FAQ’S

Answering questions from ‘What is aquaponics?’ and ‘How do I cycle an aquaponics system’ to ‘How to build a DIY aquaponics system?’

Which fish can I grow?

What vegetables can I grow?

What vegetables can I grow?

Nearly anything you can grow in the soil, you can grow aquaponically. The tailored environment offers the ability to make adaptions to your enclosed space. This includes the possibilities of altering  pH ranges to grow specific plants or fish and means you can grow food not just out of season, but all year round!
How much space do I need?

How much space do I need?

Aquaponics is versatile; It can be situated either indoors or outside. Your system can be as small as a self-cleaning fish tank or the size of a whole farm! It’s up to you.
How much does it cost to run a system?

How much does it cost to run a system?

Power consumption and fish food are the main inputs of aquaponics. A 100 litre self-cleaning fish tank has a similar running cost to a regular fish tank; around £5/month. An aquaponics system large enough to feed a family of four  will be around £12 to £20/month. If you incorporated renewable energies and make your own fish food, you could potentially eliminate these costs.
Is aquaponics a family activity?

Is aquaponics a family activity?

Absolutely. It’s an all round fun, learning experience that encourages healthy diets and an understanding of biology, chemistry, physics and maths as well as nature, sustainability, and animal care!
What is a Community Interest Company?

What is a Community Interest Company?

A C.I.C is a business which has social and environmental objectives. Aquaponic Life has chosen to reinvest their profits and grow food for the community.  By creating ‘living’ food banks, people can come and learn how food grows, as well as it eat whilst it’s fresh and full of nutrients.
Social enterprises like ours, strive to create strong, sustainable and socially inclusive economies.
