    I don't grow weed. I have too much to lose! Plus I don't think the nutrients the fish gives will be enough to make dank shit!

    I won't grow tomatoes in this system because of how dense the roots are. I did build a separate unit, using a 55 gallon drum and larger siphon, but that will be used in the system at work.

    What kind of bait will you use to catch the fish?

    It would be more fun if you used a rod and reel. Think of the fun your son could have!

    I was thinking what a great salad you could make, but you have to have tomatoes.

    This should be stickied so we can see the progress.

    HEY MAGS!!!!

    Brother, I want an update, please!

    Thanks to SPD for finding this thread for me, I am sure that there are several who would like to revisit this project of yours. Also I am looking at starting up something similar, and any advise after a year of operation I am sure would be of benefit.

    Oh crap... Yeah I can give you an update. The fish are huge now, but I'm in process of redesigning the green house. The Lancaster winds completely demolished my plastic tarp cover, so I'm going with something more permanent.

    Also, the fucking strawberries had these bugs that went ape shit on my plants. I had to pull them all.

    When the new greenhouse is up, I will post more pictures.

    Wow, crazy shit! How did I miss this thread until now?
    How much did all this cost you?
    Have you eaten any of the fish yet?
    Can we at least get a pic of your wife in a bikini working in the greenhouse? :devilwink:
