aquaponics anyone?

Has anyone tried aquaponics (aquaculture + hydroponics)? ie., use aquarium water to raise edible plants? I read that leafy greens are possible with aquarium water, but there would not be enough nutrients for the likes to tomatos.

Just wondering if anyone has given this a try. I'm thinking about plumbing my koi and goldfish pond to grow some edibles.

I'm growing a sweet potato in my overflow box and it is looking good. I've started to take the larger slips off and I'm putting them in the sump refugium. I'm wondering if they can survive submerged. The snails and crayfish like the dying leaves.
