One has to know about aquaponics how to make and supervise before going to establish personal one. Some preliminary knowledge is most important for proper management of home aquaponics. In the aquaponics system, both vegetable and fish can be cultivated collectively with easy effort and possible on a limited land area.
Aquaponics how to build at home i.e. home aquaponics building procedure is given below for easy understanding and adopting:
- First one should know about the component part of a home aquaponics system. The home aquaponics especially the summer one is composed of three basic parts. The basic parts are fish species, plant progeny and adequate amount of bacteria. Bacteria are very unique component of this system. One can say, the system run only for the activity of bacteria. The fish species provide nutrients to plant but how does plant provide the same to fish? This is the working area of bacteria. Bacteria are sole responsible for the decomposition of plant parts and make them uptake able to fish species. Thus, three parts are very important to make it symbiosis one.
- After being conscious about the three components, you should collect the more or less huge water storage pot or container of about 300 gallon holding capacity from the used market place. Make them clean with fresh water. Then you should make cutting points on the container in order to make it 3 different parts. The well designed saw can be used to cut this large sink. One may make it two parts. Then one may fasten the upper portion with the car ties to the bottom one in case of two parts and have to rotate the upper portion in approximately hundred and eighty degree in order to provide adequate room for placing a reservoir for ensuring the ebb and flow cycle.
- Then a suitable reservoir is to be set up with the system with an outlet hose. The reservoir should be re-useable having about 100 gallon capacity and made of galvanized steel sheet. For better and long lasting the outer region should be painted with any suitable paint but latex one is highly recommended. The inside is also to be painted with Pond Shield.
- After proper setting of the mentioned items, you should give emphasis in selecting fish. The most used fish species in the aquaponics system are Talapia, goldfish and carp fingerling. You should buy some fish food in relation to selected fish which are needed for first few days to keep them alive.
- Then you have to know aquaponics how to use plant species. The plant parts supply the food for the fish species. The basic vegetables used in aquaponics system are tomato, onion, basil, pepper, lettuce, zucchini etc. Mainly the roots of these plants are edible to the fishes.
This is all about the aquaponics how to make it easily and by following these above mentioned easy steps, one may have a nice or satisfactory home aquaponics system.
