Aquaponics -Update

I have not been doing a good job of posting updates lately, so here is a catch up.

We did a clean up of all our tanks and growbeds and the next batch of plants are already getting close to harvest, bitter gourd had been the first which I posted a couple of days ago. 

Here are some pictures… eight weeks of growth.

New batch of vegetables (tomato, cabbage, cauliflower, eggplant / brinjal, mint)

Smaller growbed for climbers

Growth after two weeks

Growth after six weeks

Mint with big leaves, may be due to shade of other plants

Aquaponics – tomato

Aquaponics – New batch of plants

Since the last growbed cleanup, next batch of crops are growing up fairly well.

I have cucumber, tomato, long beans, ridge gourd and mint planted. This system has fewer fish, about fourteen. Twelve out of them were born and brought up in the farm (Babies in the fish tank) 🙂 I need to add more fish into this tank soon.


In the new smaller growbed that I posted last time, things are not looking as good. It has one long beans and one cumber planted. Cucumber is looking good but long beans plant isn’t looking very healthy. I think this growbed needs a bit more gravel in it. In certain areas of the growbed I can almost see water at the top. I need to research this a little further on this growbed. Hmmm…
