How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately.I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on this email( firstname.lastname@example.org ) for the full details, Have a nice day
It's been such a long time since I've logged in, but I do thank-you for taking the time to respond to my post. I got really discouraged after all the bugs showed up on my lettuce and I didn't know what to do. But I do plan to try again this spring :)
What does PPT translate to. How many pounds per gallon or kgs per liters of salt?
In desperation I put in 500ml of 10 ppm of Colodial silver. The total water in fish tank and resevoir is 660 gallons. I had 100 Tilapia fry in this system and think I have about 70 now. All the veggies appear to be doing well at present especially the tomatoes.
I humanure too! Love brother Jenkins' book. I've written some blogs on that myself. I'm new to aquaponics so I'm going to have to find a new use for my compost. I'm thinking fruit trees? At any rate, nice to meet you. Thanks for the comments on my question.
I started my system with 2 cow feed tubs about 20 gal ea.one grow bed and one fish tank. In 2 days I've added one 40 gal barrel for fish tank and a bath tub for a second grow bed. The original fish tank has now become my sump tank. 3 tomato and 1 flower are in the grow bed and I need more gravel to fill the bath tub. The bell syphons worked well from the start. It takes 6+ minutes to make one complete cycle. Am working to stretch this out a bit more. Been working on the system about a week and yes I am hooked, addicted, just can't get enough.
TC... thx 4 the add. I'm major new to aquaponics. I recently started a small DWC system, as I'm gathering as much information as I can. Any advice for a newbie starting in Michigan? Have a wonderful weekend!!
TCLynx, Im new to aquaponics. Ive been looking at everything i possibly can on the internet. It looks like every post i come across, you have commented on. So it is in my opinion that you are the person to ask advice. I live in Ohio and have 5 acres to deal with. I am starting my system with 5 IBC totes. In my barn. I think i can control the temp, but need help with my design. I want to have a full blown aquaponics set up in the summer, and a scaled back version in the winter. Help me please!
