"Plants look great Rob.   So is that just one seed growing ?  I'm assuming you start them outside of the aquaponics then move them over once they get to a certain size?"

"Big fan of granite here as well. $18 per ton PU at crusher just 1/2hr away, washed and graded. You can't beat it. Looks great, stays looking great, handles nicely, and adds valuable trace minerals."

"Rob, your designs just keep getting "cleaner" and simpler. Big fan of simple. I use 90's instead of clog prone ball valves myself. KISS Your Dura-skrim handling is superb as well. I have seen some pretty ugly DS installs lol."

"as long as the hydro is as low as it can be and after this year I think that a few pumps and fish heaters are costing less then the electric oil heater that I am using now. Only at night but still costly enough."

"what about switching from soil to a aquaponic system? Is it easier to heat a tank and keep plant at 70 plus degrees then to try to heat a room in the winter to 70 degrees right?"

Hi Rob. I have been using goldfish and koi in my system that I started one year ago in SA. I would like to add in tilapia this spring. I was told I might be able to purchase some from you. Is this correct?

Have you ever worked with anything vertical or towers? I just got my tower in over a month ago and its way sweet!

Do you prefer gravel over rafts?  Building a setup similar to yours,  just dont want to do it twice.  Never tried rafts yet,  it seems i can grow more in gravel tho.

Hi Rob - it looks like you have a large operation, how many people work with you? Do you keep track of your total output? About how many square feet of growing space do you have?

Cheers

Hey rob thanks for all the info and helping me dial in my system.The fish are doing great and  I plan on building that heater tomorrow.My wife and I really enjoyed the tour of your facility.your input was spot on...I learned more from you in a couple hours than I have in weeks searching on the net.

Howdy Rob, It's John Fullerton, I've been away from things as of late. I hope life is treating you well.  Awesome post on the heater.  Just saying hello and checking in, nothing major at this time.  Still working on getting the greenhouse built and finished.  Still want to come down and check you out sometime and just working on figuring out the time that's best.  Life is super busy.  Take care and talk to you soon.
