Re: “A guy called Alligator Joe demonstrates how tilapia and basil could heal the planet

What a well crafted, fun article! I want to meet this guy! Thanks for spreading the word about aquaponics. It truly is going to be a very important part of our sustainable food growing toolkit in the future, and it's not nearly as complex as Shane Heschel makes it sound. As an aquaponic gardener I worried about ammonia levels during the first month, but don't any longer - nitrifying bacteria balance the system. I never even think about the levels of phosphorus and potassium (more of a hydroponics than an aquaponics problem). Issues with insects happen with any garden - this isn't unique to aquaponics. And while I control temperature to keep the fish happy (just keep it above 65 degrees), humidity concerns aren't a part of my life either - there is plenty of humidity because of the fish tanks. Actually a pretty simple way to grow because you are working with nature, not against her. Plus no weeds, no back-strain, no deer! And fertilizer greets me in the morning!
