    To me a while to figure this one. You mean gardening australia? Watched that episode. They didn't
    go into enough detail IMHO....

    Thanks for putting that up Freediver!

    For people who missed it, it's about 7 minutes into this week's Gardening Australia, and should be available on iview.

    I thought it was an interesting aticle, and a great looking set-up.

    One of the best setups I've seen. I'm not sure about eating comets though.

    great to see so many Tandanus! (good eatin' too) Peng has lots of videos on his youtube channel too: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5zfNTsLJItgpETSWWMstVg

    I have a big glasshouse and have been accumulating tubs and whatnot but havn't managed to pull the trigger on aquaponics yet. Even using recycled junk the setup/running costs seem high compared to a dirt garden. ... but you get to play with fish and plants and that makes it very attractive to me!

    Thanks for sharing, yup does look expensive. Was think of floating lettuce on my ponds to reduce cost of setup

    It's my dream - one day to have a big enough aquaponics set up to grow my veg!

    Hong you can certainly grow lettuce floating on your pond.

    Great to see his enthusiasm
