Think of it like a book club or library. A place to share recommended titles, links and articles. Start a discussion about a particular book or ask for recommendations from othersSee More

It's been such a long time since I've logged in, but I do thank-you for taking the time to respond to my post. I got really discouraged after all the bugs showed up on my lettuce and I didn't know what to do. But I do plan to try again this spring :)

I just asked her and she said definitely.  Bought quite a few things and your mom kindly gave her some mint.

Hi - my friend in Clermont is Pam Gillmore.   I think she toured your facility recently.

OK, noted on the salt, is that rock salt?

What does PPT translate to. How many pounds per gallon or kgs per liters of salt?

In desperation I put in 500ml of 10 ppm of Colodial silver. The total water in fish tank and resevoir is 660 gallons. I had 100 Tilapia fry in this system and think I have about 70 now. All the veggies appear to be doing well at present especially the tomatoes.

Thanks for the help!

You stated, "Most fish diseases that people call fungus are actually bacterial infections"

How do I get rid of this on my Tilapia, its killing them off. My veggies are doing fine so far?

I humanure too! Love brother Jenkins' book. I've written some blogs on that myself. I'm new to aquaponics so I'm going to have to find a new use for my compost. I'm thinking fruit trees? At any rate, nice to meet you. Thanks for the comments on my question.
