Are you an aquaponic gardener already?
Please tell us something else about yourself.
Am an engineer (electrical), very interested in aquaponics. Have been researching for months now and ready to start. Will have a small indoor system running in a few weeks, backyard system this summer, larger system this fall ... hopefully.

Here is the link to their site, I had the name wrong, it's Beachwood Lava, seems to be same weight as the red and black lava but the size was better, fewer chunks over 1 inch, and it looked like it was going to be easier on the hands.
I picked it up at Fisher farms here in London, they are one of those landscape places that sell and deliver topsoil and stuff. i bought 4 five gallon buckets for $10 that would have been $80 for the same amount in expanded clay, and it weighs about the same. The down side is the particle size is less consistent but I can deal with that for the price difference.
I am hoping to pickup some tomorrow, I will ask if they know someone down your way that carries it. I was told that it is mined here in Ontario or Quebec.
yep seems there are only a few on here from this side of the lakes but it's all good. Let me know what you are looking for I might be able to help. My biggest issue was finding a media within my budget - hydroton is awesome until you calculate the cost for a sysstem of any size. I ended up using reclaimed brick at first, and now i'm working with some Brentwood Lava rock I picked up from a landscaping place. Anyhow, good luck with your system let me know if I can help.
