Mark commented on Hydroponic Gardens using Nike Grind

Hello Shannon, here is another idea... I'm currently in the process of making a new filter for my son's aquarium. I plan to build a horizontal canister filter that will be open on top, allowing for plants to be inserted into the top. The plants are expected to eat all the nitrates from the tank, eliminating the need to clean it out, while providing air filtration for the kids.

If you design the planters as vertical hydroponic towers, you can maximize your footprint and produce a significantly higher yield.

interesting idea. This could also have application in construction and landscaping situations.
