Does anyone have a commerical system or a greenhouse system set up.  I am really wanting to start one but trying to research before I spend lots of money.

I would love to see one in action

Hey, I know that it can seem exciting to jump right in to aquaponics. However, before a radical investment, I suggest hiring someone or even taking a course. Just a suggestion.

Start small, maybe one IBC (~200 gal fish tank) and a few growbeds. This allowed me to get the hang of things and only kill a reasonable amount of fish a couple of times. Then I expanded the following year to 900 gal, many GBs in addition to the original system I now use for fingerlings.

Do you know a Place that would be good to take a course?

I am trying to start small but in my head it always comes out so huge.  Thanks for the info.

I know there's a farm set up with Friendly Aquaponics in Tennessee somewhere and they teach classes. I built mine from their instructions and took his class, but I'm going back in and putting in filters.
