Hello this is Thurman, I am here to tell you about home aquariums. Here is a picture of my fish tank, followed by a grid that will tell you what kinds of animals and plants i have in my fish tank. When you clean out your fish tank into a bucket, the water is filled with fish poop and it is good for your houseplants. My fish tank is like a miniature farm. There are many systems that need to be observed and balanced such as fish, snails, shrimp, plants, bacteria, temperature and ph. This is like permaculture; looking at the big picture.

Hello this is Thurman I'm here to tell you about aquaponics (although I have never done this I have done a considerable amount of research on it). Aquaponics is mostly about feeding your plants with fish waste turning ammonia into nitrates and then into nitrogen which then is given to your plants through tubes.
