Hi from Australia,
Question on flood and drain cycle.
I’m running a small aquaponics system as a test run, later will upgrade to a much larger scale
It’s outdoors, I’ve got 7 gold fish in it.
Large scale will go in garage and I’m going to run 2 or 3 1000 watt HID grow lights and bigger eating fish native to Australia.
Plants I’m growing are,
Auto blue dream and a mango reg, plus a few kale plants which are coming out later, I put them in to test the system and see if it grow quickly, surprisingly it’s amazing and now I’m hooked on aquaponics, I use to dwc, aquaponics is winning at the moment by a few things, but that’s my personal experience.
At the moment I’m running a cycle that’s,
Every hour, 1 x 15 minutes flood and drain, 24 hours.
I’ve been told to change it to
2 x 15 minute cycles every 1 hour, 6am to 6pm then have 1 x 15 minute cycle at midnight.
Is this right?? Or what would you suggest?
I’ve posted pictures so you can see what stage I’m upto
This is week 5
