This article will discuss the benefits of using worms in aquaponics systems and how to add them to your system

Lettuce is always in high demand, as it is an ingredient in most salads and comes in several varieties. This article discusses how to grow lettuce in your aquaponics garden, its specific growing instructions, and the best way of growing these delicious leaves. 

 

Aquaponics combines aquaculture (the growing of fish and other aquatic animals) and hydroponics (the growing of plants without soil) in one recirculating environment.

In return, the plant roots clean and filter the water for the fish to live.
