Commercial Bug

Thought I would update my status. I have the AP bug really bad. I have been consumed by AP since the first time I looked at a system online. I got excited and started immediately looking at a way to create an AP system in my yard. Well the more I…See More

Non feeder goldfish & worms

Hello-Has anybody found a source for non-feeder goldfish?  We keep losing our entire system of goldfish everytime we buy more goldfish from Petsmart.  We are also looking for local worms.See More

Curry Benoit replied to Chris's discussion Cycling
"I always kick a new system off using goldfish. They are cheap and easy to replace, and they make the same ammonia as every other fish. Depending on your water supply some of your fish will probably die. I used Youtube to find out everything I would…"
Curry Benoit replied to Zach's discussion My first Day With Plants

"Have you thought about non-venomous spiders like daddy long legs and others. According to National Geographic their Latin name in English means "aphid suckers " you might look into this as a possibility."
Steve Erickson replied to Brendan Van Epps's discussion Whitefly
"I hear you about it being frustrating. I've got either a whitefly or some sort of fungus gnat problem that I haven't been able to resolve. It is very frustrating. I am growing in a basement. I have tried applying beneficial nematodes as…"
