Ok, lets say one wants to do aquaponics, but does not want to use fish?  Can the same thing be achieved by just using crayfish, just shrimp, just frogs?  I am just thinking , or trying to, think…Continue

Good day,
I picked interest in you after going through your short profile and demanding it is necessary for you to write immediately. I have something very important to discuss with you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( for full details.
Best regards,
Ronald Morris.

Definitely gonna go check out the youtubes.    Everyone at work is already wanting to see what I'm doing.   Thinking I'll skip the small aquarium and get a large plastic tote and go that route.   I put your number in my phone in case I hit a snag.   My cell is 721-5381 in case you get a call from an unknown number.

Thanks for the input.   I'm trying to get started without a greenhouse and not sure it is going to work but am certainly giving it the old college try.   I'm thinking a dutch bucket setup for now.  A friend gifted me with a small aquarium so I'll start playing around with that until I can get a larger setup going.   Thought that I could keep the tank on the porch for the shade - especially since its supposed to be 100 here on Friday.

The reports of my death have been really overblown.  I have to admit, it was close.  Am home from the extended stay in the hospital after the surgeries.  Again the doctor's comment is that I am just too mean to die.  So, any way, was surfing trying to catch up and saw this on the collection of Black Soldier Flies.  To me it is amazing that others are just finding some of the things we have known for a long time.…
