What do you feed … What do you feed the fish?
leebog31. You do … leebog31. You do not want to use tap water from city water source. Sometimes well water can be used, but test it before use to make sure it is safe. You want to try your best to not add too much water at one time and/or water that has floride, chlorine or other added elements as this will upset the bacteria and cause fluctuations in PH and balance over all. I have never tried growing potatoes in my systems, but I know carrots can be grown. Thanks for watching.
Can you grow … Can you grow anything like potatoes and carrots or just plants that grow fruit upright?
I’m new to this. I … I’m new to this. I want to make one. I was wondering kind of water do you use? You get it from the lake or is it fluorinated tap water? The tap water you have to change the PH levels and stuff right? Thanks.
44redman1- you … 44redman1- you most definitely eat the produce, and doesn’t kill the fish.

molinobeer, They … molinobeer, They create effluent-rich water that is broken down by beneficial bacteria resulting in food that the plants can utilize. ( Fish – Ammonium - bacteria – nitrites – nitrates – plants).
What do the … What do the goldfishs do in there?
Thanks, padkisson. … Thanks, padkisson. @ neogardener, I don’t have much problem with pest. Being that the system is outdoors there is some pest, but not like my plants in the soil garden. I use food grade DE around the base of the system to keep a lot of the problems at bay. This system and another greenhouse system I have are using goldfish, but my test system uses perch and tilapia. Just about any fish will work. It is truly amazing how well the plants grow in these systems. Thanks for your comments.
Your system looks … Your system looks really impressive. I just want to know if you have had any problem with pest infestation so far since your system is placed outdoors. Are you just using gold fish in your aquaponic system? Your tomato plants really look so healthy. Please keep us posted on the development of your plants. Thanks.
Very nice job. … Very nice job. That is quite a system!!!
