I have been traditional gardening off and on all my life, my son suggested hydroponics. Through my research I found aquaponics, and here I am. I have set up a 12' X 20' greenhouse, in it I have 1 IBC tote for the FT and 4 barrel halves (free) for grow beds. I just started doing fishless cycling yesterday. So here I am!

Had a hard time finding fish in Ohio. I went to 2 hatcheries and finally got 45 channel cats at "Fender's Fish and Llama's". They are up near Sugar Creek. Both venders told me they were having a hard time getting any fish at all, because everything is going to Texas, I guess to re=stock after the dry spell they have been having.

Good morning!

My setup consists of a 275 gallon IBC tote for the FT, 5 half barrels (free) for grow beds, and a 100 gallon Rubbermaid tank for the sump. I used river gravel for media. All of this is in a re purposed portable garage frame turned greenhouse. I added 50 comets yesterday, no floaters yet!

I have several of the grow beds planted with different types of lettuce, grape tomatoes, chives, etc, I need to wait a little more for some of the seedlings to get a bit larger before I move them. Now…
