What is Aquaponics?

Aquaponics is a sustainable method of growing food using fish waste as fertilizer in hydroponic grow beds.  Food and other plants are grown in water, without soil, usually using a hydroponic grow media such as hydroton or lava rock (or a combination).  The fish waste provides nutrients for the plants and the plants filter the water for the fish.  You never have to change the water in your system.  That means you SAVE A TON OF WATER, up to 90%.  Having your own indoor aquaponics garden can be easy and very rewarding!  Plus you pretty much grow free food (or at least a whole lot cheaper than buying it, and better too!)
