"IBC System Start-Up and Monitoring"
I am in the process of setting up a 3 IBC container system and I am looking for some pointers and advice for monitoring and testing procedures once the system is up and running. Or even advice on getting the system started.
Do you suggest any daily procedures for getting on top of all the parameters that need to be monitored to ensure that you have healthy fish and plants. We intend to have tilapia as our fish, do you have any suggestions for the best plants we should go in tandem with the tilapia??
My team and I are new to aquaponics and we have intentions to use this three IBC system to learn the practical side of operations before moving on to a larger set up.
All your advice will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Isaac,Any plants that normally grow in your area will be fine. Generally, any plant where the crop is above the ground such as leafy greens and fruiting plants such as Tomatoes do well.Testing, It is a good idea to have a "Freshwater Test Kit" pH is possibly the most important test, although in the early stages ammonia test is carried out daily.It is a good idea to start with a smaller system to learn how it all works.I hope this is helpful to you.
