Aquaponic Vegetable Garden

I did a lot of research online about different ways to do a garden w/out having to dig, till, hoe, keep the weeding it every few days, ect… There are lots of options out there, but I settled on this setup because everything is neat clean and most importantly CHEAP. The way it works is that the fish poop feeds the plants just like cow manure does. I just hope our veggies don’t smell or taste fishy.. J/K With this setup you don’t need an air pump or filters.. The falling water from the pump outlet, siphon, and water falling from the gutter after being filtered thru the plants keeps the water really oxygen rich. No aquarium filter needed because that’s what all the rocks and plants roots will be doing. All that’s left to do now is add fish, and put some screen over the fish tank to keep the debris and birds out of it.
