Hello Aquaponics community

I was looking for ways to set up a diy drip system for my garden a few months ago and stumbled on Aquaponics. Needless to say i was hooked right away. I started my first setup using 2 tubs and a pump i found at homedepot. I used feeder fish at first and kale seeds. Everything did great, but now i jumped in to a 600gal tank that i got from a local plastics store in nova, and all my fish died right away (36 hrs). I had my water tested at Petco and all the guy there said was that my nitrite levels were a little high. I'm going to get my own test kit but was wondering if anyone out there had any suggestions because I'm planing on using catfish, and I have herd that they are sensitive to high ammonia and nitrite because they have no scales.?

Thanks in advance

Hi Adam,

To do successful Aquaponics it is important that you understand some of its underlying principles, The following is a link to a tutorial on our home page. In particular you should follow the link on fishless cycling.

Getting a test kit is a very good idea
