The one thing is that the aquarium is clear. This could lead to algae growing much like when you have fish in it near a window. BTW, it is called hydroponics not hydrophonics.

Here is a link with an idea what you could do.

Even milk jugish is not opaque enough. When you are growing plants, you will need lots of light and it can penetrate pretty well. I would hope to grow plants you plan to put light under the car port. Here is a tip, if there isn't enough light to grow algae then you probably don't have enough light to grow anything successfully. And translucent isn't the same as opaque.

My problems with hydroponics is that I tend to try to take shortcuts. It is a bad habit and one you shouldn't fall into if you want to be successful.

Here's agood site to get you started.
DIY Hydroponics - Hydroponics Made Easy So You Can Do It Yourself
I play around with hydroponics occasionally but have found that Aquaponics is easier and works better. This is because i have an established koi pond so i link the plants to the pond and use the pond water as the nutrient. It seems to work well for me and the fish.
