STARTING SYSTEM – 10 gallon (2006) – desk top
Everyone starts somewhere. The important thing is to get into the game. Some start big, some start small. Until you start and jump in you will always have questions as to how aquaponics works and is it with in my reach. Fact is anyone can do it and be good at it. Will you make mistakes, you bet. But that is OK. Will you KILL fish, yes you will and it will smell bad. But keep on and you will learn what you need to know.
Well here is where I started back in 2006. I first followed along in discussion groups for about 2 years before I got into the game. I wish I would have done it sooner, but back then aquaponics was very much a hobby concept and really only one commercial operation in the US (S&S). There was a lot work being done in Australia with backyard systems, but not a lot of blogging going on yet to gain perspective on different designs.
GET STARTED AT SOME LEVEL AS SOON AS YOU CAN
