actually, Stephanie, i had a brain fog for a moment.  u raise Koi.  how does your system do in the winter?  do u need to stop feeding them?  did u tell me once your hardest time is the summer?  thx!

regarding Koi, wouldn't it be hard to do AP with Koi in the coldest of the winter since they stop eating when it gets too cold?  no eat, no poop. 

Jim, haven't tried to sprinklers, it's been so busy.  tomorrow!

Anyone in or near Maricopa?

@Arlene if you're looking for koi try phoenix tropical fish, or craigslist. Ocean floor is hit or miss, they have koi but they don't always look the best, at least the little ones. Also there is a phoenix koi rescue group on yahoo, there's maybe a post once a month on there but it's a good way to get large fish if you're comfortable with transporting them.

Sea 90 is awesome.. we only use a minute amount on occasion.. 1/4 tsp / gal in a foliar spray.. then eat some of the salt at dinner. if You add it directly to the tank water, go with 1tsp/10 gallons of water.

Okay, this question is for all you people that know everything.  What is your feelings about the sea-90 product, for the trace minerals in our AP systems?  If it is beneficial then how much should we add?

Arlene - don't use the methylene blue they talk about...not to be used with fish-for-food. A preferred product for shipping fish is SHIP Shape water conditioning product.
