"Just to set the record straight:
I had tilapia fatalities below 50 degrees! not at 55 degrees. More like 48 degrees at the surface if were are trying to have full disclosure.
Also, the Hybrids I purchased because they were reportedly more…"
"Can you please tell me why my bacterial colony is thriving even though I have been depriving them of their one and only source of carbon? I even recently added 25 tilapia fry to my system at home a few weeks back (pH is also exclusively adjusted…"
"I think your missing the fact that you need a bare min of carbonate to maintain your bacteria and your plants. all life forms on earth need carbonate to make new cells why on earth would you intentionally starve them of this it makes literally no…"
"aquaponics is a closed system so unless it was introduced by a reptile or a bird which niether are normally in a system then i would fair to guess he got sick from other food he ate that day. I almost never wash anything from my systems and have…"

I checked my wateryesterday and PH, Ammonia were fine but the nitrate level was the highest I have ever seen it withthe API test kit. I mean it was dark red like blood. Can that kill plants?

"I'm having a similar problem. I switched the fingerlings from the crumble to the second size pellets they haven't taken to the new food very well even after a week or so. When I go to feed them again in the afternoon I find a lot of…"
The truth is you don't make any money growing vegetables. To make money you have to sell the vegetables.
