for the Freshwater Tropical Fish Keeper
Developing Aquaponics systems for growing organic vegetables in both a commercial and backyard location is a popular way to add food to the table.
The author provides DIY instructions for retrofitting a home tropical fish tank to exploit the benefits of aquaponics for freshwater tropical fish.
This creates an effective aquarium filter for a small to medium fish tank. The aquaponic filter efficiently expands the biological filter to include the removal of nitrate from the water the fish live in. Standard aquarium filtration cannot.
An aquaponic filter added to an existing home aquarium benefits the fish keeper. It safely reduces the need for water changes in an attractive and appealing way while growing healthy organic vegetables and herbs.
