64 plant 4'x4' aquaponic kit

64 plant 4’x4′ aquaponic kit

The 3-Step Aquaponic system is a modular and easily expandable system.  A 64-plant 4’x4′ system can be converted to a 128-plant 4’x8′ system by adding 2 frame side-pieces and getting a longer liner.

The kit shown is the smallest at 4’x4′. It holds 64 plants with the two 32-plant supplied rafts. Each raft is 2’x4′ in size.  Optional 2’x’2′ 55-hole rafts are available and two of these can be used in place of one of the standard 2’x4′ rafts.

Using gravity, water is drained from the fish tank into a media bed. Here, beneficial bacteria break down the toxic ammonia in fish waste, converting it to Nitrite, and then to Nitrogen, a key nutrient for plant development. This naturally-filtered water is then pumped to the grow troughs.

The water is wicked up to the crops roots with the help of coir, a by-product of coconut shells and a sustainable replacement for peat moss, since no soil is used. Finally, the water flows from the growing beds back into the tank of fish.
