Aquaponics is a fairly unheard of agricultural method that essentially combines the ease and control of hydroponics with the sustainability of aquaculture. The main input into the aquaponic system is cheap and readily available fish food. The resulting effluent provides plants with a constant stream of organic fertilizer that enables food to grow at an accelerated rate. The secret lies in a branch of ubiquitous bacteria known as the nitrifiers. These bacteria take in the ammonia from the fish effluent and convert it into nitrate, ready to be absorbed by plant roots. Simple monitoring of Calcium, Iron, and Potassium provides the basis for creating a resource efficient and affordable method of producing fresh fish, vegetables and fruit.
We highly recommend on doing some reading about aquaponics before diving in. Slyvia Bernstein's "Aquaponic Gardening" is a great introduction to the aquaponic growing method. Kodaponics offers affordable consulting for our systems or other small aquaponic setups!

For all other quick questions or concerns about your system don't hesitate to contact us, we'll be happy to help!
Our system plant capacity is defined for leafy greens, herbs, and small vegetable and fruit plants such as strawberries or peppers. Large tomato or cucumber plants, for example, are much harder to contain in small systems (less than 250 gallons). It is technically possible, but we don't recommend it unless you're looking for a gardening challenge.
We highly recommend freshwater test kits such as those sold by API to check pH, Ammonia, Nitrite, and Nitrate levels in your system. This greatly increases your chances of success and ability to troubleshoot.
Due to the size and nature of our aquaponic systems the shipping will depend on the specific order and location of the customer. Freight shipping rates will be given upon order request.
For made to order items, sales are final once work has started (usually within 24 hours of payment).

    I put this planter in front of an upstairs window that gets partial sunlight. Ferns and Coleus do real well and the fish I first got are still alive, so far so good. I plan on moving it outside to grow strawberries next summer. Kodaponics helped me choose the plants and fish, and then I just followed the start up manual and I'm really liking the results.
