Hello All, I am new to this forum. I would like to get some help from those who have experiance and can help me. I have an old green house in my farm, so i decided to make use of it since we didn't use it for a long time. Therefore, i decided to renew it and started my aquaponic in it with a total of 58 grow bed (IBC Tank). I connceted 1HP submersiable pump to the nearby fish pond (we have about 2000 Tilapia), the water comes and waters the grow bed for 45 minutes and then stops for 15 minutes. The plants aren't doing well! I honestly don't know why?! I tested the Ph last time and it was 7.6 I asked one of my local friends who have Hydroponic sysem and he said it might be because of the watering timing! He sugguest, i should water the plants for about 30 min. and stop the water for 3 hours and see how it goes, and if 3 hrs too much i should gradually decrease it to 2.5 hrs and so on till i get to the right level. <-- though I am hesitance about this; so thats why I searched in the net and came across this forum. I'll post a youtube video on what i've done and i hope i can see good feedback that will help me over comes this situation :-) Thanks all in Advance, Mohamed
