It is actually very basic. I didn't really do much, as most of the stuff can be readily bought from a LFS.

Cheating a little. Injecting some leftover nutrient solution into the wool of each seedling to give them a headstart.

Will the nutrient solution affect the fishes?
I separate my LECA use in nutrients and aquaponic, worry the nutrients may affect the fishes if mix them!

My 4ft tank of water is very stable. After adding a teaspoon of seachem flourish trace, and 5ml of balance nutrient into each of the wool of the 24 pots of naibai, the water parameters barely increased.

But for small tank, it will affect the water parameter, due to the volume of the water.

Yeah, Wakins are easier than ranchus, at least I don't have to worry about swim bladder issues. And they look like mini kois when when grow bigger.

I think there is too little nutrient in the water. I am using syringe to supplement the naibai till my fishes are much bigger.

Some updates.
Added 3 more wakins (The redder ones). My water is still very good despite not doing water change for long time. Existing wakins are growing to 3 inches already, but still not producing enough waste. I will have to supplement the plants with some nutrient fed via a syringe for awhile.

The customed 4ft LED lights finally arrived yesterday.
2 rows of RGB lights and 3 rows of whites.
I switched to the blue lights for vegetables growth.

I switched to LED lights, so now they are switched on by the timer from 10:30am to 9pm.
