Aquaponics is a means of growing Fish and Plants in a self controlled ecosystem.

There are two forms of good bacteria in these systems that are naturally formed.

One of the bacteria live in the main fish tank to help process the waste from the fish (Ammonia) into Nitrites.

The other resides in the grow beds (where the plants are grown), that convert the Nitrites into Nitrates.

These Nitrates are what give the plants all the nutrients they need to thrive.

The plants absorb the Nitrates and then allows clean fresh water to be passed back to the fish tank.
