Aquamad ..

That is "awesome"!

I tried the tilapia in wheelie bin thing at school. Was a bit of a fizzer , cos they couldn't see them and it meant a walk to the farm to feed them ... so I relocated and set up a coulple of tanks in the main school site. Not such a problem now! Next year I will convert them to aquaponics as you have done!

Well done mate!

THanks mate...
I have 3 wheelie bins which have not been assigned a job YET - I was thinking of doing a wheelie bin thing. I thought I might cut a hole in half way down and turn it into a viewing port of sorts - just need the perspex :mrgreen:

I checked the plant growth today after not paying mutch attention to the system for the past 3 weeks - and found a bunch of beans on the bean plant! And also evidence that the other plants had been flowering - all that remains now are the forming seeds

Now AM, i'd kindly remind you that AP is not any good for things except for leafy greens and herbs. OK? Stop producing flowering things and beans and the like. hehehehehe ;)

What is the go with being able to eat the produce. One of the issues is what to do with the produce once its ready. Also, is it profit making or undercutting local businesses...

Fish being vertibrates, ed qld has strict rules on their use and treatment. I dont think we can eat them, and I dont think we can realease them either. They would have been had fed brom birth and never in the wild... could they survuve and what about possible risk of diesease into the wild.

Hey why not dissections for science. Earth worm, plant and fish dissections. Freeze the fish until you need them then.

Cant tell me thats too traumatic for kids, they do it on the weekends with their dads or mates!

Still, gotta find out. Ed qld has an ethics committee.

hmmmmm
