You're really close by -- if you can spare the time in mid to late October, we sure would like to see your setup.  Thanks.

 No I am not up yet, I am regrouping and starting smaller.  I really love the concept but don't know what I am doing yet.

Constant flood and drain means you have a small drain hole and your input is enough to sustain water in the growbed at all times? At what depth does the water stay at?

What is the best tasting fish to stock a small NE GA pond?  The Pond is in a field with cows, spring fed and 5 feet at the deepest point and 40 feet across.

Hey dude, you got some interesting ideas going on there. I'd love to know more.

Good Morning Sir,


Just wanted to send you a note to say I am still alive.  Been swamped trying to get investor money, but hopefully things will turn soon.  Hope all is well!!!!

Hey Chris,


How did the delivery turn out?  Let me know when you have time.


Take Care,

Hey Neighbor,


The eventual goal is to cover the entire pool and build out a commercial scale system that will use the full space available. I am taking baby steps though.  I have covered the shallow end, have two small test systems up (1 media, 1 dwc), and am working towards a larger system with a few IBC totes.


If you are ever around town, I would love to bounce ideas off you. I'll keep you in mind next time I'm headed north.


All the best,

I've never figured out how to reliably tell male and female channel catfish apart and to try breeding in such small tanks, I think you would have to be certain you were putting a proper pair together. Catfish don't mature till 3-5 years in age and by then they could be really big fish. The one I kept for two years (which means it was probably three years old) weighed in at 10 lbs.

Is it just one IBC you have as a fish tank? Seems like a lot of fish if so.
