Hi all, I'm wondering how many here have a hydroponic setup for their garden, and if anyone else is set up for aquaponics. We're hoping to set up an aquaponics tank this spring to raise tilapia and to fertilize the garden. I think @WildWyandott110 mentioned it too? Anyone else tried raising their own fish? Or used fish water as fertilizer?

I have a hydroponic setup. I'm also thinking about converting it to an aquaponics system. My issue is sourcing the fish.

I do. There are only a couple of build-it-yourself aquaponics system guides that I would recommend, and Aquaponics 4 You by John Fay, a Certified Organic Farmer and Aquaponics Expert, is one of them.

It’s a written manual and video that shows you the step-by-step process of building a simple and fully functional aquaponics system for under $400 (a heck of a lot cheaper than buying a pre-made system from the shops).
