"Glad to hear the little fry are doing well John. The little guys guys swim between tanks through the siphon bridges and intermingle with the larger fish in my indoor system. They seem to co-habitate without issue there so I'm not…"
Something is not right with that thermostat. It has only been above 104 once this year. You will find that the water is pretty close to the average temperature

My Irises just got done blooming. They have full sun, whereas your are shaded so that may be the difference, only time will tell.

You can only add one thing and that is more food. Do you ever show nitrates? If not, pour on the food and see if that makes a difference. The only other things I can think of that may be limiting your production is pH…"
"making places for the fry to hide is a good idea Bob, but future batches need it to hide from this batch, not the folks, the adults could care less if there are fry swimming about, that is if they are well fed..."

I inherited a moss filled backyard pond, the remote AP turned it gin clear in 2 weeks. It's now much healthier for the inhabitants. I'm breeding and growing with Nile, Mozambique and Nile Hybrids. I sell tilapia fry and fingerlings; bulk fish food, worms, gammarus (scuds) and give plenty of free advise. If you want I'll build you a system too!

Hi Jim. I am interested in purchasing some of what your offering based on your posts. I think my AP system is cycled with the 15 goldfish i have and I am ready for tilapia. I would also be interested in buying fish food, scuds and worms. Thanks!
Hi Jim. this is what I thought the system might look like, but after reading what you had wrote earlier, I might even use bamboo as the top water feeder pipe to the towers its a lot stronger than poly-pipe and cheaper, I just cut it down out of the garden.
I apologize for not responding sooner, but I have moved to a new area where there is no space for my unit, thus it has been mothballed. The towers did not run long enough to test many different crops, but my gut feel was that with the dense media I had, the spacing was too close for long-growing crops.
