  1. Hi again Nope the sand will not get in the pump if properly designed. You can find a lot of info on IAVS here http://aquaponicsnation.com/forums/search/?q=IAVS&sortby=relevancy&search_in=titles and in the download section here http://aquaponicsnation.com/forums/files/ cheers
  2. Hi Jbax1985 Welcome to APN/HQ It will work, you should however consider some sort of solids filtration, if that's your choice of method/media. Lava rock is sharp on your hands and hard to clean when time comes, but it does have a large SSA . Expanded clay might not give sufficient root support for larger plants. Unless you already bought the lava/clay media or have easy/cheap access to it, you might want to look at sand (IAVS) as a option. With IAVS you don't need solids filtration. cheers

  8. Hi Cecil I didn't know the tiger trout mortality, was higer. Is it as much as double that of brook & brown ? Would be cool if you ever found the time to write/illustrate a step by step article, on hatching and rearing trouts in a (your) diy ras. You'w made so many interesting posts/pics, on the matter here, IMO it would/could make a good guide/manual if they where all put together in a article cheers
  9. Hi Cecil How many is it ? cheers
  10. Hi lourde0927 Welcome to APN/HQ I deleted your link in the post above as it lead me to a commercial site and not to a article about strains. I spent some time on the site looking for such article, but couldn't fine any articles at all. So you might want to try again if you indeed have a link on the matter cheers
  11. Hi a99 Yes it's possible. Affnan lays out how to connect multiple grow beds to a common siphon here http://www.affnanaquaponics.com/search?q=siphon&updated-max=2010-05-18T17:11:00%2B08:00&max-results=20&start=3&by-date=false cheers edit to ad a better link http://www.affnanaquaponics.com/2009/06/aquaponics-multiple-growth-bed-system.html
  12. Hi all Just read this BBC "news article" and had a good laugh , odd how such ordinary or common habit around here, makes the news out there http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20190103-the-norwegian-art-of-the-packed-lunch?fbclid=IwAR0vE9N8OUUgAaO9uDPruPRXBU1zjfB4pR7cc_2p_KS78Y50zn7fyx_iSsI Pretty accurate article, however it is most common to also have a fruit or two, in our packed lunch. Many (in particular kids) would rather drink a glass of milk/juice, and/or have hot chocolate milk or hot Blackcurrant toddy(non alcoholic) on their thermos. cheers
  13. Hi markor58 I'w been looking thru all of these 16 videos made by beekeeper Frederick Dunn, seems to me that the flow hives are working perfectly well. I found all the videos worth watching enjoy cheers

  19. Hi umesh2063 Maybe try this as a starter FAO - Small-scale aquaponic food production As Toga said last you asked that Q. , there is a load of different type systems, so you really need to be a bit more specific in your request for guidance. cheers PS I moved your post from notices/ announcements, to a more proper heading
  20. Hi So almost 3 years down the road, I finally finished making the last product out of this hog. When cutting him down hanging from the Volvo front loader, I (we) had a minor incident . My friend helping out, was supposed to lift the hog a bit up, accidentally he lowered it in stead, so the front loader hit my head. I almost passed out and was left with a 2inch bleeding cut on the top of my scull. After a bit swear & curse, and a duct tape bandage on my head, there was tossed a few jokes, about the need for me to get a hardhat, as part of my butchering kit. I said I would make one out of the hogs scrotum, as it seemed to have the propper shape/form/size in every ones opinion. I carefully cut it of for that purpose in mind, stuck it in the freezer and forgot all about it. Then last summer it popped up again, so I found a diy instruction on how to preserve pig skin and got on with the job. Then I stuck it on the loft for drying up. When getting the Christmas lights down from the loft the other day, I found it again. Turned out great Perfect fit cheers
  21. Hi How do you guys make/cure bacon ? I resently butchered, 2 free land pigs, for a neighbour that dosent know how to, I recived half a pig+, in return for the job. I made used 1.5g nitritsalt, a mix of 10g sugar to 30g fine table salt (pr kg meat) and rubbed it in. Then I put it on top of a layer of rock sea salt , and finaly coverd it with the same, left it in for 2-3 days. After 2-3 days in salt. I put it in running water (trinkle) for 5-6 houres,(I cut of test tastes, untill I was happy with the salt) then I left it, hang to dry for 3 days. I chipped some juniper branches yesterday, dryed in my oven, over night, to day I'll cold smoke it. I'm not sure for how long ? I'm excited to taste the final product How do you guys do it ? cheers
