System update

This year promises to be a great year for my system.  My system has been up and running for 11 months now.  I am not checking my system like I have in the past.  Last week my system had trace amounts of ammonia and Nitrites.  My Nitrates were sitting between 20-40.  PH was good.  I recently added another outlet to my fish tank.  The second outlet allows my to run a higher volume of water through the tank.  It was necessary because saw a fungus growing on some of my goldfish.

Cool your Greenhouse with Enthalpy: Part 1

Well, I had a revelation this week.

On Sunday I got heat exhaustion from gardening all weekend.  Laid out in bed all day Monday, I realized something profound.

It's not cold out anymore!  

Flowers are in full bloom; spinach is bolting; my greenhouse hit 100 last week with the fan running; and the water in my aquaponics threatens to break…

A debriefing of my time spent in Kenya

Hey guys! I am a Christian missionary and I recently got back from a month long missions trip that I took to Kenya Africa with a non profit I am a part of called YWAM (youth with a mission). I am the head of the farm here at our base in Los Angeles, and we build aquaponics systems to help end starvation and inspire hope and vision into the people of poverty stricken nations. Here is a blog post about the trip I just got back from. Please check it out.…

I am also new, I am worry about raising fish

I live in a small caribbean island, and there are limitations on species that are not local , can i just focus in the vegetable production and not in the raise of fishes? In that escenario, does it really matter the type of fish, can I use just local fishes or do they need specific characteristics in order to get the benefits of aquaponics (less watter, less energy, higher growth rates)? Help me please!
