It works just like a Walstad bowl / planted aquarium lol. Fish provide fert for plants and CO2, plants clean water and return O2.

Intro on some aquaponics systems: plantedspace.com/howto/set-up-design/ite...uction-to-aquaponics, nothing good out really, and mostly overpriced. Better to DIY.

Aerogardens are really gimmicky and you can't do much in it, I'm going to eventually build something like Peter has here.

I took a look at that.. It was pretty darn cool..
His setup was amazing..
I'm starting to think that maybe african violets would do you really well in here..

I killed the giant tomato plant, it was looking sad and wouldn't yield much fruit anyway, and the 3 RCS in here died.

-- Restart --

Day 1.
Changed water (prob old ferts that killed fauna), added in 2 more RCS, some MTS. Planted lettuce seeds.

I removed the RCS and had to replant the lettuce seeds, not enough bioload to even feed lettuce, and my old grow light are out, replaced with 2 platy fry, left the MTS inside. Lettuce doing amazing:





Platies are fat, not sure from what, I feed sparingly.

Moved platies into pond. Finally restarted this with some new lettuce:
