Are You A Three Toed Sloth?
Have you ever heard of aquaponics? Whether you are a sloth or not, by the end of this article we are going to have you nose deep into aquaponics.
Well if you haven’t don’t feel like you have been living under a rock, no one deserves to not know about this amazing ecosystem.
What Exactly Is Aquaponics?
Aquaponics is a system through which plants and fish are grown in harmony.  The fish are let to grow in a tank of water, and their excrements are later sent to a bed of plants that uses the fish feces as a source of manure. The plants filter out the waste from the fish and send the water back to the plants clean and full of oxygen. You could dive deeper here https://allneedoff.com/best-aquaponics-fish-tank/#more-231. In total honesty aquaponics wasn’t invented all on its own, it was formed out of the marriage and graceful union of hydroponics (plant growth in water without the use of soil) and aquaculture (the augmentation of fish). Well both systems were amazing in their own way but both seemed to have a problem with their own waste. The plants couldn’t get the nutrients they required and the fish seemed to toxify the water after a while.
With the basic science lesson out of the way, I hope you have a basic idea about how the entire aquaponics system works.
