Why use Aquaponics ?
Aquaponics is probably the fastest ‘up and coming’ way to grow Fruit & Vegetables.
And the logical next step if you’ve considered hydroponics.
It’s ideal if you
- Don’t have much space
- Would like to ‘Harvest’ vegetables all year round
- Get better yields & crops
- Use less water, without pesticides, at a lower costs but – grow more organic fruit & vegetables
Aquaponics is simply a way where you combine growing fruit & vegetables with a fish tank.
The Aquaponics 4 You™ manual is an intantly downloaded ‘eBook’ containing ‘step by step’ instructions and videos showing you how to make your own aquaponics system at home.
The beauty of this diy indoor aquaponics manual is that it’s designed for the absolute beginner so you will know exactly what to do.
The video below gives a quick introduction to how to build your own DIY aquaponics system :
Why is aquaponics so ideal for growing vegetables ?
An aquaponic system takes very little space and contains 3 key elements :
1. The fish tank
The core element to your aquaponics kit will be the fish tank. The manual will show you exactly how to make a fish tank to fit in with your objectives
Your fishes are the key to your system (because they provide the food for the plants) & a real ‘step up’ from hydroponics.
You can either simply ‘keep them’ for decoration or grow them to eat or sell (most popular)
- For example some people will grow fish to eat like Tilapia, Carp, Perch and even Trout.
- Whereas others keep them for decoration (or maybe a small ‘commercial side line’) and keep fish like Koi Carp or Goldfish
The manual will show you how to make sure that the water has the right temperature, PH level, light as well as the necessary amount of oxygen to accommodate the fish in good conditions.
2. Water circulation system
Linked to this you will need to install a water pump and circulation system. Yes, you will need to provide the right environment for your fish to thrive – but you also need to get the water (with the nitrates) to flow up to the roots and then back down again.
3. The grow bed
And finally you will need to provide a grow bed (on top of the tank) for your plants, which lets the roots ‘hang’ into your fish tank below.
(and of course you then need to place your system where there is plenty of light)
If you look at our guide to best plants for aquaponics you will see you can grow a wide variety of plants to fit in with your own likes, space (and light)
It sounds a lot more difficult than it is, but the key is to start with a simple plan.
