Aquaponic Gardening

A Community and Forum For Aquaponic Gardeners

hey I am new to aquaponics and was wondering if anyone has ever used water from a stock tank or pond for the water I am looking at moving to a larger place this summer and it has a stock tank that is full of fish just thinking why not use the whole tank for my water system just pump my water from tank to grow beds and add a return line back to tank any thoughts if this would work or not would be helpful

thanks david

That sounds like an aquaponics system....

What exactly are you asking? If you can use a stock tank or a pond as a fish tank?

That is exactly what AP (aquaponics) is all about. Any situation that has any concentration of excrement (fish) can be processed to make nutrients for (organic) hydroponic growing. I specialize in pond/ greenwater culture so yes ponds are great! Stock tanks are good too but not as natural, limited in size/ potential and a bit more finicky/ high tech/ high maintenance for my taste.
