is all invisible to the naked eye. Aquaponics cycling, however, is the most crucial and probably the most difficult part of aquaponics – but it really isn’t that hard if you can be patient! We hope that […]

Top 5 Edibles for Your Aquaponic Efforts

Top 5 Edibles for Your Aquaponic Efforts – Aquaponic Loving Edibles

Just how do some greens grow exceptionally well in aquaponics? Well, we’ll tell ya. Fish produce waste that contains ammonia, which is then converted into nitrates by two important nitrifying bacteria (Nitrosomonas and Nitrospira). Nitrosomonas bacteria create nitrites as a byproduct of their consumption of ammonia. […]

Maintaining temperature in your system

Water Temperature in Aquaponics

One of the most important parameters to monitor and maintain in your aquaponics system is a consistent water temperature. This is particularly important for the health of the fish. Fish are considered poikilothermic which means that they are cold blooded and their body temperature is not internally regulated. As a result their […]
