How can I convert aquariums into indoor gardens?

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

I have 2 decent size aquariums (35 and 50 gallon) collecting dust in my basement and I was hoping to put them to good use as indoor gardens in my kitchen. I am looking to grow some basic veggies and herbs to be used for fresh eating and in cooking, organic preferred. However, I haven’t a clue how to use them as indoor gardens and am especially concerned about drainage. Also I do not receive adequate light in my home and would need to rely on artificial light.

I am having trouble finding actual how to guides with instructions on starting an indoor garden using an aquarium. Is this just a silly idea or a actual possibility? All help is greatly appreciated.
