When you decide to build your aquaponics system, it is important that you take the time to size everything accordingly. There are some ratios to respect. The size of the grow bed according to the size and stocking density of your fish tank and also the filters (if you decide to use any) as well as the heart of your installation: the pump.
There are two ways to bring water to the grow bed: water pump or air-lift with an air pump. In this article I will introduce the two possibilities. Although, note that my preference goes to the water pump :)
