"Hi Lori - Thanks for the quick response. I would love to visit your farm. Someone also suggested contacting Max Myers in Willits. Maybe I could make two stops on my visit. I sent you a friend request so I can message you and…"
"Hi Max47 and Larry - I am located in Redwood Valley (20 min. north of Ukiah). We have 2 systems, 5 or 6 years old now. Have not been active on this site...but my systems have been up and running all this time. We raise goldfish, koi, bass and…"
"You are right it is carp, I wonder where it came from, the pond where we found these fish has Koi & Goldfish only. No one from the outside has access to this pond and now we have hundreds of this little guys.
"Hey Max47 - I live between Marysville and Oroville in the foothills. I joined this group last week. I'm just starting my first aquaponic garden and I'm looking for others in my area who already have a system set up, so I can…"

"I suppose the real question is how you define practical? I am sure there are many others here with more experience and on a much larger scale. But, here is my two cents.
