The proper term for that is aquaponics, which is the combination of fish and hydroponics, gold fish are the best because they can be left year round, but depending on the temperature in your area you could use perch or baramundi.

here is a link to my setup. http://ozfishforsale.com.au/forum/index.php/topic,2148.0.html

I would have to fry all of mine to get a decent feed.  Only about 7cm.

I wonder what tastes better. Saulosi, maingano, mpanga or aulonocara?  ;D :ROFL:

if they are my maingano's, they would be tough as boot leather and just as bitter

most commonly used fish are silver perch & occassionally trout in winter, barra in summer. Another alternative is to use marron or yabbies, good eating, fast growing & high waste load for feeding your plants. Try Fremantle ocean farms on the south mole for aquaculture fish. Do not buy them from an aquariums store as they may have been treated with medications that are unsuitable for human consumption (many contain carcinogenic products such as formalin).
