Inside the AquaFarm
AquaFarm works as an aquaponic system. Aquaponics is an an ancient, sustainable method of farming that combines traditional aquaculture (raising aquatic creatures) with hydroponics (growing plants without soil). Aquaponics uses 90% less water than traditional farming.
- 1) Fish produce ammonia-rich waste
- 2) Beneficial bacteria in your AquaFarm convert the ammonia into nitrates. These naturally occurring bacteria grow best on the Growstones in the plant pots
- 3) While nitrates are toxic to fish; fortunately, they are great food for plants. As the plants continuously uptake nitrates as the nutrients they need to grow, they are also cleaning the water for your fish

Questions about the AquaFarm
- From Melissa at 3/14/14 2:36 PM
- From Dominique at 3/18/14 7:55 PM
nice idea and cool design, but what I ask myself is: how does the fish feel - so alone, without a stone or little cave to hide, a plant to play around and a friend or partner? Wouldn´t it be much more nice to give him a companion? Does your system succeed one more inhabitant and a waterplant?
- We recommend keeping one large male betta fish in your AquaFarm. If you’d like to keep more than one fish in your AquaFarm, we recommend following the 1-inch of fish per gallon rule of thumb. 2-3 fancy guppies or zebra danios are other recommendations of ours. Please consult your local pet shop about stocking a 3 gallon tank.
