Hey everyone. It seems that every time I have a question related to aquaponics, this forum comes up somewhere in the search results so I figured it was about time to join the community, say hi, and see if I could not only get my questions answered quicker, but also contribute to the community as well.

Quick blurbs about me:
I live near Biloxi, MS
I am a Master Gardener and enjoy volunteering my time to help others learn more about plants and gardening
I have been dabbling in hydroponics for years and recently decided to make the switch to aquaponics as a more earth-friendly solution as well as to look at the viability of creating 100% self-sustaining systems

My son and I recently built our first system. It was a father-son project - you can see it at Instructables where I posted a pretty reasonable "how-to" on how we built it. It is about a 200g tank with roughly 60g grow bed, flood and drain @ roughly every 15 minutes. We built it out of mostly recycled materials (stuff laying around my workshop, house, etc). The only thing we spent money on was the plumbing and rocks (we used lava rocks)

I look forward to meeting more of you and discussing ideas.

Thanks for the welcome.

Kachok - isn't Robertsdale near Foley? If so, not to far from me - maybe 1½ hours

Greetings,

I'm also from the area (Slidell, La).

Maybe you should post in this thread also...

viewtopic.php?t=4036
It is the Southern Louisiana/Mississippi Roll call thread.

Do you have any pictures of your systems?

Scotte

That's awesome Kachok - have a great birthday!

Hey Scotte - nice to meat you. I have some photos - will definitely have to put them up later. There is also a link in my intro (last paragraph, first sentence) that goes to Instructable - I uploaded pics and a "how I built my system from scraps" how-to.

It is cool that you are from Slidell - I would love to see your systems sometime. Your blog was one of the sites I used for reference when I was doing my initial research. Thanks for putting it out there!

Hey Damion, I'm from the MS Gulf Coast as well; I live in Saucier. I've been looking for the people of the coast who are active in aquaponics; I'm just starting myself. How has your system been holding up?

In that case, you are about 5 minutes from me. :)
I'm on Mill Ridge Rd., right off Turan.
PM me for my number if you want to talk/come by and see my system functioning.
