Aquarium water in DWC


#1

Can I use my aquarium water in my DWC???

I don’t know about the aquarium water. Don’t want to tell you something wrong. I do know that I use tap water and a water conditioner, like you would in an aquarium, and it works great

Aqueon Aquarium Tap Water… https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00176AYTI?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf
This is what I use.
2.5ml for 5gal water. I have a 50gal system, so I only use 25ml when I do a complete change. At that rate, a gallon last a long time


And the plants seem to like it

Please tell me about the water conditioner

It removes chlorine and chloride IMMEDIATELY, plus your tap water contains beneficial elements. I don’t use as much calmag for one

I saw an article where the guy was using his aquarium AS the DWC. Fish and everything. Claimed the fish-poop fed the plants.

Sounds promising. I feel an experiment of my own in the wind I think

It’s definitely a thing people do grow this way.

That’s a beautiful thing. A few nice ones would look brilliant in that setup.
