Hello from tokyo

5 celsius outside

The fishpool is heatet to 25c with all my Tilapias alive and eating well.Ammonia is a little high but ok.

The growbed wich i put on the second floor have 8 hours of daylight has root-temperatur of 20c but it seems that my small plant are not doing well,even i covert them with a clear plasticsheet.

Has somebody an good idea?

Happy Holidaywishes from tokyo and thank you all for the replies from this year,especialy to Silvia Queen of Aquaponics.

Queen?  Really?  Yikes!   Alfred, I worry about the number of hours of light - 8 is far below optimal for most plants.  Ideally 16 hours is a nice average, with a little more or less depending on the plant type and stage of growth it's in.  Can you put some artificial lights on it?

 

Has your water cleared up?

Yes i have but it cost me a bit.I think i have to wait until march becourse in tokyo the next house is only meters away and there windows would be lightend up for an other 6 hours.I dont want to discomfort theme.Carrot are dying but salads are alive soso every thing crows very slow.

Water cleared up i released 150 liters or so.Littlebit cloudy but ok,still the Fish(Tilapia) are happy so it seems.

I had already some of my japanese friends visiting me who admired my AP and some want to do it to.But i think i am a lousy teacher so i will contact you my favorit teacher Queen of AP a lot more.

What are your nitrate levels?

Hi Alfred,

 

In my experience three things effect plant growth the most

 

1. Ph ( Ideal range between 6.5-7)

2. Water Temperature ( Ideal is between 22 - 27)

3. Light 

 

My tomatoes and eggplant weren't doing well at 20C but once i raised the water temperature to 24C i started getting some good growth. This is from my experience with aquaponics. Hope it helps
