1. The Practical Aquaponics discussion forum has been in operation for the last 5 years...

    We have enjoyed giving this service free of charge however ongoing increasing financial costs of running this service is making it increasingly difficult. Up until now we have resisted advertising as a means of a revenue stream to help run this forum but it has become inevitable that extra revenue is required to run this forum.

    We have introduced a donate button to help offset the cost of running this forum. It is completely voluntary, but if you would like to donate, all donations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Murray..

    Not bad.

    I'd like to dig in a fish pond too one day but local bylaws would require me to fence it all in.

    It is fenced in..I placed it in the ground for the heating/cooling .. where I am in FL the surface water maintains an approximate 70 degree water temp in the winter...I may have to put in a rocket stove but so far the temps have not been bad...
