Aquaponics System Kit – Questions Answered
An Aquaponics System Kit is the assembling of food growing components to complete a working closed ecosystem from growing plants. The main items in a Kit are the fish tank, grow bed, and a bell siphon draining system among other items. The size of your Aquaponics System Kit is dependent upon the space you have for it and the overall goals having one will achieve for you.
An Aquaponics System Kit should be one that utilizes the nitrogen cycle instigated through the exhalation of ammonia from the fish gills. This natural cycle that happens in the great ecosystems of lakes, rivers and streams can be encapsulated into a closed circuit ecosystem in your spare room or in your backyard. If fish or Aquaculture is not involved it cannot be Aquaponic. The Aquaponics Ecosystem production starts with the fish tank and the grow bed(s) in which the ammonia heavy water is pumped to start the Nitrite to Nitrate process. In between those two are the water pumps, the pipes or hoses (with the additional biofilters or clarifiers) and the spigot that delivers the water into the grow bed. Additionally, beyond the bell siphon system, you will need the ancillary equipment such as the pH level and water temp monitors along with the grow lights if your system is set indoors. An Aquaponics System Kit should have all you would need to start cycling the water through the system and attach the nitrogen particles on the grow medium of your choice.
