How did you find us?
Are you an aquaponic gardener already?
Hobbyist, looking to expand!
If so, what type of system? (pick all that apply)
flood and drain media, I learned of Auqaponics in early 2010, I have watched hours of youtube videos on hydroponic/ aquaponics/ aeroponics/ even fogponics. In early march, I setup my first aquaponics experiment. I used a 35g aquarium, with two grow beds (maybe 3g each) made from small sterilite boxes. Without supplimental light, I have had limited luck growing plants in them. Only some onions have managed to hang on through to summer.
How old is your system?
2 yrs or more
What type of fish do you grow with? (select all that apply)
How big is your fish tank?
55gal adding a 275gal IBC Tote
Please tell us something else about yourself.
For years I have been trying to grow coral in a saltwater aquarium. I have learned a lot about the nitrogen cycle and understand how the very process that fills a saltwater tank with unwanted algea, is the process you need to grow great vegetables.

I think I have Blues. Got the first batch of fry Christmas day. The second one came in Jan. 13. Not sure how long they need to grow to be considered fingerlings. Just noticed another female expecting today.
