Aquaponic Growing Systems

September 1, 2018

Aquaponic systems use water from the tank, and the waste produced by the fish grown in the tank, that are circulated into the grow bed to feed the plants suspended in the water. The plants then filter the water, which is circulated back to the fish tank.

Aquaponic systems also add the complication of maintaining animal life. They are fascinating, and excellent for growing plants indoors.
