Cecil Dale Baird replied to Ian Hawkins's discussion problems with hydroton?
"Glad I'm not interested in flood and drain media systems. One more reason to avoid them."

Cecil Dale Baird replied to Sylvia Bernstein's discussion What Feed are you using?
"I use Purina Mills Aquamax for the fish in my recirc systems, aquaponics, and ponds. It's a pretty good feed but if I had a choice I would go with Silver Cup or Zeiglers.  The main reason  I get Aquamax is it's availability at my…"

Cecil Dale Baird replied to Casey Haas's discussion UV Sterilizers in Aquaponics for balancing Redox?!?
"Actually it only kills bacteria in the water stream but not on surfaces where it lives which is the most important. UV is routinely used in straight aquaculture without any problems with the biofilter."

Cecil Dale Baird replied to Sunny Oettel's discussion Humanely Kill Tilapia for table
"Carbon Dioxide, regulator, air line, and a diffuser would be the most humane in my opinion. Puts them permanently to sleep."

Cecil Dale Baird replied to Blue Hiller's discussion Hardware cloth....toxic??
"Rob, I think it's more of a problem with acidic water vs. slightly basic. But not reason to take a chance of course."

Cecil Dale Baird replied to Mohamed almehairbi's discussion Aquaponics system layout ideas
"Mohammed, Can you tell me what program you used to create your graphics? I've been looking for something like that so I can share my systems."

Cecil Dale Baird replied to Mohamed almehairbi's discussion Aquaponics system layout ideas
"My aquaponics raft tank system is quite simple and works very well.  It consists of a circular fish tank with a center drain and pipe and external standpipe for the removal of settleable solids. Above the center drain (shower drain) in the fish…"

Cecil Dale Baird replied to Blue Hiller's discussion Hardware cloth....toxic??
"Only if it's galvanized. Not sure if it is. Plastic garden netting is cheap and easy to find. It comes in a large roll in Menards and you can stretch is tightly over a tank. Cut thin wall 1 inch PVC in in 1 inch sections and cut a slot in the…"

Cecil Dale Baird replied to Robert Kyle Gress's discussion bland tasteing veggies
"I've heard people say this about hydroponics too but I've never eaten a bland hydroponic tomato. I think it may be a rivalry thing."

Cecil Dale Baird replied to Bob Vento's discussion How do you get rid of algae in a DWC Raft System ?
"Keep the light out of your tanks by making your rafts a tight fit, and once your plants get going what little algae you have should have problems competing with the plants. At least that is the case for me now."

Cecil Dale Baird replied to Steven Tracy's discussion Where to buy large fish tanks?
"Yes shipping can cost more than that tanks in some cases. A real deal killer for me."

Cecil Dale Baird replied to Steven Tracy's discussion Where to buy large fish tanks?
"Makes sense Michael although I don't think 61 is that old. I'm just getting started at 55. Always been a late bloomer!"

Cecil Dale Baird replied to Steven Tracy's discussion Where to buy large fish tanks?
"It's call the Assman Corporation in Garrett, Indiana.  Sales rep is Michael Gamble. However I doubt it would be practical to ship them and they only come up now and then. You may be able to find a manufacturer not far from you that will…"
