I'm just wondering if any SF members have built any aquaponic setups, either for traditional use in culturing fish and plants for food, or have they tried to use the technology and principles to produce ornamental fish and plants? Or even a combination of food and ornamental species!

Hi Jarcave,

 

I have built aquaponics set ups for all three purposes actually. Quite easy to do and for the most part the only thing I needed to add as far as plant growth was iron, which for the terrestrial plants I simply shoved a rusty nail into the substrate (expanded clay balls), sounds crude but my set ups were for personal research and interest. I am still to this day impressed with the results that I observed and hope to reproduce the systems again one day.I'm a bit pressed for time right now but can elaborate on my systems later if you wish.
