Hi Jeff . . .

    I have a small system in the kitchen that has been running off a 60 gal aquarium for two years, and just got a small green house built in the back yard that I still haven't put fish into as I don't have the heating system set up yet, (other than a few mosquito fish).  There are a few straggly tomatoes and some flowers for bug maintenance, but hope to have it in full swing for the winter.  November or so.  Lets get together one of these days.  Can I get Tilapia from you?

Welcome Jeffery,

Sounds like a great system. Would love to see some pictures. I live over in Hermiston OR. Maybe when I get over to Portland we can work something I can stop by. Just learning and hope to get started this year.
