High everybody. I’m so glad to have found this forum. I’m kinda new at aquaponics. However, making the transition from hydroponics wasn’t that bad really. Actually it’s been friggin awesome. I love this growing technique. I’ve never been much of a “store bought” person, I’m always looking to improve things. So after some research and hours of videos from experienced “aquafarmers” I designed my own system that allows the plants and fish to coexist in the same tank. Of course, it took some trial and error on my part to fine tune it. But, it’s worth the time and effort by giving you back free time and use less effort. It practically takes care of itself like a mini ecosystem.
