How easy is solar powered Aquaponics

Why: You can have your own eco system and grow your own vegetables in the coolest way possible.


  • Set up a big tank at the bottom that the fish live in

  • Set up a bucket of rocks that the plants will live in

  • Install a pump to move the water from the fish tank to the plant bucket

  • Install a bell siphon in your plant bucket to dump water back into the fish tank

  • Plant some plants, and throw some fish in the fish tank

  • Making it solar powered

    • Install a small solar panel in the sun

    • Install a solar powered battery out of the rain

    • Install a charge controller out of the rain

    • Run a line to the pump

    • Hook everything up (it’s easy, there are pictures on the machine)

  • Don’t forget to feed the fish

  • Feel free to use these files to explain how this system works

What: A fully functional aquaponics system, powered by the sun. All you have to do is feed the fish and it will make vegetables for you.
