"What did your water tests say at the time? pH? What about Salt, did you by chance salt the system for any reason? If your neighbor was spraying pesticide, I'm very glad your fish are all ok but most pesticides don't kill plants. …"

something wierd happened?

Hi everyone-About 8 weeks ago, all of our plans started to die. the leaves started dying and drying out. There was no impact to the fish, in fact my husband thought they were growing faster. So we lost most of our lettuce, watercrest, beans and strawberries. We removed all of these plants, replaced them with new ones and everything seems to be back to normal. Does anyone know what would have caused this? I was bummed to have lost all of those plants, I dont understand why it happened.I wondered…See More

"Probably want to be careful and not get it into your water supply.  Melaluca (Tea Tree) Oil is a natural bactericide and fungicide.  It would probably help with the mildew, perhaps even some infections with fish, but if it got into your…"

Kureig K-cups as seed starter pots...

Hi FriendsYES- Im addicted to my K-cups! I opened one of the cups after use to discover that it has a paper filter in it with a hole through the bottom.  I used my Kureig machine to make 2 more holes on the bottom. Put some of my lava rocks from the grow bed, dropped some seeds in it, placed it in my growbed and whalla! One week later.....  I can feel a little less guilty about all the K-cups, now that I can repurpose them!   See More

M Waialeale Sarsona replied to Bob Vento's discussion How does rainwater affect the aquaponic system?
"We've had 3 days of storm, we are draining the fish tank because it's overflowing. Our leafy veggies look drenched! Looks like its wilting the leaves pretty badly. What can we do?"

"This is great news. Our fish are behaving the same way, we thought they were sick. I didn't know we could feed them romaine. What other types of veggies can we feed them?"

"Talapia overall is a good eating fish,mild and flakey. Once I tried a blind taste test against papio and 9 out of 10 like the Talapia better, I know wow! One thought: if you raise your own animals (fish) at least you know how they were raised and…"
