My husband picked up a shower filter for me to put inline with the hose so I don't have to fill buckets for offgassing every day. When I looked up what the filter media is it says it uses, "clorgon…Continue

Hello Rachel,

Your pic seems kind of familiar. Do you post or blog on other gardening/ homesteading forums? Backyard chickens maybe?

I live in Phoenix and trying to plan a tour of aquaponics people's systems, if you would be interested in seeing what others are doing in our area and/or would like to show off your own system please send me an email at and put AP TOUR in the subject line.

Hi Rachel,

Great chicken!

Thanks for joining the Aquaponic Gardening community! I hope you find it a great place to explore aquaponics. Looks like you've already found some friends! I’ve started the ball rolling with a few general forum topics, and will try to add more on a regular basis, but I’m hoping that you and others will add your own topics as they occur to you. I’ve also added some of my favorite videos and a few random photos…again, please share your favorites with us!

We have just a few simple rules: stay on the subject of aquaponics and keep it cordial (no flaming!). If someone decides to break these rules they will get a warning, and then be banned from the community after that. But of course I’m hoping that never happens!

Thanks again for joining us, and I look forward to getting to know you.

Hi, Rachel! It sounds like you have some wonderful birds! I don't think my HOA would allow chickens... I wish! We had chickens when I was a little girl, and the eggs were delicious. Good luck with aquaponic gardening this year!
