||We have decided to test which way of planting is the best between hydroponics, aquaponics, or the conventional way of planting. We came up with the question because we were curious to see which way of planting would be best to grow.
||We predict that the aquaponics will work best. The fish will benefit the growth of the plant as the plants will benefit the fish because the fish's waste will be used as a good fertilizer and the plant will purify the fish's environment. Which will cause everything to grow.
||Our plan is to figure out which way of planning is the best.We will test a hydroponics, aquaponics, and the conventional way of planting. For the hydroponic we have used a cut gallon, rockwool, and styrofoam. For the aquaponics we used the same size gallon, a aquarium filter, 4 freshwater fish, rockwool, and styrofoam. We will measure the growth of the plant and the water temperature. We will keep the watering and feeding of the fish constant. We will use our science notebooks to record our data.
||We can claim that the fish will be a good use to the plants as the plants will benefit the fish. The possible explanation is that the waste from the fish will be used as a fertilizer and the plant will purify the living environment for the fish.
