We are almost finished building the greenhouse. It's only 6'x7' we are starting out small. I'm chomping at the bit to get started. I have a 20 gal. aquarium and a 55 gal rain barrel for fish. I live in Virginia 

beach, virginia. And I was told at the fish store that Tilipa are not allowed in Virginia so I need some advice what fish should I use if I want to grow fish for food. Any suggestions???

The 38 Gallon is set up and running with gold fish and a small aquarium pump to circulate the water. The water tests are perfect. I'll have the other pumps installed and the grow beds and plumbing finished by the end of the week. I have added a 55 gallon barrel for fish also and need to get that started. but it's coming along, one step at a time.

I live in texas, but the local feed store have a truck that comes by now and then with catfish, perch, bass and crappie for stocking ponds. The cats came in 4-6 inch or 6-8 inch. they advertise them for sale in bags of 50 but will sell less.

That is terrific! Where can we see pictures?

Or maybe I can come visit? I live in Chesapeake.

Of course you can... we would love to show it to you. It's very small but we are proud of it.

We are getting ready to put plants in hopefully in the next couple of days.

Email me at Photo0va@gmail.com and I'll give you the instructions how to get here.
