  2. I'm sorry. I didn't ask any questions this time. It is just information. I will advise APN when I get that far. I left it.
  3. My clay ball beds stink in a closed room. They also attract gnats, ants and small spiders. These pests are so small they can fit thru the mosquito netting. Inside a green house with ventilation is not the same as a living room. Every window in our house has adequate netting. I may need to over pressure the house. They were in the house and the smell drove them out doors.
  4. Those grapes are calling me. They are one of my favorite foods. We have vineyards up north at the parents where we go picking when ever we are there. Fresh grapes off the vine are fantastic. Now I want to start some seeds. Watermelon is next up after some flower seeds my partner gave me. I will work On the acrylic double tank I talked about this week. Nice plant. Great vines. And using external nutrients. You are starting a garden of Eden.
  5. I will re-read the rules and give the fingers a slap. It is very rare that any post made by anyone will have the entire post full of broken rules. With your policy of hide and not tell who knows what rules were broken. Without that knowledge, what is keeping me form doing it again and again. Send me the post you just hid and mark up all the broken rules in red and I will learn and re-write it. It is like a parent that just says No! because I am your God. By hiding my post I'll never know. Show me the rule and how I broke it and you take the same on your posts. I am sure I could rephrase it with ease. It sometime reads that you want to add your own rules as you go. If I don't agree it is against the rules? If I write something you don't like or understand me, it is against the rules? Why don't you just turn on the mod stop for all posts to be Mod approved before shown. That way you could keep all the stuff to you. If you think I ask or type in stupid things, sobeit. This is a new field to me and I will be asking questions as they come up. As soon as the other current threads clear I will go back to my own thread and only post there. You can put me on your ignore list and none of my posts will be shown to you. You can have the rest of the place for yourself. Is that Ok? I have lost all confidence in what you write anyway. I can't even find one sand bed of yours nor anything that Mark has not given to you for free. If you had working acres of beds and thousands of fish all doing well then you would be worth the listen. A true mentor. I can't even find one yet and all you do is pick on what I ask. WHY? Your last post to me on the site was very professional. That is how you should be all the time. If you are truly the Guru of sand I would also expect to see the proof. Where is that hiding? Did someone hide all those posts on you? A pond that collapsed? Where's the beef dude? Where are the hundreds of photos of your success stories and the Great Gary sand farm? Ok, you just moved so Where is the plot layout for your property with a layout of the proposed new massive systems. Where do you sell all of the goods, Do you have a hundred restaurants knocking at your door wanting to buy any scrap you grow? Are you the go to guy for buying fish in your area. Do you know how to breed fish? I see you buying them so in my opinion you know nothing about fish. Do you grow everything, should say anything from your own seed? I do! Do people drive hours to get your produce? You seem to have all the room you need and all I have seen so far is a failed pond. Do I want you as a AP mentor? I don't know what even qualifies you as anything so far. Oh! I know, you know Mark. How can anyone trust a mentor that does not do it themselves. Gary, Where's the beef? If you show me a project where you planted a starter, And then snapped a photo that is proof of nothing. I can buy a starter (not here) and toss it out in the yard and it will grow. Where is the real practical working proof? If I had paid you, I would want my money back. really Gary, I would expect people to be running to your place to buy the best fish and produce in the entire area. You live on an island how hard could that be? Have you taken over all the sale of fish and produce yet? Do you even feed your own family? I guess the Island is in salt water, do you do salt water ponics. And yes there is such a thing. Growing all sorts of sub-culture items to feed the fish and sell also. Urchins, clams and seaweed are some. You like to down me for my area size yet I have more growing then you have and it is a fight for room everyday. If I had the room you have and the so called knowledge, I would be the AP king of that island in a year. Is that Guru on vacation? You have full time now to practice what you teach. Where are all of your personal studies and papers? Where are your results. Weight in, temps, weighed out. Your numbers, nutrient values at every step? not Marks or off the web. It is like going to a karate school and seeing a tenth degree black belt teacher and then learning later he never did any study or fighting himself. Just bought the belt or got it for free from a friend. And you told me to just do it and I will be amazed. I wish you would take your own advise and become that hands on Guru with the proof to back it up. So let me call you out here again. Where is the tons of AP Gary Beef? Not a starter you bought and stuck in the sand. My kid could do that... (Without seeing my Gary Guru with his own working farm and tons of data, I need to replace you. As Trump would say, "You're fired." Sorry you got let go twice in a month. American humor...) Sir Guru, step up or step to the side.. How can we trust you when you don't do it? I would expect thread called Garys Farm and if I read it I would be so impressed I would want your logo tattooed on me. I would paint "w w w Gary's Farm.com" on my SUV. Add you to every tweet. 