Betta Cycle
The Hooked-on-
Hydroponics Cycle
No soil
It is a hybrid cycle made by combining two more well-known systems
A fancy name for raising fish to produce food
But this is a
wasteful
system
The betta cycle
begins with a healthy fish
But the fish begins
to produce waste
This waste is mostly ammonia and builds up steadily over time until...
The concentration of
ammonia makes the
environment too
toxic to live in
Solution:
The water must be constantly filtered to prevent the buildup of toxic ammonia
Hydroponics is a system
of cycling nutrient-filled
water through plant roots
This maintains an artificial environment where the plant nutrients can be closely regulated
Unlike traditional gardening, hydroponics involves letting the roots grow in a medium that lets the nutrients cycle in and out
Nutrients usually drawn from the soil are replaced by regularly adding store-bought nutrients
Nitrogen
Phosphorus
Potassium
These nutrients are
not cheap
Then they begin to build up
So the water is flushed out,
nutrients and all
