  1. Good day all, I am new to the forum so I apologize if this topic has already been discussed elsewhere. I have seen the following post; In a few years I plan on moving up to Maine. The weather is quite cold in the winter and relatively warm in the summer. My main concern is the cold weather where sometimes it drops down to -10 degrees Fahrenheit. Would it be possible to build a raft system deep enough (I was thinking about 4 feet) and have the fish and crustaceans live in the grow bed? This would make it much easier for me to heat the water and would make it much easier for me since I don't have to worry about pipes freezing and bursting. As mentioned in the forum, I would have to add a screen in order to prevent buildup on the root system of the plants. My idea was to make the Bed about 12 feet wide, use 8 foot wide rafts and have 4 feet of clearing for the fish to receive some sunlight as well as feeding/maintenance. Does anyone foresee any issues with this design? Parasites, bacteria, lack of circulation? I appreciate any feedback! Kamil
