restart of my system after building project around the system

so i ......2013 first plants

I have not posted much lately but I am still on the go....

the new fish are getting big and they look well

I have managed to get some plants growing...I had a problem with old seeds

very few of first and second lot of planted seed came up

new seeds and better results

I decided against the indoors with bsfl for now...did one or two tests indoors...not very successful but I learned some...worth the experiment.

I have more than enough BSF larvae in summer  to feed the fish not doing much so I need to give more attention on how I am going to keep larvae...freeze or dry for the winter months.

Hi Kirston

old post but this should answer your question

last summer at the time when things were really going well with the bsfl  I never had fish to feed them to. I basically only collected some craw of larvae to take through winter and the rest did what they would do in nature craw of and pupate for the next summer. One of the larvae bins stood next to a stack of bricks in my yard.....I moved the bricks on Saturday and this was in-between and under bricks. I get worried for this summer...the neighbours
