What is one of the basic things that a creature needs to live? That’s right, food. In an aquaponics system there are many choices of fish feed. Depending on the different fish, different kinds of food may be desired. Some people decide to go with duckweed, which is a plant that floats on water. However, duckweed can be expensive and for people operating on a budget, it may not be the best choice. Another food is worms. Worms are a good source of protein, and are what some fish eat in the wild. Another choice is just regular fish food that can be purchased at a pet store. This feed is considerably cheaper and easier to find. Grains such as soy, barley and beer also show promise for fish feed. If raising a species of fish such as tilapia, do not put grown tilapia in a tank of fingerlings, as the adult tilapia will eat the fingerlings.
