As i gather more and more info about all this aquaponics malarky, i'm wondering about the possibility and feasibility of running 2 (smaller) fish tanks in the one system.
Instead of having, say one 1,000l tank with one species in it, running the requsite sustainible amount of growbeds, what about a tank of tilapia on one side, and a tank of koi carp on the other? (or some other configuration...it dosnt matter at this stage of my thinking)
The tilapia would be grown for food, but the koi (which i hear are slower growing?) would be both a hobby and for relaxation purposes. I dont think the two breeds get on all that much, and, besides, it makes sense in my logical mind to keep 'em separate.
Anyone running similar, or have knowledge if it would work OK.
