Aloha everyone on Maui

Are you getting that rain we just had.  I didn't fair to bad as I have flat land.  The fish did real well as well as the plants.  Plants on land get beaten up by the rain.

Have any of you given any thought to joining the Aquqponic Association.I am interested in what you think about the idea.  Right now I am the Regional Director for Hawaii and we need a branch on Maui.  I am interested in candid answers so if you want to send me a personal note feel free to do so.  I am very interested in Aquapons from Hawaii feeling about an Association.  Hope to hear from you good or bad.

Is that you, Robert?  I haven't been reading the posts lately.  Sorry to hear about your ick problem.  I went through that around April of last year, and it was horrible, but it hasn't resurfaced since.  Just remember, people giving you advice are in different locations, climate, water pH and chemistry, temperature, fish, etc., and what works for them may not work for you.  The posts on this site hurt me and helped me, so I can't complain.  Using that information, I had to learn on my own what worked for me.  Sorry for getting off track.

As far as the AAOM is concerned, I guess we'll just keep tracking this discussion for further instructions on what to do next.

Aloha, aquapons! Would like more info on AAOM. Mahalo!

I'd be willing to be secretary or treasurer.  Whatever needs to be filled.  Anything to help this things get going

Aloha Larry, yes its me. Fish is doing fine, got the hospital going for my angel gold fish and got the others on watch. Can't seem to get a working heater from Walmart, three of them not working had to return each one. That's my sitrep for now. Hopefully this association gets wings.

Aloha Robert.  I got a couple of heaters that you can borrow if you want to try them.  They worked the last time I used them (almost a year ago).

Mahalo for the offer. I got another one to try out hopefully this works. Btw, I noticed today that the one I returned yesterday was back on the shelf! I told the girl working at the returns that it was not working. Makes me wonder if I was buying a previously used one that was broken? Hmm? Talk to you later take care.

Hi everyone I had to go out and got back late.  I will get an update on the Association tomorrow and tell you all the details.  There is supposed to be a link on the site but I never can find it.  Let me see if I can get you the link.  I should have come prepared but I had convinced myself no one was interested.

I'll get back soon Raychel

Better to invest in good equipment that will last instead of having to replace crappy equipment over and over and risk something happening to the fish.... just sayin
