  1. Hi again You could try contacting TCLynx http://aquaponicsnation.com/forums/profile/845-tclynx/ she haven't been on here fore some years so it might be easyer to contact her dierectly on her web site http://www.aquaponiclynx.com/?s=chelated+iron she runs a commercial "organic" AP operation in Florida. She use and sells the product in Q, and she is usually very helpfull IME cheers
  2. Hi Mikkel On online aquaculture recourses/courses I'w found this good http://www.aqualex.org/index.php/products-services/joomla-page-2/login-page-2 IMO hands on or practcal training at a fishfarm, RD facility or with a conservation group is of equal value (even more) to the technical/theoretical skills you can achive online or in a class. It all goes hand in hand I guess This doc/pdf have references (last pages) to the regulations on aquaculture in DK http://hvilested.dk/Dambrug/FarmingofFreshwaterRainbowTroutinDenmark.pdf Lett us know how you progress on the matter, and obstacles or problems to overcome, are just as interesting to learn/hear about as sucsess. Good luck ahead cheers edit to add another great online resource
  3. Hi again This might be a helpful link https://blog.brightagrotech.com/iron-in-aquaponics/ cheers
  4. Hi phri Neither is mine I agree local resources is often worth it's weight in gold and offcourse language is a key to understanding of the same value. Moses, there is a Malaysian siphon guru called Affnan, he has been in to aquaponics for years, and have a nice blog http://www.affnanaquaponics.com/ As far as I know/understand, Bahasa Melayu is closely related to Bahasa Indonesia, so Affnan might be a helpful resource to you ? And also this APN/HQ member/thread might have a sort of "local" value for you. cheers
  5. Hi again Moses You have to use known standards if you wan't serious answers to your Q's Either use the metric liter, US gallon = 3,78541178 litere, or Imperial gallon = 4.54609 litere, and inform wich it is. I suggest you read up in Garys Online Urban Aquaponics Manual http://www.urbanaquaponics.com.au/ I would get rid of the koi they are not suited to live (thrive) in such small aquarium/tank Also to look at more precice zises and readings/values/measures in general, EG: You say you have a pump that pumps 2000 liter/houer and a tank with 57 liter water so your pump is turning over the tank water 35 times/houer it should be more like, 1 to 2 times/houer. You say your Ph is 6.5-7ish, it's a huge difference between Ph 6.5 and Ph 7 (in particular in fast swings to the fish) I don't mean to disencoureage you but I fear you will fail fast unless you get the proportional numbers, volumes, zises, etc. in order. good luck cheers
  6. Hi Moses Welcome to APN/HQ 16 koi in how big a tank ? When ever you wash the filter, you are back to start on establishing nitrifying bacteria, so stop that like Toga said. cheers

  17. Hi Funny how one bad incident can lead to a positive result. I was of on a fishing trip 14 days ago, when I recived a text message from my wife, that a redfox chikenpen atack had woken her up at 0500 in the morning. By the time I came home on Sunday all 5 chikens where lost to the fox I saw the fox on the following Thuseday, so I decided to put out a bait and try to shoot it (season ends 15.April) After rigging the bait/light, I found one 2 inch branch on a birch, to be in the way of "the clear sight line" , so I decided to cut it off. An amazing amount of sap was just squartig out of the cut, so I got a bucket and a ziptie and started collecting it adhoch. The bucket(10litre) was full over night Next step collect & boil or more "simmer" reduce, reduce, reduce............................................... and after days of harwesting & reducing 50litres I now have aprox 0,5 litre (a pinte) of ready made RedFoxJuice More commonly known as Birch Syrup Really nice cheers
