Pros and Cons of Different Types of Aquaponics Systems
Aquaponics is a combination of fish farming (aquaculture) and the growing of plants in the nutrient solution (hydroponics). Aquaponics is a recirculating system where fish are reared in a fish tank. The fish waste which is ammonia is converted into nitrates by the bacteria and become nutrients for the plant roots to absorb. The plant roots will filter the water before it returns to the fish tank for another cycle.
