Default Planted Tank Aquaponics

Maybe this is a long shot, but has anyone on here experimented with aquaponics?

I enjoy cooking as much as I enjoy my planted tank and was thinking the other night that its gotta be possible to grow some herbs and lettuces using aquarium water as the main nutrient source. How awesome to have the herbs grown so close to home!

In my preliminary research I came across:

Windowfarms

And this article linked to their sight. The floating plants kinda remind me of what Hydrophote is doing. Devin any input here, you grown any edibles with your system.

Also a brief video of a vertical aquaponic set-up (as opposed to the floating style)

Any thoughts on how you'd set-up something like this would be appreciated.

Cheers,
Nic
