Hey Jim,

My AP setup is actually in hibernation mode and sitting in the basement with only a few greens growing it in. Nothing edible but just to help keep the water clean for the 15 or so gold fish and danios I have in the small 20 gallon tank. It's cold here in the DC area so it's not too great for growing anything right now.

Thanks for asking.
