What plants can I grow in my Water Garden?
We include organic wheatgrass and snow peas seeds with every Water Garden to start your organic farming. If you’re looking to grow other plants, leafy greens and herbs work best. We recommend parsley, coriander, mint, rocket, mixed greens, and other varieties of basil.
What types of fish can I keep in my Water Garden?
We recommend betta fish, as they are especially hardy. Other tropicals like Zebra danios and guppies also work well at numbers of two to three per tank — depending on how cold it gets in your area and home you might need a heater when choosing tropicals. Other cold water options: white clouds and small goldfish. The Water Garden is not suitable for fish that are particularly sensitive to fluctuating ammonia and nitrite levels. If you decide to keep goldfish, please make sure you have a larger tank to move them to once they outgrow the 3 gallons!
How many fish can I keep in my Water Garden?
If you have a betta, you can only keep one per tank, as they will fight if kept with other fish. If you’re keeping other peaceful fish, the general rule of thumb is 1” of fish per gallon.

The Science Inside
Water Garden is closed-loop Aquaponics system. This farming method uses the waste of the fish to grow plants and clean its water:
Fish waste produces Ammonia (can be toxic if accumulates)
Beneficial Bacteria in Water Garden converts ammonia into nitrates
Plants use Nitrates as food to grow, and clean the water from Ammonia
