    What Is a Water Garden?

    The Water Garden combines a 3-gallon fish tank with a vegetable and herb grow bed into one closed-loop system that fits easily on any kitchen counter, classroom or office. The waste from the fish provides nutrients for the plants, and the plants clean the water for the fish!

    What types of fish can I keep in my Water Garden?

    The Water Garden is not suitable for fish that are particularly sensitive to fluctuating ammonia and nitrite levels. This is a completely biologically-filtered system, and it does take time for the tank to cycle and become balanced. For this reason, we recommend betta fish, as they are especially hardy. Zebra danios and guppies also work well with the Water Garden at numbers of two to three per tank. If you decide to keep goldfish, please make sure you have a larger tank to move them to once they outgrow the 3 gallons!

    What Is Aquaponics?

    Aquaponic farming is an ancient sustainable method of farming developed by the Aztecs. It uses 90% less water than traditional farming methods and combines aquaculture (raising aquatic animals) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water). Scaled down to a table-top system, this is what happens inside the Water Garden: 1. Fish waste, which is toxic to the fish if allowed to accumulate, is pumped through an inner tube in the tank into a grow tray above containing plants. 2. The plant roots act as a biofilter where beneficial bacteria break down the harmful ammonia in the waste into nitrites and then finally nitrates which are absorbed as food by the plants. 3. The clean water is circulated back into the fish tanks so all you have to do is feed the fish!

    How many fish can I keep in my Water Garden?

    If you have a betta, you can only keep one per tank, as they will fight if kept with other fish. If you’re keeping other peaceful fish, the general rule of thumb is 1” of fish per gallon.
