I am setting up an indoor aquaponic system, using flood and drain. My homemade fish tank has approximately 350 gallons of water right now (it can hold more). Currently I have 4 grow beds, 3 of which I just planted with tomatoes, strawberries and lettuce. I am using hydrokorn as the growing media in the 3 beds and plan on using 3/4" gravel in the 4th to compare. I am using LED lights, I am still working out the appropriate distance from the grow beds - still learning... I have not added fish yet, I am waiting until I get the chemistry right.
Hi Charlotte thank you for adding me as a friend. I am really interested in the LED's and what you have found out about them. I saw from Murrays blog email sent out that you had them at the show. I would have liked to have gone but just couldn't. What can you tell me about growing with them? Are those 600watt output units you have? Do you know what the lumen amount from them is?
Hi Char! Happy to see my good buddy finally officially in here...it's about dang time, lady ;-).
There is a real blend of experienced and new aquapons in this community, so please don’t hesitate to get in there and start asking questions. Everyone is quite happy to help out new members – no question is too basic.
