Aquarium Herb Garden

March 3, 2013

The last of my grand-son's fish have died, RIP. Now I have a grand 50 gallon fish tank in the basement. I have done some basic research on using the tank to grow herbs but I need some more advice: Here's my preliminary plan, clean the tank thoroughly, add about 2 inches of gravel to bottom, add five inches of soil. Use the existing pump, placed in a 5 gallon container, hooked up to a timer to deliver a certain amount of water daily. Use the existing light, maybe changing the fluorescent bulb for a grow light, also hooked up to a timer. I would like to grow Basil, Mint, Oregano and Thyme. As simple as my plan sounds I know that IâÂÂm missing a lot of information; Please comment.
