It is used to grow good crops. How it works - Aquaponics works by filtering out the water and turning the air into oxygen. The best plant to use - The best plants to cultivate are either leafy greens, or herbs, but depending on the density of the fish tanks and the nutrient content of fish waste, you could probably use anything. Types of planting media - the best types are Gravel, coco peat, perlite, and vermiculite because there good in nutrition, and will also do good in an aquaponics invironment. Best fish species for aquaponics - the best fish species I would use would have to be trout, perch, and bass, because they can tolerate a fish tank, and the water in the tank. Best plant species for aquaponics - the best plant species people said would be best were herbs like lettuce, spinach, chives, basil and watercress because they have low/medium nutritional requirements, and will do well in an aquaponics system. Tempurature requirements - you need to maintain a temperature of 70 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit Filtration needed - you need constant filtration to circulate the air into oxygen. Pump - you need and energy efficient pump. Another pump is needed to move water from the fish tank to the plant bed or pvc pipe. Two proposed designs -
