Home Aquaponics & Small Aquaponics Systems
We have filters perfect for aquaponics projects of any size.
Aquaponics merges aquaculture, the raising of aquatic animals, with hydroponics, growing plants in water. Aquaponics can be located in urban areas, or your backyard and provide all of the benefits of growing your own food.
Combined with our innovative filters and filtration systems, your small scale or home aquaponics environment will be able to grow healthy, nutrient-rich crops and fish in a small footprint, using minimal water.
AST filters provide predictable and safe water quality for your fish crop, while capturing and transforming the soluble and solid fish waste into biologically available nutrients for your plants.
Our bead filter technology, often used in high density aquaculture, has been adapted specifically for smaller scale aquaponics environments and home use. These filters backwash themselves, simplifying maintenance. Imagine never manually cleaning your filters again! Plus the automated backwash minimizes water loss so your whole system can process as efficiently and sustainably as possible.
Our team of aquaponics filtration experts is ready to help you plan and build your ideal system today. Call today 1.800.939.3659.
Utilizing our top of the line Endurances, this system will autobackwash regularly, reducing your labor and maintenance time. All the advantages of one of our best ﬁlters with expertly designed airlift circulation. No water pump is necessary for the the aquaculture loop. Airlift circulation provides aeration, degassing, and energy savings.
The MDC System includes a culture tank plus the Endurance ﬁlter and a mineralization tank. This mineralization tank can be used to provide nutrients to feed plants. Build your own DWC tanks or grow vertically with towers. This system is ﬂexible, providing the life support for your ﬁsh while you garden.
Looking for the best ﬁltration for your ﬁsh? AST has over twenty ﬁve years of experience in aquaculture. Designed by AST ﬁltration experts, this system is great for raising your own ﬁsh or keeping broodstock. This kit system makes setup simple and easy.
This system supplies the life support and main aquaculture components of an aquaponics system. For aquaponics, pair with a hydroponics system such as a DWC, media bed, or towers. Pair with your choice of hydroponics (media, NFT, or DWC).

AST recommends a decoupled system design. Decoupling the system means that the fish and the plants are not in a continual loop. Instead, nutrients are captured and concentrated for use in fertilizing your plants. Decoupled aquaponics systems take advantage of these benefits:
- Highest efficiency configuration
- Lowest water use
- Less crop and animal risk
- Compact design in a small footprint
- Less plumbing
- Predictable, consistent operation
What does that all mean? Less worry, less plumbing, faster setup, and more time farming!
