Hey all, as I mentioned in my first post, I've been a lurker on this forum for quite a while now, learning everything I can on aquaponics. After a short stint with hydroponics to grow peppers indoors I learned about aquaponics, which is alot more fun obviously. Ofcourse this forum quickly became my main source of information and the abundance of it gave me the confidence to try it for myself.

My first system is a small ~80L indoor system, which is about 2 years old now. Everything but the growbed is hidden from sight in a closet and is tucked away in a corner of our living room. After tinkering with it for about a year I decided to scale things up and built an outdoor system in a greenhouse. This system is about 1800L and consists of an IBC FT and ST, with three bathtubs for growbeds, for a nice 1:1 ratio on FT:Wet media. Unfortunately I didnt finish it before summer came along, so it hasn't grown tons for us over the past few months. It's currently only lightly stocked with 12 goldfish ranging in size (12-25cm), but I'd like to try some edible fish next year, such as the Jade Perch.

I'm currently still debating putting up lighting and, ofcourse, ways to heat my greenhouse in a way that's not cost-prohibitive. For now I'll have to get my behind in gear to put up a system thread :roll:

Thanks for having me and the wealth of information available out here.
