Re: [The-Dallas-Aquaponics-Meetup-­Group] An urgent request to the aquaponic community - I see. The videos featured people growing greens for their own consumption I believe. Aquaponics  is on a much smaller scale than most ponds & I'd be worried about eating the food. Sounds like a great system though for feeding your Tim Feb 3, 2014 9:18 PM

Re: [The-Dallas-Aquaponics-Meetup-­Group] An urgent request to the aquaponic community - Warm-blooded animal manure is much more dangerous than cold-blooded fish manure. Aren't you worried about bacterial contamination? On Mon, Feb 3, 2014 at 4:18 PM, Lizab Tim Feb 3, 2014 5:42 PM

Re: [The-Dallas-Aquaponics-Meetup-­Group] An urgent request to the aquaponic community - Mostly, cold blooded animals are used because of the risk of warm blooded parasites and bacteria making humans, cows, etc sick. A good suggestion that someone had for me though was to heat the water, like in a solar filte James F. Feb 2, 2014 7:40 PM

Discovery Gardens Sale - I don't know how many of you food producers are into butterflies but these plants will draw and keep the beneficial insects around that eat the pests who destroy all your hard work. This strategy sure beats spraying harsh chemicals Tim Apr 4, 2013 10:19 AM
