Aquaponics Journal for Stoned Tropical Fish Keepers: Home Aquaponics System Maintenance Journal for Organic Marijuana Cultivation
Monitoring any Aquaponics System, new or established, is vital to success. This is especially important for a Home Aquarist who is using aquaponic techniques to grow organic marijuana for personal or medicinal use.Using this organic gardening journal to track the progress of bnoth the fish tanks and the marijuana growth in the aquaponic filter, it is easy to monitor your aquarium and aquaponic filter system for all the important facets needed to keep the system healthy, robust and productive. Water characteristics such as Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate, Ph, Phosphate are important for both the growing plants and the fish that provide the fertilizer to thrive.Aquaponics Journal for the Stoned Tropical Fish Keeper is designed to track one or many systems. In the beginning, weekly or even daily tracking is recommended. Once the system has reached biological filter stability, testing might only be required every two weeks, depending on the crop lifecycle. Other factors for success with the aquarium like water changes, water evaporation replacement, filter maintenance, temperature tracking are important. Humidity, fertilization and light duration are also tracked for the plants in the system.New aquaponic systems have certain challenges. Water testing is imperative to prevent unexplained fish loss during the establishment of the Nitrogen cycle. Ammonia and nitrite need to be watched carefully in the first six weeks to two months. Even after bacterial filter initiation, Nitrate levels should be watched to ensure the plants continue to control it as part of their growth requirements.
