Interesting question.

Let me answer your question with a question. Where do you think it would fit better: growies or critters?

Probably growies -- or just merge with the fish subsubforum since half of those posts are aquaponics already.

Or let The aquaponics mod decide.

However i've learned a lot about aquaponics since it's been in the building section...

Because it requires a great deal of building. Tanks and pumps... pipes and Plumbing... lighting and Heating... it is a significant manufacturing process.

Thanks Paul. That makes a lot of sense.
