Hey there BBradBury,
Wow check that out, that looks amazing! We are going to try to get a picture of our tank up here today at some point so you can check it out, the tank was on a fish-less cycle for a month and a half before we added the Betta, we started the plant seeds under a T9 grow light until we got some root systems established, put the plants in about 2 weeks ago and they seem to be doing just great! The whole Aquaponics system is amazing, the fish gets his water cleaned and purified while the plant gains nutrients and grows from the fish excrement!! I've heard that the herbs and plants grown out of aquaponics taste great too because of the natural fertilization!
