Aquarium Aquaponics Biogarden 18″ x 12″ is a soilless grow bed that fits on top of almost any protected rim aquarium.
The 18″ long Aquarium Aquaponic kit is a soilless media filled garden bed that recycles water from fish tank to fertilize plants above and purify water for the fish.
Growers may use the Biogarden for aquaponics hydroponics or bioponics. With bioponics as practiced by Bioponica the grow bed converts green grasses and any biomass into organic fertilizer to grow plants with or without fish.
This kit includes a bag of dehydrated biomass for use with the aquarium aquaponics system to nourish the plants and feed filter feeding fish such as goldfish, mollies and tilapia fry.
Included Trickle Valve replaces need for bell siphon or bulkhead fitting. Also includes media made of recycled glass for growing plants and supporting plant benefical organisms. No Tank Included – customer supplies aquarium. Suitable for any 10-12″ width tank with bowing support. Use with most 10 gallon and larger tanks.

Bioponica and Earth Solutions no longer produce the Farm in a Box Aquarium Aquaponics system.
While we loved that system and it helped us launch Bioponica, wood and water don’t mix. The Biogarden is more durable and easier to operate.