3 billion people here would praise you. We would have a day of Gary once a year. Buying starters and fish fry are a novices approach. Master Gurus do it themselves.. In my little closet of a home I grow everything from seed and I am working on breeding 3 local fish and shrimp again. Your land is like a park compared to mine. Well ??? 30 projects in 30 days, Hey just do one you could be proud of. Enough said.... I'm a bad boy! And being funny or telling humor is Ok if it is funny. England humor is hard to laugh at most of the time. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Picture of our local bat fish they breed and sell here for food. The babies are sold to fish stores for aquariums. Good hard white meat. It is mostly a scavenger fish. They can get pretty large quickly. Then purge and eat. Yummy.
  6. We have a similar fish here and right now I have 3 babies in the baby tank. It looks like it is a bottom feeder and most of them are like eating cat fish. the 4 inch ones go for about 5 local bucks each. They must be out of season now. None at the stores. we eat them. we get 6 at a time. If you have any fish tanks where the fish lose a lot of scales try these fish in there. They should eat them so you don't have to clean them. If you cull and scale fish at any of your work shops try them as feed to these fish. Must be fresh and soft. Hold in water if moved a distance.
  7. reads like you got the sh!t off your liver also. What ever that means. Right up there with swinging kittens. Oh no, swinging a cat is a nautical term for a cat and nine tails whip. I guess kittens would be the smaller whips. My main room is 12 meters long by 4 meters wide by 3 meter tall. I have the room. I just don't want to turn it into a blue barrel hall as I have been told on other sites.
  8. I put you on my ignore list, maybe that will help. See if it really works. If it did why would this thread show?
  9. See Gary you just did it again, You missed the real question and went after the end poo. Selective reading again? This time I spelled it out more. My bad, I thought you were great enough that I didn't have to type all of that and you would understand the question as put forth. I guess not. Selective reading and whatever problem put you straight to the poo which is a secondary question. If you are an AP wizard you should be able to extrapolate details from AP questions with out tons of data. Does the GB need to be filled to max to work? Does one have to fill it to max saturation for it to work well. If not then ratios can be maxed out a lot more on the GB side of this. If a 200 liter GB that uses 60 liters and can run at 100% on 20 liters then why not only send it 20 and add 3 more beds. Spread the load That is why the follow up on the amount in weight of poo needed per bed. A big deal with these sand beds is the poo sitting on top. Have you ever weighed it? Has anyone? If a 200 liter tank needed a pound of it to work then 1 pesky gold fish is never going to take care of that. Can you see the question now. What is the bio load required for max production. I would need to scrape it off, rinse off the sand somehow and dry it out a second time then weigh it. And to top that VKN told us that sometime it all just goes a way. Microbe feast? So here we go again..............
  10. Gary, forget the poo for the moment. The ratios are what is in question. I used your numbers for saturation of 30 % and 5% retention. Are those the numbers or what are they? A GB of 100 L should be able to load 30 liters and hold 5% of the 30 or 5% of the 100. So it is either 1.5 liters or 5. If it retains 5% then the next fill should be 30-5% 28.5 liters or 25 liters. When I get the sand I will put it on the electronic scale. and find out as it cycles. Ok 2:1 because of equipment. 100 liters sand, 30 first fill. 200/30 = =6.7 fills Or 14 hours 30 is a bit over 10% out of the tank but if the drain is working a subset of water should get back to the tank prior to using all 30 % Should work by your numbers. It might be on the fish limit of water change over but they re your fish. Go for it. You missed the real question and went after the end poo. Does the GB need to be filled to max to work? Does one have o fill it to max saturation for it to work well. If not then ratios can be maxed out a lot more on the GB side of this. If a 200 liter GB that uses 60 liters and can run at 100% on 20 liters then why not only send it 20 and add 3 more beds. Spread the load That is why the follow up on the amount in weight of poo needed per bed. A big deal with these sand beds is the poo sitting on top. Have you ever weighed it? Has anyone?

