There is a difference between them. Listen to Steven Adamus who build a Aquaponics at home.
He preferes to have a Aquaponics because he is also growing fish to eat. Each system has it’s own advantage.
The base is more or less the same.
Now that you know the difference you might want to build a Aquaponics system! Steven is super happy with his system. You can listen to him how he build it and how he uses it, how he experiment it and how much time he works on it every day.
