Aquaponics is pretty amazing. The idea is that fish eat, than poop. The fishy poop water feeds plants and the plants clean the water for the fish. The result is super fast growing plants and healthy fish. You can eat both of them, even. Or just eat the plants and give the fish names and become buddies that you will never eat. no way. Your call.
The basic idea is simple. The system is made of three areas:
-The Fish Tank
Water (full of fish poop of course) from the fishtank flows into the growbeds. When the beds are close to full, the water is flushed into a sump. The water from the sump is pumped back up into the fishtank and the cycle begins again.
