Needed Tips and Advice

We are converting our 100 gallon hydroponics Ebb and Flow Table to aquaponics. The only knowledge we have is what we've gained from internet (videos, forums, etc.). We have a 1000 gallon pond that we'd like to incorporate into the system. I understand cycling and the importance of measuring Ph, Amonia, etc., but am a little vague on how to get the system ready for plants and fish.

Any tips?

Here a link to our blog with a few photos (more to come, we're slow to blog).

Thanks. I'm looking forward to learning from you all.

No it will not, Tues Aug 28th is the last class. This is the first class in AP Seattle parks and Rec has offered. I have written a proposal to start similar classes on a larger scale with adults (the younger youth are not really my favorite to teach, takes a special kind of teacher that isn't me, lol) I hope they approve the proposal and i can continue.

Welcome Scotty!

 

Thanks for joining the Aquaponic Gardening community!  I hope you find it a fun place to explore aquaponics.  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. 

 

A great place to start is to read the “How to Use This Site” link on the upper right corner, “Start Here” section of the Home page.  You might also find the “Aquaponic Gardening Rules of Thumb” guidelines helpful.

 

Please participate and check in with us every day!  We are constantly posting news about aquaponics and the good food movement.

 

Thanks again for joining us, and I look forward to getting to know you.
