PH is an important parameters in both aquarium and aquaponics system. In aquarium, you need to know the PH levels/range in which your fish is best suited for in order to gain an optimal growth and ensure survival. In aquaponics however, you need to consider an additional plant component. Plant generally requires a lower PH range than fish. In a typical proper working aquaponics system, the PH could range between 6.2 to 7.0 depending on your fish and plant type. PH level exceeding this range does not mean you will surely kill your fish or plant, but you may experience stunted growth on your fish or plant. Also, in a proper running aquaponics system, your PH will be trending lower to eventually less than 6.2 due to nitrification process. When this is happening, you need to raise your PH level by carry out partial water change or addition of new water.
That is why it is important to constantly monitor your PH level. For measurement of PH, there is a digital PH meter that provides you with instant result upon dipping it in the water. However, it is prone to calibration issues and may not be consistently accurate. It is always best to have a API PH Test Kit to verify your results getting from one another, vice versa.
