"We just had 16" of snow in 1 day and my double layer 6 mil poly roofing held up with no problems. My GH is 2x4 framed at 24" roof centers. I put one layer of plastic on the roof followed by furring strips and then a second layer secured by…"

"Rob, I agree with your logic. How long have you been at this. Sounds like you're pretty organized. I do this as a hobby so I'm not as concerned about productivity. With 1000+ Tilapia you'd think I was doing it commercially. Those…"

"Jeff, with the size tanks we are using, we are primarily into plant production. We do believe our fish are reproducing, but not at a rate that we believe is marketable. We are raising koi, not tilapia. From what we've read and have heard from…"

"Welcome Kathy. As long as things don't turn anaerobic there isn't any foul odor. These systems are pretty much self sustained once they get cycled. I haven't noticed any humidity issues. As long as the fish tank(s)are covered you…"

Hello trevor, I am afraid I am very small scale still, still actually in the experimental stages.

Its all in the basement and currently consist of 4 half drums and one 55 gallon drum as fish tank. I have a 55 gallon aquarium that I am trying to breed talapia. If all works out I have a dream to maybe one day start a tilapia farm.

Hey Trevor,

I saw your post on the Jobs Board about a business plan. Do you know of somewhere I can get a good outline for an Organic Aquaponics Farm? I am moving to Kansas where my dad has a massive building and land that I can start my farm and I am looking for a good business plan outline for me to follow and rewrite, do you know where I could find one?

Hi, Trevor.  It's all in the timing, as they say.  I'll update my Profile to indicate the fact that I've relocated to Chicago.  That won't make sharing a cuppa easy, but being connected here in cyberspace ain't a bad thing, right?  Depending on where you are in Ferndale I'm thinkin' its a good place to be doing Aquaponics.  Peace.  Jeremy
