Hello Robert, My garden is in Altamonte Springs. I still have 3ppm nitrite and going down. How big are they?

I only have a little over 100gal. to work with. Please let me know what is up. I can pick them right up if there not to big.

Robert, I plan to be over in Orlando within the next two days and would like to drop by and take a look at your system and tilapia.  Will it be possible to meet up?  Thanks.

Thanks Robert...its just a small test system, 300 gallon tank, 50 tilapia, 32 cu ft media bed and 64 cu ft DWC trough plus red wiggler worms in the media and a greenhouse covering to keep out the rain this Summer.  I like your pictures as well...where are you located?

Thanks Robert, I will give them a call tomorrow.  If I can get my system cycled by next week I will give you a call about the fish.  Thanks.

Robert, sorry I did not get back to you sooner.  I never saw your response until this morning.  I may be looking for some tilapia next week if you still have them.  Do you know anyone looking for lettuce rafts?  I'm looking at Beaver Plastics out of Canada, product is very good and reasonably priced, but the shipping is outrageous.

Thank you for the advice of the PH. funny thing is I have 2 systems one the rocks are just in the bottom of the tank and the other one they are in a swirl filter. the one with them in the bottom always has a diffident Ph then last test. think there is just not enough water movement going by the corral... guess you learn something new everyday. moved the corral to the flowing aria and this evening its back up... maybe to fast lost a few. the others seam sluggish There is one Male doing much better then the others with the ph dropping then back up. He acts like all the others in the stable tank. Think he is getting promoted to a breeder no dinner plat for him. maybe get a more resilient tilapia.

Welcome Robert :-)

 

I am sure that you agree that Aquaponics is the fantastic way  to grow both fish and vegetables naturally. Love to see some pictures of your system.

 

God bless :-)
