Hey Pat, my name is Brian Cheatham. I'm new to aquaponics but it has become my obsession. I'm a student at UNT and noticed you live in Waco. I was hoping to start a discussion with you and learn from some of your experiences since I will be experiencing the same climate challenges. I'm graduating this May and attempting to start a commercial operation immediately after. For now, I have a 250 gallon backyard flood and drain system which I built this fall just before it got cold. During the winter, I have an indoor system set up to save my fish and to experiment indoors. I would love to hear from you and find out local places to find good medium, fish, duckweed, etc. Thanks,
