update

This last freezzzee in the north just killed my tomatoes that were still having blossoms’.  So I cut them out and getting ready to clean the tanks for the next batch.

High Amonia; Higher Hopes

A few weeks have gone by since my last post. I checked my ammonia and nitrate levels a week ago, and the results were dismal. I had 0ppm nitrate, and 6ppm ammonia. I resolved that my second fish was going to die, because dependent on the pH of my water (which I neglected to check) as low as .1 ppm can be lethal.

This started an obsession that has led me down a path of learning and applying all sorts of methods and ideas to use on my 1st aquaponics system.
