Growbed is looking very well. The cucumber plant looking like it's going to start flowering soon. I may need to pull out those Water Spinach to let the cabbages grow.

Growbed update 18 June 2014




Seedlings are doing very well. In the growbed (clock wise from left) I have Chinese parsley, Spinach, Japanese Cucumber, Red Spinach ( Amaranthus Dubius), Cabbage, Water spinach & Chinese kale.

I added the pipe extension from the pre filter outlet to avoid splashes from hitting and injuring some of the seedlings.

I have had major deaths of my catfish due to unknown reasons, my guess it could be the hydroton being new and was not sufficiently washed. Wife insisted it's because I didn't start the system with ammonia this time around. Could be right.

System Reset



The frame was damaged in a storm few months ago so I had to harvest and switch off the system. Finally had time last weekend to to clean things up  so I took the opportunity to reset and redo the setup. The frames are no more and I opted for simpler, low profile setup for better structural stability. I need to get me more LECA!

Growbed update 26/5/13

Quick update on my rebooted aquaponics system. The growbed now enjoys much much more direct sunlight. The habanero plants are recovering from the shock. The tomato and eggplant plants are growing very very nicely. I am getting more LECA this weekend to convert the system to a constant flow growbed and nore more NFT. More pictures later.

Aquaponics system reboot in progress

I've been working on rebooting my Aquaponics system, moving away from NFT to growbed system. I took the opportunity of the reboot to move the growbed to a place that enjoys full sunlight. Now I need to get ahitload of LECA!
