1. Back To The Roots Water Garden
This kit has a fish tank that cleanses by itself with its filter system attached in the mini tank. Further cleansing is achieved by a D-Klor, which removes chlorine from the water as chlorine causes slime formation. Nutrition supplies are also provided in this hydroponics, such as Zym Bac and fish food for the fish.
In Back To The Roots Water Garden kit, you will find some nutritious micro-greens seeds that you can grow on the top with the help of grow-stones. The grow-stones work as a medium for your micro-green plants to grow and make accessibility of the nutrients from the water for the plants.
2. Sweetsea Wall-Mounted Garden
This is one of the most highly aesthetic aquaponics kits you can find on the market. The Sweetsea Wall-Mounted Garden is made of transparent acrylic shaped like a bubble with miniature plants inside it. You get to have an aquarium that has both flora and Fiona.

With an outlet on the top, the plant grown inside the tank can protrude outwards, adding to the appeal. The easy-to-maintain wall decoration is light in weight and therefore, could be hung anywhere.
3. Penn Plax Aquaponic Fish Tank
This compact aquaponics rig has two different materials: a ceramic plastic holder that is used for the plant, and a glass tank for supporting the aquatic environment for the fish. The roots of the plant protrude below the ceramic holder adding to the nitrates essential for the fish’s nutrition.
This symbiotic relationship is well-explained through the kit’s structure and, therefore, can be used as an educational tool. It is easy to clean and can be used without a fish as a plant carrier alone. Most herbaceous plants go well in this setting.
