Andrew Endres is the author and creator of Easy! DIY Aquaponics. Andrew grew up tending gardens as a youngster his whole life, and wanted a better way to produce the vegetables he loved. He is a family man now as presented by his video with his daughter.
His idea stems from plants loving algae, minerals, and nitrates created by the fish. Consequently, the fish thrive on the oxygenated water provided by the plants. It is a win-win situation for both parties.
Many years ago, Gary was introduced by a friend of his to the concept of “aquaponics”. At first he thought the idea seemed a little weird. He heard that you care for some fish in a tank and then you let vegetables and other fresh produce grow using the nutrients presented in the fish waste.