I would need to scrape it off, rinse off the sand somehow and dry it out a second time then weigh it. And to top that VKN told us that sometime it all just goes a way. Microbe feast?
  11. Yeah Ok, why don't you repost my 5 or 6 reply posts that the crew deleted to protect you. They are as clean as yours are. No rule breaking. You are acting like some kind of AP god and dressing me down in the threads. When I reply my posts are deleted. Good for you to keep the crown shining. See gary, I don't care if you are the queen of England, you are just another person to me and you disrespect me when ever you want too. You are nobody to me. You say you want people to point things out and when they do you get in a hissy fit. When we respond, we get dressed down and deleted. All of my questions here have meaning to me and what we are doing/going to do. If you don't like them that is not my problem. They have merit form my point of view. You are just not willing to read them and understand them or ask the reason why. Let Mark stand up for himself. He is a big boy. Drop his coat tails and move on with your own work. Sand is nothing new, it is not an invention. People have been using it since time began. iavs is basically a septic system. Poo goes in, cleaner water comes out. If you want a name for your self, go the distance and figure out an entire new method. Then you will be a God again. Hey NASA did it, I'm sure you can up them one. I forget the name but it is something like mistponics, all electronic. If you cant understand my questions then ask. If you don't like what people ask, too bad. You are a member now, not God nor my father. You have all the mods circling you for protection. Yeah you got me peeed and I have only been here a month. What is the matter with you. Since you lost your job you are mean. Any bets this will be deleted also. If you come after me in a post expect I will reply +1 step up. With only a month in I got nothing to lose. You do. Gary, my home is very expensive and we bought it on the smaller legal side so we wont have a lot of work to do inside and can enjoy retirement for now 33 UDA a month. I presume you have no idea what real estate costs in Asia or what the laws are for condos with elevators. A one room apartment in Hong Kong can buy your island Our home is paid for and we like it. Is yours? If I am going to add AP to the inside it has to at least look nice and not stink. What problem do you have with that? You chose an island not me. You got laid off and not by me. If you want to be grumpy go kick the dog a few times. and what the heck does swinging kittens mean. Some sex group? And how do you know we had a litter of them? To anyone that is reading this, Gary has made it his job to hunt me in many posts and when I reply they disappear. So he can get away with what ever he wants to say and we have to bite out finger off. The mod crew is protecting him. I will most likely be terminated next. If so thanks for the time spent. He will move on to hunt other game. Everything was fine until I asked about NPK and the potential dangers of toxics. I really don't think anyone here has the answer. It is kept in the dark in labs so we wont know. If anyone has a sand setup, go juice a leaf and see what the numbers are. If they are low then the plant is restricting itself. If they are toxic someone needs to eat crow.
  12. Lets see 1: 2 100L FT 200 Gb. the GB is capable of 60 liters with ease at 30% Even pumping in 25% would not be enough to fill it once and the system would only need to be turned on 4 times a day. Yes/No? Does the GB need to be filled to max to work? If so the ratio has a problem. If not then why cant we go 1:10 or more? Is there a ratio of poo weight to GB area to work at its best?
  13. We, meaning the fish, plants and us.
  14. Hi, I didn't even know it was WED or even there was such a day. That's how locked out we are. The biggest challenge by far is drinking water getting polluted. It is reported here that over 90% is now unfit even for animals. So if I could snap my fingers, I would ask them to change that around. No one should ever have to buy water to live. You should be able to stick your face in any stream or river and drink up. It used to be that way.
  15. No I am not drinking the water. You can bet on that. We drink from the same source. The tap with an 8 stage filter partly RO. Thanks.
