Gene Parbst replied to Gene Parbst's discussion after aged humonia reaches 9+ ph does it continue to produce ammonia? in the group Fish-less Systems
"It will be interesting to see what the final ppm ammonia is.  I'm also wondering what the long term storage will do to the milled soybean flour in this humonia?  Maybe it will breakdown into other useful components?  I don't…"

Gene Parbst replied to Gene Parbst's discussion after aged humonia reaches 9+ ph does it continue to produce ammonia? in the group Fish-less Systems
"Urease aged humonia day 2: ammonia is still increasing, today it was 32 drops to get 4ppm ammonia in 64oz of water. This is the most interesting thing I've done in quite a while.  I'm 62 and feel like I'm back in school, actually…"

Nate Storey replied to Brian's discussion Vertical Lighting for Indoor ZipGrow SetUp in the group Cold Weather Aquaponics
"If you check out pictures of our light kit for Springs, that will give you an idea of what you can do with flourescent bulbs, if you need to use something else- like a more traditional light, note that they're easy to hang.  We use the…"

"Yeah, the LumiBar is super pricey- there are a few other LED options out there but they're not as user friendly.  It's actually why we use T5s so much- they're inexpensive and they work really well considering the price.…"

"This drawing shows the plumbing for my system except for the line from the sump to the FT. That one runs up and overhead to the FT. The water level is determined by the height of the standpipe in the FT or filter depending on where you want it. You…"

"This is the rough idea I am thinking of.  The one thing I'd like to able to figure out is how to only pump up to the fish tank, but make gravity work in my favor from the fish tank to the grown beds to flower water directly from the fish…"

"I only have 2 media beds that drain and they only have about 40 gallons of water each and even if I activate the 3rd bed as a media bed there will still be plenty of room in the sump. I only have it about 1/3 full now. The sump is in ground under…"
