I noticed your comment on females turning pink. I recently raised water temp from 72-74 degrees to 86-88 degrees. And yes almost immediately I saw the females taking on a pinkish look in around the head and gill area.
Thank you for the kind words. Myself I'm by no means a pro, heck I just got into this a few months ago with the idea of theres got to be a better way of gardening besides pulling weeds for hours on end and rototilling.
Then I thought heck, make it portable and solar powered as well, its not exactly what I wanted but I truly enjoy this, unfortunately for me in the midwest there is no-one near me that does this.
1 advantage I do have which I am willing to share with everyone is my HVAC , mechanical and electrical background which I hope will contribute to the overall cause.
Thank you for your support. I could only wish everything I touched turned green but I do have lots of experience/ education at the school of hard knocks that teaches me what not to do in the future. I kinda skimmed through your site. Good work. Lets get this industry rolling off to a good start with honor and pride.
Hello there again my friend. I just had to tell you, I have bees! Finally after waiting and waiting I have some. They started popping up 2 days ago and it's the fuzzy ones, the honey bees. I have seen at least 10 of them, lol. Before all I had was the one's with no hair, I think yellow jackets. I do have a group of bumble bees under my deck tht have always been there. I read to put out a dish with rocks and frsh water everyday to make them happy. I want them happy because I got stung up my shorts a couple years ago and it burns, lol. Hope every thing is great with you and yours. peace love
