Are you an aquaponic gardener already?
If so, what type of system? (pick all that apply)
I have an outdoor 250 gallon tank with about 20 mature tilapias that are the product from 2 small tilapias that my son purchase at Morningstar fisherman about 2 years ago. We have a water growing bed with small rocks and we grow basil, tomatoes, corn, letters, and peppers. We have about 100 fingerlings but we are limited on the space.
Please tell us something else about yourself.
I started this project with my son (now 12) to do something fun and get us closer to nature. It has grown to an addiction and we spend quality time working on it. My son’s school came to see the project and I had to be the teacher for the day explaining the ammonia cycle and way nature work in harmony. The class did not realize they would have a test on it.
