This plant an sent out a runner that has rooted itself in the gravel.
Before adding fish to an aquaponic system, the system must be cycled.
What this means is bacteria must be grown to convert the fish waste ammonia into nitrate.
To do this I add fish emulsion to the tanks. Every day adding about 1/4 to 1/2 cup to each tank, after a week the bacteria is usually fully established and any fish emulsion that is added is quickly converted to nitrate.
A note of caution when cycling your Aquaponic system
With all that available nitrate plants will grow rapidly, be sure to have enough plants in the system to absorb that nitrate or algae will begin to grow and soon become the dominate plant in the system.
