can add beauty and life to your space, but this isn’t just all about fish and aquatic life, it’s also about something even more important; choosing the right types of equipment for the tank itself.

Ok lets put the mini tanks aside for a minute. The ECO-Cycle Aquaponics Kit is designed to fit aquariums with a footprint of 24" by 12". Typically this will be a 20 gallon aquarium, but there are specially made tanks with the same footprint.

As I'm sure you have noticed this is a lot bigger than the other self cleaning fish tanks. For more aquarists this is the dream tank. A decent size combined with an easy to use automatic cleaning system.

The plants are fed in the same way the back to the roots tank worked. A pump send water to the plants roots, allowing the plants to pull harmful nitrates from the water and supply oxygen in turn. This keeps the tank much cleaner for long periods of time. Personally I still performed water changed once a month even though my water tests came back 0 ammonia 0 nitrites 10-20 nitrates. If you're new to the hobby that may sound like a lot of nitrates. Simply put once you have fish in the tank it becomes impossible to have 0 nitrates. To do so you would need to put the fish in 100% new water and test the water before any food or waste is added to the tank. Some may even be stored on the decorations and I know first hand many filters can trap in nitrates too. So for this tank to keep the nitrates to so low after an entire month with several fish inside is beyond impressive. The Avo self cleaning fish tank requires no water changes and you never need to clean the filter, providing a fully automatic cleaning environment to help keeping fish a pleasure rather than a pain.
