Open Top Tanks

Aquaponics is a system of aquaculture in which the waste produced by farmed fish or other aquatic animals supplies nutrients for plants grown hydroponically, which in turn purifies the water. Aquaponics Grow Beds are the foundation and backbone of your Aquaponics System. Your Grow Bed is the place where your fruits and vegetables are grown and nurtured. An Aquaponics Grow Bed will take up the majority of the space in your growing operation but it will also provide you with the the majority of the food that your system produces.

Aquaponics Systems have two main components. The Grow Bed and the Fish Tank. Since the Grow Bed is going to grow food and the fish tank is going to raise fish, it is nessesary to use Food Grade plastics in your grow operation. When the water is run through the Grow Bed, these nutrients get taken up by the plants. The plants oxidize and clean the water and then it's returned to the fish, ready for the next cycle. The scientific name for this process is called the Nitrogen cycle. Your Aquaponics Growbed is essentially a Bio-Filter.
