Hello forum. I just found out about Aquaponics a couple of weeks ago and having been reading as much as I can every since. I've used fish tank/pond water for my plants in the past, but never in a re-circulating system. My Christmas project is going to be build a grow bed to sit on top of my 110L aquarium. I'm going to see what I can grow there over the winter in front of the window, but I don't expect much for next couple of months as we don't get much sunlight this time of year in Yellowknife, NT, Canada (62.5 N). You can see my weather here: http://www.climate.weatheroffice.gc.ca/climate_normals/results_e.html?Province=ALL&StationName=Yellowknife&SearchType=BeginsWith&LocateBy=Province&Proximity=25&ProximityFrom=City&StationNumber=&IDType=MSC&CityName=&ParkName=&LatitudeDegrees=&LatitudeMinutes=&LongitudeDegrees=&LongitudeMinutes=&NormalsClass=A&SelNormals=&StnId=1706& As you can see I only get on average 45.3 hours of bright sunshine for all of January (~1.5 hrs/day). However, come summer that number is over 350 hours. We have a short (~3 months), but strong outdoor growing season. I look forward to reading through the historical posts to learn as much as I can and maybe ask some questions.
