Just a Quick Post

This is just a quick add on to the earlier post today. I had not checked the water in a while. After talking to Mat Wirt  a Charter Captain down in the Lower Cape Fear area, who also is into Aquaponics, I decided to go ahead and test my water. Mat t raised a concern that my bio filter might not be letting enough of the nutrients through that the plants need. So today I took samples directly from one of the spray bars on the grow beds . Here are the results

High PH Reading 7.4

Ammonia  .50 ppm

Nitrite   2ppm

Nitrate  between 80-160 ppm

So I am happy with those readings looks like it is cycling pretty good now.
