Aquaponics Supplies

I got many query on where do I get my growbed media. This serve as to show where is it so that it would be easier for those that wanting to get same item.

These are for people staying in and around the Klang Valley area, other parts of the country I am not familiar with.

Note : I will update this page if I manage to get information on other places.

LECA (Hydroton)

Wellgrow Horticulture stock these and a 50 Liter bag cost RM 75.00 (2014 price).

Location of WellGRow horti is along Selangor Grean Lane Lot No 19.
GPS : 3.188508,101.578517

That's their sign board, and right opposite a Toyota Service Center.

Best to contact this guy for LECA.


I go to Pebbles Concept House lot 48 along the same road, price range from RM 6 ~ 12 per bag of 20kg depending on grade. The RM 6.00 is the cheapest but it will do for Aquaponics. A 3 ft growbed that I use require 10 bags.

Their location is on the Selangor Green Lane and GPS : 3.166066,101.568239 for Google map.


There are few Lot doing Aquarium supplies too, 

Dragon Aquatic Supplier at Lot 62 is one of them.

Those blue tub that I use goes for RM 110.00 for the 3 ft (growbed) tank and RM 250.00 for the 4ft (fish) tank..


 If you are in Klang Valley, there is a place in Subang New Village and Lot 62 of Selangor green lane where they do Tilapia. They sell each fingerling at RM 0.20.

Tilapia is a cheap fish not many place want to keep stock since they eat and require same attention as that of more expensive fish.

Below is their location

Some of the RM 0.25 Tilapia Fingerling, these cost more but after taking consideration of how far you need to travel to get a cheaper ones, this is a better option.

GPS : N3.14498 E101.53768

Tilapia Supplier in Janda Baik area.

That's the contact number if anyone interested, many other place nearby to this and all almost same in their setup.

GPS : N3.32699 E101.86375

Many fingerling in this tank, about 2 to 3 inches.

Below  is another Fish nurseries that is bigger than above but at same location.

I am not in any way affiliate with these retailers and their pricing subject to changes and probably how well you can bargain.


  1. Affnan,

    This is one of your greatest posts!

    Keep it up!

    1. Thanks Mahfudz, how's you Aquaponics set doing ?

  2. This is a very useful post...Btw, can i ask what feed you use for your fish ? Any recommended brand or homemade recipe? :D

    1. Nothing special, during fingerling I use rice bran, small fish pellet (those reddish coloured, high protien) and once bigger some kitchen scrap, Aquaponics leafy plants and bigger fish pellet (the brownish colour).

      Normally that's it, and no particular brand, I buy one 20 Kg bag about RM65.00 from Aquarium shop, these will last about 6 months.

    This is a really useful reference. With the MCO and everything, I think I might give this a try. Now going through the rest of your blog posts to try to learn more.

  11. Aquaponics uses these two in a symbiotic combination in which best plants for aquaponics are fed the aquatic animals' discharge or waste.
