Im just starting in Aquaponics and wanted to know if there were any in the Charleston Area that I could come and check out.  I havent built anything yet but plan to start in the next week or two.  I kind of want to see one in action to understand it more.  Any tips for a newbie would be appreciated greatly.

Just finished my layout of the DWR portion of my system. Thanks to Shain for his lettuce seedlings. It's getting warm enough the spinach and peppers I planted are starting to poke thru.

Yes Wendell I'm interested in 50. We will talk before then.

I got in touch with the breeder in Orangeburg. His price is $1.25 for 2-4" fingerlings. He will work out a discount for quantity and possible to meet him closer than Orangeburg to pick up fish. Let me know if you want any I was thinking about going on 4.13 or 4.20 to get me a 100 fish.

I have a phone number from a guy in Orangeburg. I called but had to leave message. Still waiting to hear back. There is a store in Ashville but I was wanting someplace closer. I'm sure there are several who want fish we could probably pool our money and buy them on quantity discount. I would take some lettuce seedlings off you. Shoot me a private message or call me and I will come pick up.

I was excited to come out; but we had made plans to go out of town last weekend.  I have a surplus of lettuce seedlings if you need some.  Where do you plan on getting the tilapia from?
