“Aquaponics is a food production system that couples aquaculture with hydroponics whereby the nutrient-rich aquaculture water is fed to hydroponically-grown plants, where nitrifying bacteria convert ammonia into nitrates.”

That is my goal for the fountain gifted to me. It’s been a nice diversion, assembling and creating aesthetic appeal.

However, my success selecting proper plants and keeping them alive is dubious. It would be prudent to conduct some research, although the dying plants are contributing to rich nutrients.

Tomorrow I plan on introducing some fish.
