Inside the AquaFarm
The AquaFarm works as an aquaponic system. Aquaponics is an an ancient, sustainable method of farming that combines aquaculture (raising aquatic creatures) and hydroponics (growing plants without soil). It 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 in the plant pots
- 3) Nitrates 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
We recommend keeping one large male betta fish in your AquaFarm. Feel free to add decorations to the AquaFarm as bettas enjoy places to hide and swim around. Please consult your local pet store on the preferences of your fish to make sure their home is a happy one!
