GroPonix Mini Aquaponic Aquarium kit

Hello everyone. I realize it has been a while since my last update about the GroPonix and Goldfish Garden systems. I have had a long winding summer/fall of dead ends and small failures, but everything is (finally) starting to come together to get these a number of these kits sent out before Christmas.

Goldfish Garden Name Changes

The Goldfish Garden name will be changed from here on out to the GroPonix Mini to better represent this great product. This will be the last mention of the Goldfish Garden name, and we are currently transitioning this website over to the domain. All of you who are following this product on Facebook and Twitter will receive an invitation to like/follow the new GroPonix name in the next couple of days.

    Will wheatgrass grow in this?

    What’s the plant in the picture?

    • Ryan Coghlan says:

      This system has mint growing in it. Most plants will grow in the GroPonix Mini including wheatgrass, marigolds, pansies, mint, basil, and other small plants. It is recommended that larger plants like tomatoes not be grown in this system because they simply get too large over time. You could use the GroPonix Mini as a seed starter in the spring as the grow plugs are removable and can be planted directly into soil.

    Just wanted to say that this is the coolest thing I’ve seen in a long time- sorry the Kickstarter didn’t get funding in 2012 but don’t stop! I want one of these and think more people are slowly becoming interested in aquaponics! :)
