Aquaponics // update 1

Constructed an aquaponics setup. Made from simple plastic construction materials and cheap grow lights (LED) from china. Water gets pumped up from the fish-inhabited-aquarium (or a bathtub in this case) to the top row. Every row has a small dam at the end to keep the water from escaping too fast. At the moment there are 2 rows of plants (kale) but this design supports an additional row.


  • There is a noticeable lack of green color in the plants caused by missing nutrition in the water.
  • The current pump to strong. Might invest in a less powerful model.
