I need the other article Dave.  How NOT to grow mint in aquaponics.  The bloody stuff grows like mad. 

Aquaponics has quite a different water flow to hydroponics.  That's why hydroponics folks don't have to worry about the roots.  The main lesson for me is that I need to knock it back by about half every quarter.
