    Aquaponics? You gots? I wants.

    I've been toying with the idea for close to a year now.. and I think I'm confident I know enough to try it out now. Stupid right? This coming from a former hydroponics salesman. I finally came up with a design I like, and it's going to cost me probably under 50 bucks to set up the system itself, minus the fish. So this week hopefully I will get together my plant tray, medium, and build up the prototype with the rest. Maybe I'll keep this thread going as my project log.. who knows.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    I just sold all of my stuff to my brother in law over the weekend. I had put it together a few years ago, it was small but it was working great, I lost interest when we moved to a our new home. All I have left is a 50 gallon breeder tank and stand. =0(
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
