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.

Cost: $200 per person. 20% discount for groups of 2+ or if you sign up for this class and Aquaponics 1.

Includes: Class workbook; system build workbook; lunch
