"an update on Bob Rowe:
I helped him home from rehab yesterday. He is in good spirits and looks well. He's not ready to run any races with those new knees but it does look promising as he was getting around pretty well…"
"I like the idea of another tour/get together
Yes, I have fish Sheri, send them my way, I'm happy to help. I think the brainstorming AP 202 class sounds like a great time.
@ George I can have the gammarus on Tuesday if that is okay for…"
"@ George, I can get gammarus if you want them, how many?
@ Dr. Brooks: I have tilapia fry, nile/blues and some pinkish hybrids tilapia fry, not sure what they are at this point.

"Hi Pat thanks for the update.
Are you brushing the walls to remove algae growth from the pool? Do you still use the skimmer?
I have been wondering if pool plaster was inert. Someone suggested I use it on my pond but I…"
"Hi Randy, sorry about that
You would put the radial filter between the sump and the fish tank in your system. You will want to engineer a solids lifting drain in the FT to get the solids off the bottom and into the filter. A…"
"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!"
I have successfully cycled systems in a few days by adding about a 100 gallons of water from my mature system. I know you have mature AP system too. Just swap the water between the two systems and dose it with ammonia and…"
I don't recall the fish sump count, sorry. So why do you think you have a dead fish? The sump is open enough to see if you have one and it would be obvious in the FT too. Post or send me a picture of the…"
I knew where to look for grape advice:
The general rule to pruning is to always cut in a location where growth will occur, whether the cut is next to a bud or another branch. Cutting a branch beyond where growth will…"

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. 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.
