Aquaponics: All fish are dead. No seedlings have sprouted. As they were permanently submerged in cold water, preventing them from sprouting, I have put the pump on a 15on/45off timer and added hydroponics solution in the now empty tank. Hopefully this will allow the seeds to sprout and to grow normally in hydroponic conditions, before new fish are brought and the system is perfected.

Support/supplies needed: potting soil
