About the Aquaponics category

In hydroponics, you add nutrients in the water and are subsequently absorbed by the roots. Aquaponics is similar in the sense that you still feed the plants directly. A fundamental difference is that it uses nature to mimic a natural ecosystem. This system involves growing fishes in a tank. Its excrements feed bacteria, which in turn converts it into ready-to-use nutrients for the plants. If you have a question or two, fire them away.
