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've grown herbs before in a DIY aquaponics setup. I just had a pump pushing water through a box where I grew herbs, and it drained back into the tank. They grew just fine, they looked pretty healthy too. You can find alot of DIY plans and videos online if you're interested in doing something like this.
