Arlene Baker commented on David Schwinghamer's group Arizona Aquaponics
"I am going to be selling my house, and I need to 'clear out' all the stuff. I have a 45 gallon fish tank with a small grow bed on it and some goldfish, (3 that are about 4" long), couple of plecos, and a couple of loaches. I would…"

Arlene Baker left a comment for James Wilson
"Hi, Jim. Yes, I think I might want to go ahead. I can rescue some of the guppies into the house tank, and sacrifice the rest, I guess. How far are the blue tilapia your brother has? I hate to transport them too far, and lose them. I assume they are…"

"John: I wonder. Have any of your neighbors sprayed their yards or anything, that the wind might have carried it over into your tank? I always worry about things like that...."

"Robert, so sorry to hear about 'the disaster' - it always seems it is something, isnt' it? A few days ago, I realized I hadn't heard the bell kick in, and sure nuff, when I checked, the pump wasn't pumping. Dread...I took it…"

Arlene Baker commented on David Schwinghamer's group Arizona Aquaponics
"Would it be safe to get some blue tilapia right now? I mean, fingerling size, since we are headed into the heat, or should I wait til the summer ends. I currently  have lots of guppies, a few albino catfish (tiny), 4 plecos, and 4 yoyo loaches…"

"This group is a wonderful group. Al came over and he is going to help me move my system and thus keep it! Thank you, Al. You're a GEM. Robert called, and has some pipe, and I will be calling him later to find out when convenient to get. You…"

Arlene Baker commented on David Schwinghamer's group Arizona Aquaponics
"Al, how very kind of you to offer to help, and I appreciate it so much. But honestly, it would require a pallet jack or something, and truth be told, there is a pool in the back, that takes up most of the yard, so that there is little other place…"

Arlene Baker commented on David Schwinghamer's group Arizona Aquaponics
"Tomato roots in bell. Indeed to find a pipe that is 6" in diameter. But I am going to step out here and ask if anyone wants the setup, including the growbed and pimpand air stones for 100.00$ it has about three dozen guppies, a few black…"

"Thanks, Jeff; Kim. The issue is placement, and it is so hard to move without a major amount of EFFORT lol. I haven't had any issues with electrical, but for some reason, all of a sudden my stupid bell siphon won't stop/break siphon. I have…"

Arlene Baker commented on David Schwinghamer's group Arizona Aquaponics
"Welll, folks. I'm going to have to admit; I am getting a bit discouraged with the AP thing. Why? Well, last year I located the system under my back awning, which gets the morning sun, and then only the late afternoon sun (as the back of the…"

Arlene Baker commented on David Schwinghamer's group Arizona Aquaponics
"Thanks, Kim and Jeff. Kim: sorry you had to give up your fishies. You might want to just get a large aquarium in the house, and make a mini-grow bed with a light. That is what I have got going on in process right now. Will still keep the outside…"

Arlene Baker commented on David Schwinghamer's group Arizona Aquaponics
"I'm going to toss this out here again. Has anyone here, or know of someone, who has converted their pool to a large pond? I know about the Gardenpool.org group; I am more interested in keeping the pool (which is a diving pool of 25,000 gallons)…"

"Is there any business here in town that does aquaponics for a co-op or employee owned operation, or ? I would love to work in a place like that. Just curious. Now that I'm retired, I have time to look up all kinds of things. Am moving some of…"

Arlene Baker commented on David Schwinghamer's group Arizona Aquaponics
"Thanks, Kim. I might actually be getting rid of the entire thing myself. However, there are a number of Koi and a  few large fancy goldfish that I dearly love, so am thinking I need to buy a 55-75 gallon tank for inside the house, and then just…"
