Aquaponics Questions And Answers

This is an article that will cover a few popular aquaponics questions and answers. Aquaponics systems are systems driven by water supporting both fish and plant life. The fish release waste which turns into nutrients in the water tray - the plant's roots are suspended in the water and they take in the nutrients which help them grow, simple!

The first aquaponics questions and answers is to do with the fish - What should you feed the aquaponic fish? Well, you can feed your fish one of three options: worms, snails or commercial fish food. How frequently should you give the fish food? For an average sized home aquaponics system fish should be fed first thing in the morning ( or whenever you get up ) and last thing at night ( just before you turn in to bed ).

These aquaponics questions and answers will cover the plants of a system - What happens if the leaves coming through on all of your plants are a yellowish color? Well, if the new leaves are growing yellow then you do have a slight problem, there is not enough iron in your aquaponics system. You can purchase special iron to add to the water and this is easy enough to do, usually takes about a couple of teaspoons. Am I able to use pesticides in an aquaponics system? This defy's the purpose of an aquaponic system, after all it's supposed to be organic and chemicals will kill the fish.

These aquaponics questions and answers cover the water used in a system - What is considered a normal pH level for the common aquaponic system. There isn't a steady pH level for an aquaponics system as it will fluctuate all the time, this is the whole point of constantly testing your pH level against the guidelines. So what are these pH guidelines? aquaponics ranges from 6.8 pH to 7.2 pH.

The aquaponics questions and answers listed above are the most common ones that I have been asked. There are basic questions left over like - what should you do if the water in the system starts to go cloudy or green? This is a common problem that most aquaponic newbies will face. The easy thing to do is to pour out about a third of the water content and replace it with some fresh water, this will dilute the cloudiness in the water.

I hope you have found these aquaponics questions and answers helpful for your project, good luck with your aquaponics system.
