Where Should You Place Your Aquaponic System

 Where Should You Place Your Aquaponic System



If you are decided to set up an aquaponic system in which to grow vegetables and fish for you and your family, there are some things which you should know. The types of fish, the seeds which can be propagated and the details about the appropriate water conditions are the basic notions you have to know before venturing in this activity. Once you know that you can start putting all the pieces of the puzzle together. Yet, another question arises: where should you place your aquaponic mini-garden?

PVC in Aquaponics

PVC in Aquaponics


Recently someone questioned me about using PVC pipe with an aquaponics system. My first response was it was safe. 

PVC is safe!...Millions of homes across the world have these pipes installed.
What was now running around in my head was "organic and safe food." I am big on research and so I set out to prove the PVC safety issue was fine.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Aquaponics

Advantages and Disadvantages of Aquaponics

We covered this briefly during the early part of our research phase but I though it would be good to provide some additional detail and opinion now that we have researched aquaponics in greater depth and have some personel experience.  It is obvious (from looking through this site) that I have a bais in favour of aquaponics (we have invested significant time, energy and money in aquaponics) though I have attempted to set this aside and provide an unbiased assessment of some of the claimed advantages and disadvantages. The purpose of this post is is to determine if there is evidence to support the commonly made claims found on forums and wedsites (and as important some of the perceived claims) and where there isn't to provide an opinion based on our experience and/or the information available.

The emphasis of this list is a discussion relating to back yard systems rather then commercial systems.

How tilapia grow in aquaponics

Tilapia Growth Chart


About 4 to 6 weeks from hatching, fingerlings should be about 1 gram, if culture temperatures are in the mid 80's (degrees F). The following table assumes that warm temperature range, moderate to aggressive feeding, in terms of percent biomass per day, and also assumes that fish stocking densities do not exceed 80kg per cubic meter (about 2/3rds pound per gallon)
