Arduino Aquaponics!

Arduino Aquaponics!

Aquaponics is a unique system of raising fish and growing plants together. At a basic level, the fish fertilise the plants, allowing plants to grow in a water saving, chemical free environment.  However, developing effective aquaponic systems can be very difficult. Rik Kretzinger has added an Arduino into his aquaponic garden to make things run as smoothly as possible. Adding an Arduino allows the garden to be fully automated, with various pumps controlled by the data inputted by water level, humidity, temperature and moisture sensors. The project even allows you to control and log data from your garden over the internet! The Arduino aquaponic garden allows you to combine the joy of “making”, with the satisfaction of growing your own veggies! Although the project requires a number of parts to get started, it could be a worthwhile investment in the long run with likely savings from growing your own produce. To get started building your own aquaponics garden check out the following link.

The project is extremely well documented and provides many useful tips to ensure that your garden is as productive as possible.
