Who is this for ?
Anyone completely new to aquaponics and would just ‘test it’ (as well as having a real talking point)
However, if you are serious about growing your own food at home, then do have a look at the home aquaponics kit.
It is a scaled down to a table-top system.
This is how it works :
- Fish waste, which is toxic to the fish if allowed to accumulate, is pumped through an inner tube in the tank into a grow tray above containing plants.
- The plant roots act as a biofilter where beneficial bacteria break down the harmful ammonia in the waste into nitrites and then finally nitrates which are absorbed as food by the plants.
- The clean water is circulated back into the fish tanks so all you have to do is feed the fish!
