The Aquaponic Gardening Edge

The idea of the system is to mimic the natural symbiosis between plants and animals. The primary benefit to the plants in an aquaponic garden is that the fish excrement from the fish tank provides an excellent source of nutrients for the plants when processed by microbes in the system. As a result, you no longer need to add various fertilizers to the aquaponics water supply to provide the necessary nitrites and nitrates.
