I'm new to Aquaponic gardening. Like 3 weeks new. I'm using a deep water culture system with nutrients at the moment. I hope to graduate to fish soon. So I'm in the learning an experimentation stages. All help and suggestions are accepted!!
Make sure you have enough filtration for your amount of fish and don't over stock your fish in relation to your filtration. For DWC you might need to add some extra filter material to provide surface area for the bacteria to colonize and to help keep the solid fish wastes from building up on plant roots.
