Wellington Aquaponics Project

We are working on an aquaponics system which includes a vertical garden and fish tank. A pump will move water from the plants, which absorb nutrients and clean the water. Fish eat and produce ammonia. Bacteria then convert ammonia to nitrate this in turn feeds the plants. For more info go to www.wix.com/jmandziuk/wellington-aquaponics-project
