Our Aquaponics fish can be subjected to various difficulties that will cause them to be in a less-than-ideal situation leading to sickness and death. Most fish problems are human induced.
There are not that many diseases your Aquaponics fish can contract. If you buy your fingerlings from a hatchery that can issue a health certificate for the fish, then buy from that hatchery. It is well worth the little extra it may cost to buy fingerlings from a certified source. That way you start off well and provided you have good water quality and loads of aeration, there is a very good chance that your fish will not get sick.
Stress. Fish can easily become stresses by a number of factors. Do everything to keep your fish happy and feeling safe. Stress is detrimental to fish health just as it is for humans and any other animal. Prolonged stress sets the fish up for bad health outcomes.
Stress is identified by,

Hi All, I have a new tote system (1000 L tank) 1 grow bed and 4 lettuce chanels that has been running for 3 weeks now with plants (seedlings) for 2 weeks on seasol. My 20 fingerling jade perch (7 redclaw babies living in the sump) were put in on wed so have been in for 4 days now. The ph is settling down to 6.0 but amonia is 8ppm and Nitrate is 20ppm. I added 10mls of iron chelate this afternoon which seem to bring the ph down from 7.6 to 6.0 What can I do to bring amonia & nitrate levels down or should i just wait a bit more? Also do worms in the grow bed help? Thanks Tim
