"It's hard to see but the big Shubunkin is about 6 - 8 inches long.  Beautiful tail.  I like these fish because they are very hardy, beautiful, and will handle ph fluctuations which can happen in a 20 gallon tank."

"We read a comment that you made to Jeff G. about fish for his aquaponics system and you mentioned getting 70 lbs of tomatoes. Are your barrel and fish tank in a greenhouse? We are having trouble getting more than a couple tomatoes."

Using Black worms

I have a dirty sump system so cleaning fish waste is a monthly chore.  I pump out of the sump into a media bed.  No problems with this.  I got the black worms to eat the fish waste and be a food source for my blue gil and cat fish.  I haven't added them in as I thought I would ask someone knowledgeable about this first.  One concern is clogging the pump.  I'm told they will stay on the bottom so I've put my pump in a shallow bowl where water can flow over but is still about 1/5 " deep.Next…See More

Linda Logan replied to Jeremy Cook's discussion PH too high! in the group Northwest Aquaponics
"Check that your media source doesn't have limestone as this will never let the pH get where you want it.  As Maureen said most systems will tend to more acidic so there is something fundamental in your system holding the pH high."

Linda, do you have the email address for your friends whose farm we visited before the meeting? Could you send it to me in a private message? Some of the photos I took turned out well and I'd like to share them with them (could you tell me their names again too?). They were so great and I enjoyed seeing all their happy animals. I'm want to put the pictures up on my blog, but I'd like to get the woman's permission to put photos of her up (I think the photos of the animals are ok for now!).

Thanks!

It would be great to make a plan to go distillery tasting! I would also love to come over some time and I am sure Jeremy would be into either plan. Don't worry about the money! I am grateful that I could go along with you. I had a lot of fun. I am also going to go to the InFarmation talk at the Holocene next Tuesday from 5:30-8:30. (http://www.friendsoffamilyfarmers.org/?page_id=601) Maybe you'd like to go to that also. Either way- the distillery is in our future!

Hi Linda,

So great to meet you! I had a wonderful time touring farms with you. Let me know if you ever need a hand with your bees or other aspects of your farm!

Hi!  What part of Portland do you live?  I live in N.E. just off Alberta on 19th.  Just going from hydroponic to aquaponic.  Just got a 60 gal aquarium today and will hook it up to the existing gutter systems.  We are only in town here during the week and leave Friday afternoon to go out to our cabin on the White Salmon River, in Wa. for the week ends. 

It's amazing how fast this whole reality of aquaponics is happening, isn't it?
