Post bsfl auqaponics food
I have an aquaponics system that I am trying to do with minimal input so fish feed is something in trying to figure out, has anyone consistently made a decent inexpensive feed for aquaponics? It feels like such a waste to do a whole system only to feed them garbage soy/corn/fish meal. I'm growing a decent amount of azzolla rather then the more typically duck weed because it still has about a 30% protein dried and when it dies it releases all its nutes rather then like duck weed that can kill your whole system if it dies.

So for feed what I'm thinking is bsfl and pupea (can I use already dead ones from my compost or do I have to harvest fresh?)
Add a good amount of azzola as well as Chia seeds maybe some other vegative matter or beans.
Any help or suggestions would be awesome.

cboughner welcome to our forum :) If you'd like you can introduce yourself here (link).

I have no experience with aquaponics but I believe that others have said that fish prefer the immature pale larvae.

A member here, Tarvus, has used BSFL with his hydroponic system. You could search through his posts (link) and have a look at his videos (link).
