"Brief reply from my phone. Leave it alone! There's no reason to add so much to your system. I have channel cats in an IBC and I rarely add anything but water and occasionally some maxcrop with iron. My GH is almost 300 and KH less than 20. Fish…"

David replied to Laurence Hutchinson's discussion Producing the natural food for the fish species.
"I agree and it is important. Worms and bugs of many sorts are included as they are scavengers. I'm sure Purina Aquamax 400 isn't on their normal menu, yet they get it everyday. "

David replied to LG Mushrooms's discussion Tilapia? Shipped? Oregon?
"I recommend tilapiasource.com. Especially if you want high quality with both male and female for breeding. A mixed shipment is about $.75 per fish, I think and shipping (overnight air) is about $75. I just received an order of 50 mixed fish for…"

"My catfish love red wiggler worms and earthworms. I raise worms in separate beds. I also plan to raise crickets, and I just read a thread on this forum about raising maggots for fish."

"My brother started his system in his little used spa. It worked great until he decided to go bigger. No need to change the plumbing unless you want to use a solids lift overflow (SLO) drain. That is my preference but depending on your growbed and…"

Christian Richards replied to Todd Sakai's discussion Is it ok to restrict flow from your pump with a ball valve?
"It really depends on your pump. Mag-drive pumps deal with this better than other pumps. You just have to be careful you don't burn out your motor by restricting that flow. An alternative is to split the line with a return to the sump and you…"
