    Default Aquaponics

    Anyone tried this concept?

    Having traipses the tinterweb this last few weeks I am becoming intrigued in this concept of growing totally!

    Makes sence to me!

    Would love a bash even on a short scale just for a bit of fun!

    Is that Aquaponics or something different, Deano? If its a mistype, I'll change the title for you.

    We all know you mean Rary
    Are you including Fish in your Aquaponics? There seem to be so many similar words that I'm not sure what is what!

    Hydroponics, Aquaponics, Aquaculture..........???

    Just loving the thought of a system that recycles water, as this is now actually becoming an expensive commodity!



    Thank Gawd were not on a meter! It would cost us a fortune!

    Yeah! Fish poo as a feed, then the beds get filtered and feed back to the tank, a littl more compressive, just wondered if anyone else had played with it

    You can't use your bath water, Deano - although the plants might like the bubbles.
