Starting my first Aquaponic project.... For many years I had tropical and saltwater tanks one 55 gallon and one 30 for awhile . I have also been very into growing organic heirloom tomatos and other vegtables. Looking forward to using aquaponics to grow all my favorites.Please checkout my website http://theurbanorganicgarden.weebly.com/
