Updates on our off grid solar powered aquaponics system which has been running just over a week or so now.
I have fish and plants growing in the tanks now. I got fish a few days after I got the system running and then a few days after that I put in some plants.
The plants are growing well and took to their new environment happily.
The fish are eating mosquito larvae which I grow for them. Mosquitoes are a simple and free food for fish. You set out some water for a few days and suddenly it is full of free fish food. The fish love them and go into a feeding frenzy when I put more in.
I will do more updates as the system fills out some more. I want to put in about two times more fish than I have now once the plants start to fill out some.
