    In creating a new system do I need to have a biofilter?
    In the hot summer months what do you do to keep your hoop house cooler? Do you remove the plastic sheeting or do you put some kind of a shade screen over it?

      If you are using a gravel bed you do not need any other filter, if you are using a raft system only then you must prefilter the water

      For keeping the GH cool, my GH faces north and south, I have doors on each end I keep open in the summer, also I use a 67% shade cloth. My GH stays about 2 to 4 degrees hotter then outside temp.
