I know there are cob bathtubes but I was wonder about setting up an aquaponics system using mostly cob, waterfleas, algae, duckweed, and ordemental plants. The main reason for the system is to not use plastics mostly and to clean waste water such as (butchery gray water, human waste, pet waste (dog,cats, sick farm animals)--- the goal is by the end it has "cleaned" the water .. so i guess it would be a mix of a lot of systems ... also again to avoid using plastics. using Chinampa? as much as i can and bamboo in places for floats? I am not sure what could be in the systems besides the algae and water fleas and duckweed. Any idea's what type of cob i could use like mixture types? or maybe dumping the cob and going with something else. ? also no pond liner.
