- A Standard 20-gallon (20H) fish tank. You can find these at your local pet store for $20-40. See below for more information on aquarium options.
- 2-3 Fish
- Fish food
- 1-2 packets of seeds to start growing.
- Electric timer (optional) Allows you to set a consistent amount of daylight for the grow light and tank light- this is about $10 at most hardware stores. The timer can be set somewhere between 16/12 -12/12 on/off cycle. In hydroponic growing a 16 hour day is standard. Do not set your pump on a timer – the pump should run continuously, 24/7.
- Aquarium gravel and any decor for the tank (optional).
