Here is a collection of aquaponics supplies, equipments and materials I have identified online through my journey in Aquaponics. These are reliable supplies I have found on Amazon.com, I mean these guys sell almost everything online and is known for their excellent service and in their punctual deliveries.
These supplies will help you in starting up and operating your aquaponics system on the right path. So, let’s take a tour…
Let’s start off with the;
These tanks have a perfect depth of 12″. They are also made of hardy and tough material that is built to withstand extreme weather conditions. Please click on the images for more information.
If you are to put in a little bit more investment, Aquabundance tank (in brown) is a built for aquaponics purpose growbed. Well, they may cost more but are meant to take the beating that nature has to offer and are extremely hardy and durable. The Rubbermaid and Behlen Country variant are good enough but if you prefer a better option, AquaBundance is your choice.
And if you are in the look out for a complete, done for you aquaponics setup, then the Aquabundance, Terra Cotta System is highly recommended.

Water Heaters For Aquaponics
Water heaters are critical for fish tanks that are exposed to fluctuating climatic and temperature conditions. This is because these heaters help to maintain a stable temperature in the fish tank allowing your aquaponics fish to strive in their optimum temperature conditions.

Aquaponics Fish Feeds
I’ve found some good fish feeds from AquaNourish that are suitable for your fish from the fingerlings stage (stage 1) right up to stage 4 (6 inches and more) of your fish. The AquaNourish variant (the first image) can be crushed easily to smaller pieces to feed your fries or fingerlings.
The second is really suitable for juvenile stage of your fish. The third is for intermediate size (3 to 4″ long). The final variant is more suitable for adult fish (more than 6″ long).
Fresh Water Test Kits
When it comes to water testing, the “API Freshwater Master Test Kit” is always my first choice due to its accuracy and affordability. Nevertheless, the test strips (API 5 in 1 Test Strips) is a good enough alternative though and they are gentle on the wallet too. Plus, they are very convenient to use. It may lack clarity between readings at times, but so does the Master Kit for that matter.
Fishless Cycling Kits
If you have been following my blogs you would know that I’m a strong advocate to cycling aquaponics systems with fish and plants together. But if you prefer to practice fishless cycling here are some products you can use to help you in the process.
The AquaCycle variant comes with small, medium and large aquaponics system setup. Depending on your requirements, all the three variants accommodate to different system sizes hence, the price difference.
Pick one that is most suitable for you 🙂
Chelated Iron, Ammonia, Nitrifying Bacteria & De-chlorinator
Here are some other aquaponics supplies you can use to help in your system. Chelated Iron is for you to use when you find your aquaponics plants are yellowing. A sign of your system lacking iron. You can read more about it here.
As for Aquatics Ammonium, it’s used to simulate the presence of fish poop in the fish tank. Zym-Bac Nitrifying solution is used to promote the growth of nitrifying bacteria in the system to speed up the cycling process. And the De-chlorinator is used to remove chlorine from your auqaponics system’s water source.
