Hi Raychel,

Amazing that just a few days ago I was surfing this site and came across some of your comments.  I was impressed to the point that I talked to my wife, Patty, about you and what you're doing and some of the realizations you've had on your aquaponics journey.  Thanks for sharing.  We're still riding high after our training from Tim and Susanne this past October.  Haven't gone into it far enough for reality to hit us yet.  Still waiting for the nitrogen cycle to kick in.

Hi Albert and Larry

Glad you started this group.  Sorry Albert I find your website to hard to navigate.  I am not a techie and when things frustrate me I just back off.  this site is rigtht up my alley because I can be dumb and still do it.  I got 4 new WWOOFers last week and they are great.  One thing about having them come in and help you introduce people to aquaponics and you get some work done.

Hi Albert,

Looks like you're doing a lot with aquaponics in Hawaii.  I'm just starting out.  Where do you get your prawns from?
