Hi Pete

Nice to know there are others in Belize doing this.  Perhaps we can meet up some time in the future and talk aquaponics. 

I am also having problems with UV degradation of any type of plastic exposed to the sun.

Your Cob may be cracking because there is a little to much clay in your mix.  Hydralic lime is a great stabalizer in cob and you can get it in belize too.  Lots of little kilins when going trough the humming bird.
