Since China is 70% of the global aquaculture production, the selection of fishes is simply amazing. Getting small quantity from them is however not easy. Most of the hatcheries ask for at least 5,000 fingerlings before they would even consider deliver. I had to visit one in person in Guangzhou to talk them into shipping me "small" quantity of fingering. I…Continue

I went back to Lowes in a pick-up to buy the second load of gravel, “a thousand pounds”, but this time I would need to unload it by myself. I had the bright idea to unload it by the bucketful into a rolling trash can. You know the heaver duty kind that the city services use. The trash can held most of the gravel and I was able to pull the bag and pallet off the truck with a little help. After that I had trouble…
The trash can full of gravel was sitting just a little lopsided,…Continue
This might start out like the reading of a hot dirty novel but hear me out: Aquaponices How My Garden Grows:
It’s addictive and all consuming! The sweet smell of blossoms with all their color, green fruit, boldly firm, promises of juicy sweetness and then even splashing water!
It was and is overwhelming to say the least. I am hooked!
Now, I had to sell the idea to my other half. I was so excited; I wouldn’t hide my enthusiasm or wait any…Continue

Just a couple weeks ago we experienced a somewhat harsh freeze. I know that most people’s reaction to that is ” a freeze, but aren’t you in Florida?!” We are, however our north central location often sees the thermometer dipping into freezing temps overnight and as I often like to joke, we are nestled in the mountains of Florida after all, or as close as it gets at 220ft above sea level. I seriously doubt that it really contributes to our colder temps when in all likelihood our little…Continue

March 15th was the completion of my new outdoor aquaponic garden consisting of a 10' long dual metal rain gutter system that flows into an existing filter box then onto a nft tube then back into the fish tank. I covered it with 40% shade cloth I got at Amazon for a steal.…
I am just now starting to dive into the aquaponic design and operation of my system, finding out about ph and concrete tanks. Here is an interesting site that enplanes RH and PH in rain water here in the USA.
I am starting to understand that i need to line my tanks with a liner, check ph in water supply(well water) and check ph in fish tanks. Rain…Continue
the tanks in the center i saved for aquaponics , Good Lord willing we will start the aquaponic system up this year. the shade you see here was taken down last year because of high winds, so I built a new and improved one and my thinking since we have to shade our system anyway i could install the aquaponic above the garywater system. I am sure I will have to add shade cloth over the entire system. . Our web sight is…Continue
