Nice job Dr. Brooks!!!!
I'm definitely not feeding mine enough but all my system can stand right now. Making big changes in October to grow fish faster and more plants.
Harvested our first fish today from the "To Feed a Family" experiment. There darker fish appears to be a blue/nile hybrid (Oreochromis niloticus x O. aureus) and the lighter colored hybrid appear descended from the famous Rocky Mountain Whites of years gone by.
Statistics: Stocked May 27, 2014Avg wt: 55g 1.94 oz
Today's weight Darker fish 600g 1.32 lbs Last sampled 9/8/2014 510g 1.12 lbs
Lighter fish 515g 1.134 lbs
Not bad for about 17 weeks of growth but 681g (1.5 lbs) is preferable.
I can't stand that it's keeping us in the house. anyone else having a skeeter problems. I'm wondering if the skeeters are drawn to our AP system and I tend to think they are, or r they everywhere right now? Do any of u use mosquito fish and find it helpful to lessen the skeeters in the yard? the tank is topped off with a screen door so I'm not sure the fish would help-,maybe I'd have to leave the door up so that the skeeters can go close to the water? do the fish eat them when the mosquitos land on the water? thx!
Table grapes love Arizona heat and aquaponics!
I found a pretty useful thermometer for my outside aquaponics fish tank. This dual electronic thermometer keeps high and low temps for a week. Battery operated and intended for outdoor use, it lets me keep an eye on high and low temperatures. Reasonable price also helps.
Just an FYI
