Hari Raya Qurban update

I have been away for a few days for the Hari Raya Qurban holidays and to my amusement, my system is holding up much better than expected. Plants are doing ok and the fishes are still swimming happily. Water quality is also fine.

No worries now to take extended holidays!

Growbed update 13/10

The plants are growing very well although I see some leaves are yellowish in color. They could be either due to not enough sunlight or the system is having an iron deficiency.

It rained heavily for the past few days and some plants have either fallen flat on the ground or suffered leaf injuries from being hit by heavy raindrops.

I found a dead fish today and foud the water is dirtier than I expected. I suspect that one of the water outlets in from the pump that feeds back water inside the tank is creating a current that makes solid waste harder to be picked up and sent to the biofilter.

I will try to feed the extra water outlet to the growbed instead and see how that goes.

Update 10/10 - Palm sized Tilapias

#aquaponics Tilapia are about palm sized now and the plants are growing well. I'm starting to think those may not be Pak Choys. Any idea what they are?

Pakchoy Update 5/10

The Pak Choys are doing extremely well in my system. They're growing up to a good rate. I am very happy and hope to be able to harvest soon. I read that the plant is a CCA ( Cut and Come Again) veg so I hope to be able to come keep harvesting every week.

Growbed update 2/10.

Transplanted Pak Choys doing great. Water is crystal clear. Fishes are happy. Second round of lettuce seeds grew moldy and just not germinating
