"Pretty cool Phil. I do however want to be a fly on the wall when that sharp steel cuts a nick in the wire and not only will he have smoked bacon but his eyes will light up and his hair will stand on end as well when he goes to open it. Just…"
Hi again all - I hope I'm posting this question in the correct area.. 1) What is the best way to manage algae growth?? I've tried to block out of much sunlight as possible from the tank, but there will always be SOME light hitting the tank.. I'm noticing a pretty quick rate of algae build-up happening in my tank since fish are in. I also understand algae can cause an oxygen problem for fish.. not so much when the algae is living, but rather when it DIES.. any input would be…See More
"Vlad - the NFT snake is fed from the SUMP - meaning the water has already drained through the grow-beds and is returned to the sump - the sump pump originally pumped water ONLY into the fishtank, however I added a splitter with valves, and now the…"

When I test for Nitrates its usually around 0 so I'm wondering if I need to add more fish or if the nitrates will increase as the fish…See More
"@sunset, In my humble opinion the bottom of the cage and the top need support to keep the liner from expanding the cage and distorting it. Call me a fanatic but I don't want a bloated looking tank. I replace the 2 supports at the top after the…"
"My thoughts on the smoker is it belongs in a separate group concerning how to make use of the fish after you've grown them. Like tips for preserving....smoking salting, freezing, canning etc. Plus recipes or whatever.
I figure if a portion of…"
"Of course it is for smoking appropriate AP fish; you do eventually eat the trout or tilapia don't you? Add more chips? Simply remove the lid, remove the rack and add the chips. Loosing smoke is not a problem when you are…"
"It's a thought but you would loose a lot of energy in the conversion. What I did is: On my pump there is a "T" fitting at the output of my pump used to hook up a frog that was suppose to sit beside the pond and spit water…"
