I've been gardening and growing veggies since my dad started me as a kid. We had little planter boxes and often started seedlings indoors.

Also as a kid we always had fishtanks all over the house raising everything from Sea Horses to accidentally becoming SwordTail breeders (guess that's what happens when you buy two pairs ;-)

I bought a basic grow light htis year and my seedlings have just taken off, so I started looking into how I could grow more than jsut seedlings indoors year round, and stumbled into the discovery of Aquaponics after seeing SweetWater Organics featured online.
