The beans planted in the soil was planted a week before the beans planted in the aquaponic system.
See the difference in plant size.

I did a good cleanup of the aquaponic system, restocked with 60 off 20 gram Red Tilapia.
The fish are really doing well and my water parameters for the fish are good.
The fish are happy.

Post Re: The fly has bitten
An update of my aquaponic system.
I started the system fresh...complete cleanup of the system.
I bought 60 off red tilapia +-20 grams each.
The fish were delivered and went into the system on 26/11/2018.
Fish are healthe and growing well.
I have bean feeding the fish a high protein tilapia pellet and worm every now and then, but i have to mention i have noticed the fish would rather eat pellets
:D
