Home Aquaponics

 

“Like the Home Garden, the Family Plus is a raft aquaponic system. It has four fish tanks. But, it is twice as big as the Home Garden! It can annually produce 460 lbs. of fish and 2,700 – 4,860 heads of lettuce (or other vegetables).” ~https://aquaponics.com/aquaponic-systems/home-and-school-systems/

 

Location is a must when you are planning home aquaponics. Don’t forget to measure your space too.

 

I want to share to you this video on how to set up your own home aquaponics and the things that you have to consider.
