Aquaponics does not have to be difficult or expensive, and we are happy to encourage anyone thinking about setting up an aquaponics system to try their hand at building it themselves. A DIY system can help to teach about all the different components and how they all work together to form a designed ecosystem. We are putting together a series of articles designed to give you the information that you will need to design and build a safe home or backyard aquaponics system.
