Care and management of the system
Looking after an aquaponic system is a rewarding and worthwhile pursuit. Once the system becomes established and stabilised, the occasional ‘tweak’ here and there is all that is needed to keep the system running at peak efficiency.
Perhaps the greatest challenge to the first time aquaponic grower is the fact that fish and plants are grown TOGETHER. Though the principles of growing plants and fish are the same, there are some subtle differences in the approach needed for successful production.
