Hydroponic SFG?

jplee3October 10, 2012

Hey guys,

New to SFG and am planning on building one real soon, hopefully. Was curious if any of you have experimented with building an SFG over a pond w/ fish (tilapia, koi, etc) and creating co-dependency for hydroponics.

I searched around and came across a few people who have done this - it seems like an interesting way to do it. But I'm guessing you'd either have to change the ratio in mel's mix or use something entirely different to grow the plants in.

Any experience with this?

If I understand you correctly, you're talking about aquaponics. Quite a few people are doing it - check YouTube for examples.
