  • Aquaponics is a symbiotic relationship between fish, plants and bacteria.
  • The system works, Rainbow Trout are fed a high protein diet that puts waste into the bottom of the tank.
  • The waste is pumped up into the tray above the tank, the clay is full of millions of bacteria.
  • This nitrite bacteria fixes the ammonia, turns into nitrates which the plants eat and consume, cleaning the water which goes back into the tank.
