My name is David and we just moved to Roan Mountain, TN from Durham, NC area.  Loaded up the fish tank IBC and rock grow beds on a trailer and up the hill we came.  Just got them unloaded and on the greenhouse pad.  The new build begins.  Love the weather and looking forward to some trout.  Contact or visit anytime!  Davidtoadilyhandmade@startmail.comSee More

We sell our basic aquaponic manual, $50 that has burper pumps and siphons in it, and then we sell the $100 actual patent application itself....via email. It has 75 pages of text and drawings (over 35 drawings) to patent specs.
