It will be sometime before my new aquaponics setup ready, meanwhile the old one need to go on. Fishes, after my last addition is doing fine, but there are too few plants on the growbed to clean the water properly.
I hook up a prefilter to one of the bed, so that water will have less fish solids as it enter. It a quickie job since this setup is temporary while new one conditioned. I use a 30 watt aquarium pump for filter inlet.
Diagram above is type of filter used. I will check on the effectiveness of this filter after a week, if a lot of fish solids drained out then its good. Click here for detail diagram of filter.
Fern doing well, I can see new roots forming and new fiddle heads sprouting out. These fern was subjected to a few transplanting while I'm moving the beds. It will take another 2 weeks of so for them to recover.
Tomato and Chili seeds we sprinkle on the bed, it germinate and give it another week or so I'll trim down to ensure healthy growth.
As I mentioned previously, I don't expect the plants to do well, it need at least 2 to 3 months for growbeds to mature at best about 4 months.
