Aquaponics 2: Hands-On Class
Aquaponic System Build + Lunch + Aquaponic System Workbook
What does my system need in order to thrive? How do I balance Fish/Plant/Microbe needs? Where do those needs overlap?
What kinds of fish/plants can I grow? What are the different components I can use to build my system? How many fish should I use? How do I cycle my system? what type of maintenance can i expect?
Our Aquaponics 2 class is hands-on and designed for those who have a base knowledge of Aquaponics and want a deeper understanding on how to design a system and what it will take to run it. We will delve into: biodiversity and bio-availability of nutrients; choosing fish and plant species; approved construction materials; pumps; aeration; water chemistry; plant/fish biology and health; pest management; stocking density; cycling a system; and smart design for maximum output with minimal input. After lunch, we will line a DWC floating raft bed and install a bell siphon to complete a home system. You will receive a workbook with detailed schematics and item/cut lists for this system.
