    One option is to empty and clean the trays regularly, and refill them with clean water. Otherwise, you'll need to circulate the water with a pump and find something to filter it - either mechanically like an aquarium filter, or biologically with fast-growing plants that tolerate high nutrient levels.

    and even then, it'd be tough to remove all traces of the nutrients in the water which would build up in the media... not sure there's any real way to do it while the fish are in the water that is currently in contact with the media... unless well, you found a way to put diapers on the fish. haha.

    I e-mailed the website and asked if the fish waste would harm the plants and here is what he wrote back and said.

    Nice to hear from you.
    I've had them in many trays for years, with no troubles. They work great, and have not harmed my plants.

    swapping out the water regularly should take care of PH issues nd excess waste......allowing algae to grow on the sides of the tray will take up alot of the waste aswell.....

    Too many chances for failure, don't do it.

    if i based what i do on chances of failure i wouldnt learn alot of the stuff i have......surprising how often something with a high likelihood of failure works out just fine......
