Aquaponics is the combination of hydroponics and aquaculture. Nutrient rich water from the fish is used to feed the plants and the plants filter the water for the fish. My team members Jackie Starker, Jesse Gerard and I are designing a home aquaponics system for the farmphilly project we are currently working on in my Design Studio class that I mentioned in an earlier post. The above photo is a rough, quick setup as a study model system. Next steps are getting the grow light attached and plants. I will be updating the progress of the project on here periodically.
