Guide to make Easy DIY Aquaponics 

Aquaponics - What you need to know Introduction When it comes to gardening and growing your own food, few technologies have a stronger potential impact on self sustainability and healthy living than aquaponics. In a world stricken with poverty, this technology, if implemented correctly, could help shift the masses from dependency to self-reliance which could affect us all on a global scale by ending world hunger. The reason is because through this method of food production there is no easier way to become completely self-sufficient while eating healthy, organically grown fruits and vegetables. It may seem complicated or overwhelming but it’s not as difficult as it sounds. Once your system is up and running, all it takes is a little "aquarium" maintenance to keep it going for the season or for years and years if you like. Aquaponics is not dependent on the weather or climate (within a temperature controlled greenhouse), which means you can d…

Aquaponics Plans for FreeHow many times did you not want to grow your own vegetables, without chemicals or preservatives, just organic food that you, your children and your entire family can eat safely? How many times did you not think for purchasing a land that will offer you the organic crops you long for? How many times did you not wish to go out and pick your veggies without thinking of their rising price? If for all of these questions the answer is “many” then read on and find out how all you wishes may come true. So, let’s start with the beginning. The first invention which made gardening far easier was hydroponics, which involved growing your veggies in special pots with water.

Indoor Aquaponic Gardening

Indoor Aquaponic GardeningVegetables are necessary for a balanced diet. They offer you all the vitamins and minerals your body needs in order to develop properly. Unfortunately, vegetables have become quite expensive lately and fewer producers choose to grow organic vegetables.

Yet, why are the fish so important in the aquaponics? Well, the first step in setting up your aquaponic system is that of purchasing a fish tank and, of course, the fish. This is main…

Gardening and growing vegetables is a passion many people share. They like to see how a simple seed grows and passes through different stages until it reaches maturity and makes fruits. Also, they love to see how their efforts pay off and they finally get to taste the veggies they have so long waited for. Yet, what can you do when you love to grow plants but your soil is unfertile? Well, there are two options: you either give it a try anyway and try to solve the problem using fertilizers, in which case you may end up with poor and tasteless crops or you give up cultivating plants in the ground and go for the aquaponic gardening kit.
Aquaponics means growing vegetables using water from a fish tank. This solves the unfertile ground problem, as you no longer place your seeds in the ground and it also solves the issue with the taste of your crops. This is a very good alternative to the hydroponic system, as you will not use chemical substances on your plants in aqua…

With the economy going out of control, finding cheap yet qualitative products has become a challenge even for the savviest shoppers. It seems like all prices have gone wild and you have to pay a fortune just to have a normal, balanced diet. Usually, the products which come cheaper are also of lower quality, so you need to sacrifice more for qualitative products. Yet, you can now save lots of money and eat organic vegetables as well as fresh fish from your own farm, your aquaponic farm.

Aquaponic farming is basically an improved version of hydroponics. In fact it is a combination between hydroponics and aquaculture. What you do is grow fish in a specially designed tank and use the water from the tank to grow vegetables too. This way you develop a type of farming based on interdependence: the fish have clean and fresh water due to the plant roots, while the plants get their food from the fish tank, without yet harming the fish. It is as easy as it seems! You will j…

Who Else Wants a Beautiful, Healthy Betta Fish... Swimming Happily in a Stunning Tank... Without Having to Spend a Bundle or Constantly Worry About Your Betta's Health?

From: Marcus Song
Written: Saturday, 9:07 A.M. Dear Fellow Betta Lover, Alone in the bathroom, feeling helpless as my kids cried. I'd just had to flush Ruddy, our beloved betta fish, down the toilet. On a cold, bleak winter day in 1998, that was the final sad result of the first betta fish I'd bought. It shouldn't have ended up that way. I remember the first time I went into a pet store and saw that majestic looking betta, bright red with flowing fins, crammed into a tiny little plastic cup. There wasn't enough room for him to swim. Heck, he couldn't even move. Nor could he even spread …
