Are you an aquaponic gardener already?
If so, what type of system? (pick all that apply)
A small group of us are working on designing a system for the Community Greenhouse at Naropa University. We are working on how to float a tank (fiberglass bathtub possibly ) within an existing 800 gallon tank to use as our fish tank. We need to start with a simpler design and eventually progress up to using the larger existing tank and a lot more of the greenhouse growing space.

Thanks for the friend request, but if you need to contact me, it's always better to do so through our website, Mainly, it's because of how busy we are, but also because Sylvia has proven herself to be extremely adversarial to us, sadly enough. Wish there were not so much ego involved in this tiny community, but there certainly seems to be. This is HER site, and I do not wish to tread upon her territory. Odd, since she and Murray attended our training in Florida (for no fee whatsoever), but whatever.  And overall, the discussion on this site regarding Friendly Aquaponics is far from friendly. It's hard to want to hang out in a place where people are mean, and have lots of spare time to gossip....and I see no point whatsoever in responding to their attacks when there is far more important work to be done!

Much respect,

Hey Dan!  Thanks for the friend request.  So glad to have met you and have you here for our first training.  Definitely keep in touch and we will see you around, at least here!

What sort of beds would you be using for the veggies?

You might consider floating a cage for the fish within the larger tank rather than trying to float the bathtub. (Probably easier and cheaper.)

Everyone is quite happy to help out new members – no question is too basic.
