HEy MArk! Welcome. Your system looks great and I'm curious about your trout. Where do you live and how cold is your water?

Hello Mark,

Yes we live close to La Garita. Our AP system started to work around 2 months, I posted some pics. But right now the vegetables are really gorgeous, zucchini and cucumber are behaving as well as the rest of the vegetables. Today we were planning to take more pics so we will see them soon. We have 4 half barrels working, and the other 4 are working with quartilla the same volcanic rock that you are using in your system. We already met Farmer Brown we went to visit his project down in Turrubares. All the projects are kind of different but the important thing is that Aquaponics works and its a good motivation for the owners. Any time you are welcome to visit us. My husband and I are biologist and very interested to share with all the people our project and get nore info from those that area in this kind of project.
