I'm getting confused as there seem to be conversations on my page that seem to be meant for other people?

Cool.  And feel free to correct me where I might mess up as I'm good in layman's terms but when it comes to some of the more technical chemistry and other things I get a big vague.


Aquaponics started as a hobby but it is addictive as you may already know  I've been trying to make a business out of it but I still support myself with "other" work while I try to get the new business more self sufficient.  I'm actually an audio engineer/stage hand/AV tech by trade and training but I figure it isn't that hard to make the jump from plumbing electrons to plumbing water flows.

Welcome Jon,

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 Home page.  You might also find the “Aquaponic Gardening Rules of Thumb” guidelines helpful.

Please add a profile image, participate and check in with us every day!  We are constantly posting news about aquaponics and the good food movement.

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