So I have an established aquaponics system. For those who don't know, aquaponics is the cycle of bacteria, fish and plants. Fish make waste that contains ammonia, bacteria convert the ammonia into nontoxic nitrates, and the plant act as a filter by absorbing the nitrates into their roots, allowing the plants to grow. I think it's a neat idea to use this system to grow herbs as well as keep any fishy or aquatic familiars. Right now i'm just growing some basic herbs, like anise, fennel, basil, oregano, etc. What do you guys think? I think this idea has a lot of potential.
