DO YOU HAVE TO USE FISH WITH THE FOUNTAIN?
No, you don't necessarily have to use fish in the AquaSprouts Fountain if you prefer not to. But fish are a vital ingredient in the aquaponic system as they provide the primary source of nutrients for the plants. Without the fish waste, you would need to add synthetic nutrients or organic fertilizers to the water to feed the plant. If you choose not to use fish, you can consider using a product like an organic liquid fertilizer or formulated hydroponic nutrients. Keep in mind that these products are not as efficient and sustainable as using fish waste and can be more costly in the long run.
CAN THIS BE USED OUTDOORS AS WELL AS INDOORS?
Yes, you can use the AquaSprouts Fountain outside, but there are some precautions you should take to ensure that the system remains healthy and sustainable. For example, exposure to direct sunlight, wind and rain can cause drastic temperature swings and water evaporation. It's essential to choose a suitable location, provide shade over the water, and cover the system during extreme weather conditions. Keep an eye out for pests or animals that may be attracted to the water or the fish, which can be harmful to your fish and plants. Additionally, be mindful of the water chemistry and temperature, and adjust as needed to maintain optimal conditions for your fish and plants.
DO YOU NEED A POWER SOURCE FOR THE FOUNTAIN?
Yes, you do need a power source for the AquaSprouts Fountain since it requires electricity to run the water pump. The pump circulates water from the reservoir to the grow bed, providing nutrient-rich water to the plants and helping to keep the water balanced.
I set this up in no time. I added an inverted glass vase for viewing the fish or for the fish to view me. I planted some seeds for herbs and am waiting for them to germinate.
Delivered very quickly! Packaged great with detailed instructions. I have not actually put it together yet because of where I live however the quality of the items is great. I think I am going to love it.
Too cold to put in patio yet! It was easy to assemble. Comes with stones also. It has direction ls for several different uses. Even if ya want to put live fish in it. Great directions and love the look. Very solid.
I am so excited about this piece! It was shipped in very secure packaging and received quickly. It was very easy to assemble together and understand how it works. I don’t have it 100 ready to go yet because I plan to use it as a hydroponic herb garden and need to get my seedlings growing. This is a quality piece that serves a great purpose for someone that lacks a lot of outdoor space for gardening.
