This year promises to be a great year for my system. My system has been up and running for 11 months now. I am not checking my system like I have in the past. Last week my system had trace amounts of ammonia and Nitrites. My Nitrates were sitting between 20-40. PH was good. I recently added another outlet to my fish tank. The second outlet allows my to run a higher volume of water through the tank. It was necessary because saw a fungus growing on some of my goldfish.

I live in a small caribbean island, and there are limitations on species that are not local , can i just focus in the vegetable production and not in the raise of fishes? In that escenario, does it really matter the type of fish, can I use just local fishes or do they need specific characteristics in order to get the benefits of aquaponics (less watter, less energy, higher growth rates)? Help me please!
