Profile Information

How did you find us?
Friend gave me your address
Are you an aquaponic gardener already?
If so, what type of system? (pick all that apply)
Start date: 06/12/10 Indoor (garage), Still cycling as of 06/30/10 and started with 60 petstore goldfishs. As of today, I have 38 fish (06/30/20.
My fish tank is a Rubbermaid: 58"L x 39"W x 25"H/ 150 gallons. I have two grow beds at this time and they are made by Rubbermaid as well: 52"L x 31" x 12"H/50 gallons. My Sump is also made by Rubbermaid: 40"L x 32"W x 24"H. The system is a flood and drain and the growing medium is one of my favorite (hydroton). The system pumb is a Laguna MAX-FLO, 600.
Please tell us something else about yourself.
Please notice by the numbers that my aquaponic system is on a small scale right now, but there are plans for me to come out of this closet (Room space using now), I am in now and eventually grow, grow, grow, grow, grow, grow & grow. Oh yes, I am willing to take suggestion from all.
