So I decided to start eating healthy and wanted to do my own aquaponics and I have a problem with going big or going home.
So I have had my stem running for about 3 months now, Havent had much problem with my fish I have 100+ perch have lost just 2 about a week ago they were much smaller then the rest going to hope that was just natural coarse. But I have about a 1500 gallon pool with a 4x8 media bed using lavarocks. I have 3 270w LED grow lights. My plants started really slow and continue to not grow well or die off. Only thing that is doing well is lettuce and strawberry. Although the strawberry grow in weird shapes. Pumpkins, Watermelon, broccoli and peppers have all died off. The tomato plants I planted 3 months ago are about 1' Tall and starting to die. When my lettuce touches the lava rocks they seem to rot or decay and same with my strawberries.
I am including some pictures if anyone has any ideas on what I could improve that would be awesome!
