"@Randy currently using some fish food. I've also been rinsing my hands in the tank when digging and planting the rest of my garden. @John I'm pretty sure I was taking your queue on using the lava rocks over the river rocks. :D I have an…"

"Lava rock and cycling a new system question. I've added water from another system, about 50% (I have a brand new chlorine filter - inline). It's been about 2 weeks running - flood and drain, about 200 gallons. What is the average time that…"

"I picked up a 450w heater from Ocean Floor yesterday with a 180g threshold. Added more warm water last night. Had 2 more dead this morning. I'm sure it is just fallout from when they were all swimming upside down. The rest of these guys look a…"

"@John I was right at about 50. Went out this morning, there was one dead.  @Kim I changed out a ton of water and added hot water throughout the day yesterday. Seemed to work as they were all moving around upright last night. I have to repeat…"

"Argh! My fish are not doing so well. I'm off to try to slowly bring the temperature up. I have a bunch that are upside down on the bottom, fins still slightly moving. Hoping I can save them or we're having fish tacos. Solar heater…"

"@Robert and John Thanks. I'm headed for the Depot now. I think I am going to go the route of the blue connectors you mentioned John. The pump, I may have to hit harbor freight this afternoon if my current ones do not work. Thanks! "

"@John Ha! I figured I'd be doing some head scratching at the Depot for this one :D Looks like I have some work to do this weekend.  I'll try to do something like this: 1/2" to 3/4" headers(4' long) with T connectors…"

"@John Thanks for the write up. I follow your math :). I was expecting more from the bottleneck out in the pressure department. So, with this said, waht is the easiest way tos connect all of these parallel tubes? Trying to think, T joints... But then…"

"Hey Matt, I was hoping to keep this on the least amount of build time and least amount of real estate used. If you have one hose out and one hose in, aren't you using the same amount of pressure to flow water through the heating tubes?"

Bob Wohl commented on David Schwinghamer's group Arizona Aquaponics
"Hi All! I built a small solar heater and I'm looking for a cheap pump for it. I'm using 100' of 1/2" poly tubing in the usual coiled fashion. My current pumps, strongest being a 7' max fountain pump, are not strong enough…"

Bob Wohl replied to Robert Rowe's discussion No dig potatoes in the group Arizona Aquaponics
"I have done potatoes in a bucket here but never successfully. They always tend to just die... This however would be worth a try as long as we have the proper planting/start dates. "

Bob Wohl commented on David Schwinghamer's group Arizona Aquaponics
" Lots of success here. 2 tomato plants, 4 bell pepper plants, 1 armenian plant, 2 cantalope plants, and a pickling cuc plant. Thats just in one grow bed! All my dirt grow beds are going off right now to. :)"

"Hi all! I'm in the market for a new inline declorinating water filter. Where can I find one in Phoenix? I've checked Home Depot and they didn't cary them. Thanks in advance!"

"The solid waste collecting on the bottom of my tank had me a bit worried. So I installed a swirl filter Sunday and I'm kind of stoked on it. Simple technology! Do most of you use swirl filters? Also, where is the best/fastest place to…"
