Top 9 Best Aquaponics Fish
Aquaponics is an amazing way to garden. And the workhorses of an aquaponics system are the aquaponics fish.
As discussed in other pages, Aquaponics is a natural process whereby fish are raised in an aquarium, and their waste is pumped vertically into grow beds. Waste is then naturally converted into nutrients for the plant’s roots to absorb within a grow medium. Plants, in turn, clean the water in this recirculating and symbiotic system.
Before you can grow your plants, you must first choose the correct aquaponics fish. Not all aquaponics fish are equal, or have the same requirements for survival. Therefore, let’s review some key considerations before choosing the best aquaponics fish for your needs.

Here are 9 of the best aquaponics fish. We have included an ideal temperature range for each species. Please note the while most fish are able to tolerate varying degrees of temperature outside of the ideal range, we recommend you keep your aquaponics fish within these parameters as much as possible. This will ensure that the fish are able to grow effectively (and stay alive).
