This is my first update on my mini indoor aquaponics system. Only in 3 days, the ammonia level increased to 1.0 ppm / (1.0 mg/l), compared to 3 days ago ammonia level at 0.25 ppm. I don't know at what level does the ammonia level threat the fish, and how long it will take to get the nitrification bacteria to colonize the grow bed.
I have made some adjustment to the system, instead of continue to use the flood and drain system, I change it to constant flood system. With such small pump, plumbing system and inappropriate height, siphon surely don't work right. Thanks to Mr. William Aska Lim.
