I was accidently introduced to aquaponics when browsing the net, i've been observing the forum from the sidelines for months , until i set up my system with a 2000 litre tank and 2 simple beds. i raised about 50 red tilapias from 1ins and now it is about 8 ins and around 400gms abt 21/2 months. I planted lettuce, tomatoes, basil , chinese cabbage and mint. the basil did not grow on the growbed (soil Bed) Chinese cabbage died when I planted in the system. Lettuce grew to about 10 ins and died in the system. tomatoes grew very excellently until flowering and then suddently wilted, the plants were about 2 feet. First i thought the sun was too hot (malaysia) so i put up a shed for the plants, but it was not so. The mint were fantastic i have harvested a few times in 2 months

Why is it the Mint survived and the other plants wilted?
The fish are very healthy, I don't have a sum tank, just direct to plants and back, but the water is dirty very fast, need recycling of fresh water every 3 days.
I have mosquitoes breeding in the growbed ? how to stop the breeding.

Please help?

It might be best if you start a thread in Member Systems so you can describe your system and get help with it. It does not really help your case to post the same questions in several forum areas since you will get different answers in different places and it can be confusing to people.
