Hydroponic gardening is a system of growing plants in water, without soil. Aquaponics combines this with aquaculture (the farming of fish, crustaceans, etc) into a symbiotic system that recirculates and reuses water efficiently.

1. Aquaponics has been used for thousands of years. It is becoming more popular these days as companies, governments and families look for more sustainable and efficient methods of food production. Have you ever seen an aquaponic system?

2. I enjoy growing vegetables. I love the idea of aquaponics, but do not have a fish pond on my property. A friend of mine has two large ponds stocked with fish, and I am planning to discuss the idea of some type of floating system with him when I am at his home next week. Do you currently have a fish pond (large or small)?

4. I used to have two large fish aquariums, but sold them when I took a job that required a lot of traveling out of town. I enjoyed maintaining them and used live plants to maintain water quality and create a more natural ecosystem. If you have indoor fish, do you currently use live plants in the tank?
