"DR. can you share the presentation on google drive or send me a copy. I want to forward the presentation to my local school. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can't send it that's ok, I'm just to far away to see your…"
"Sewer check valves, yep I tried a 2 inch sewage check valve. They work for Glenn's "Aqua zen Burper" airlift. I'd like to see if I could use it for a flat aquaponics roof project down here in PR. Most of our homes are flat…"

"As I no longer grow tilapia anymore and only had luck really breeding many of them when I threw some into the larger duckweed tank, I don't consider myself an expert in tilapia breeding in any way. That said, I would expect the more…"
"Yes the 5 grown ones have been my breeders so far, 1 male 4 females. The 25 are what I call my Ferel Fish since they just appeared in the IBC with the big fish. I don't think they are big enough yet for breeding. Would the adult (1+ lbs. fish)…"
"I would recommend keeping the 5 full grown ones as your breeders if you happen to have 1 male and 4 female in there (however I'm not sure a 55 gallon tank is really big enough for that.)
The 55 gallon aquarium isn't big enough for 25…"
"I just moved them from a 55 gallon aquarium to the IBC. Figured there were 400 at most. I have about 25 2 1/2 to 3" fish that I'm going to move to the aquarium for breeding. Right now I have 2 330 IBC tanks with the tops used as GB.…"
"Jeff you won't be calling them much for long, 800 1" tilapia are WAY too many for an IBC tank. Tilapia should be eating very high protein feed at that size and to provide enough aeration and circulation to keep 800 of them alive in a…"
"Just put 800 1" Tilapia into an IBC covered with duckweed. It started disappearing immediately. Hopefully I salvaged enough to start over. I kept feeding them too so it's not like duckweed was all they had to eat. BTW what do you call a…"
"Maybe but it really depends on what factor is actually limiting your duckweed.
is it growing slower because of the amount of available nutrients? Too much water flow/splashing? Too little aeration? Or Too much or too little light?
"I just read your duckweed blog and I must say well done. I have a question. I think in a couple of months my fingerlings are going to outgrow my systems ability to filter the water. If I read your blog correctly I can use a duckweed tank/pond to…"
"you are not doing anything but spreading fear for no reason!! The worms do not live through the freezing of sushi meats or the pickling process and are cooked to death in the cooking temps. You are a germ-phobe. The health dept has set strict…"

I am a social-entrepreneur and I manage a bilingual Aquaponics network http://Aquaponics.club I'm a strong believer in permacultural practices. I started an aquaponics club in old Ramey Air Force Base Aguadilla PR.
Thank you for that suggestion. I actually tried that but it turns out all of the soda facilities near my home are just distributors. I did finally find a couple of totes and hope to be able to get started very soon.
