I wanted to try aquaponics and i read a lot and watch videos on how to setup and maintain etc.
It seem tricky to start and make it run by itself but you have to deal with two system: plants and fishes.
I watched videos at the Home Grown Food Summit and one of those was James Fry talking about permaponics.
I understand it can also be called bioponics and does not need fishes for inputs.
Here is a video about it not by James Fry but he compared hydroponics, aquaponics and bioponics.
