Aquaponic Gardening

A Community and Forum For Aquaponic Gardeners

The objective of this discussion is to collect anecdotal information of successful polycultures and why they work. This can include raising multiple species in the same or separate tanks. You can include information about the ecological niches that these species occupy. You can also share stories about what species combinations have been a dismal failure and why (this is no wall of shame)? I look forward to reading your responses, as this topic really interests me.

Bananas and fish seem to work fab, perhaps too well, cracked the grow bed.

 

ducks and bananas not so well, the ducks will pull down the bananas and devour them if you allow it.

 

I know probably not quite the sort of thing you were looking for.

 

I have some constant flood beds for water plants and the water chestnuts thrive in the hot weather and the water cress thrives in the cool weather so I like that combination.

No worries TCLynx, your expertise is well respected here. 

 

"I have some constant flood beds for water plants and the water chestnuts thrive in the hot weather and the water cress thrives in the cool weather so I like that combination." Could you explain this a little further? I am not sure how you combine the two.
