A basic aquaponics system that may be placed indoors or outdoors is not difficult to design. You can purchase a ready-made kit or buy the components from the local hardware store or hobby shop and build it yourself.
Here is a list of what you'll need to build a basic aquaponics system
First you need a fish tank, the size of which will be determined by were you want to put it and what is your goal for the system
The second thing you need are plants. When choosing what to grow with your aquaponics system, consider your overall space, goals and type of water flow.
The third part of an aquaponics system is a water pump and filtration unit, these 2 things are crucial as they will help you maintain the system in balance
You'll find various kinds of water flow and filtration systems available, the kind you choose will be determined by the range of your grow project, the area you have devoted for the aquaponics system and in addition how long that you can schedule for the servicing of it.
A standard aquaponic system is the same as a regular aquarium, but since it is not a continuous flow system you are constrained to growing plants that will only blossom in a at a standstill water environment, like lettuce for example. Plants that demand more oxygen will not prosper in a system such as this and that is why you require a system that has a constant flow of water.
There are many things that you must consider before you begin the project of building an aquaponics system. Here are some of them:
1. Find out if any special aquaculture permits are required were you live.
2. Only use materials that are food grade.
3. Make the necessary arrangements if you are planning a trip out of town.
4. Investigate where your fish comes from, because you wouldn't like sick fish.
5. Be certain that you have adequate room to allow for your systems growth.
The concept of building an aquaponic system is very tempting and do to all of its benefits the concept makes a lot of sense. The smart thing, though, is to do a lot of research before you start, and first begin on a small scale and then grow. My advice is to invest in a guide that will give you step by step and detailed instructions for building your fist aquaponics system.
