Planted Tank vs. Hydrponics... Similarities? Differences?
I happened across a hydroponics shop recently, and dove in with great interest. I spent some time wandering around and seeing a lot of equipment & chemicals any planted tank nut would be very familiar with.
I started to go over in my head what the differences are between planted tanks and hydroponics. Aside from the metabolic processes brought in by the fish and other animals, and the majority of plants being immersed, I couldn't think of any.
I am sure the nutrient balances are slightly different, but I don't know enough about hydroponics to make an educated guess.
Anyone wanna toss in some ideas?
