Hello, I live in north Fort Worth TX and am in the middle of constructing my first system which has a 275g FT and eight or nine half blue barrel GB's. My family has land just west of Fort Worth and have started a produce bus. which we would like Aquaponics to be a big part of it. I also make cheese and love to play Disc Golf.
