What is the benefit in CHOP MARK 2 system of having the water split to flow to the fish tank and grow bed at the same time? Why is that preferable over the CHOP 1 SYSTEM?

Thanks for the friend request, but if you need to contact me, it's always better to do so through our website, Mainly, it's because of how busy we are, but also because Sylvia has proven herself to be extremely adversarial to us, sadly enough. Wish there were not so much ego involved in this tiny community, but there certainly seems to be. This is HER site, and I do not wish to tread upon her territory. Odd, since she and Murray attended our training in Florida (for no fee whatsoever), but whatever.  And overall, the discussion on this site regarding Friendly Aquaponics is far from friendly. It's hard to want to hang out in a place where people are mean, and have lots of spare time to gossip....and I see no point whatsoever in responding to their attacks when there is far more important work to be done!

Much respect,

Hi Gene,

I've been following your CHOP2 vs CHOP1 discussion.  Does your company have a website?

Welcome Gene,


Thanks for joining the Aquaponic Gardening community!  I hope you find it a fun place to explore aquaponics.  There is a real blend of experienced and new aquapons in this community, so please don’t hesitate to get in there and start asking questions.  Everyone is quite happy to help out new members – no question is too basic. 


A great place to start is to read the “How to Use This Site” link on the upper right corner, “Start Here” section of the Main page.  You might also find the “Aquaponic Gardening Rules of Thumb” guidelines helpful.


Please participate! 


If you can afford it I would also appreciate a donation through the “Donate button” on the right side of the home page.  This helps me with monthly site fees, but is NOT a requirement of membership.  If you can contribute… great!  It will be very much appreciated.


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