Thank you joblow and Rob, funny you shouldn’t mention that the erection looks bigger from the inside,that’s exactly my wife’s feeling,much bigger from the inside....lol
Anywhooo we are getting there,more slowly than surely at the moment but it’s getting there,this afternoon we had the delivery of the boards to finish trough three,so another job put on the list. Tonight I sat and seeded five trays of cubes which with any luck should mean when trough three comes on line we should have baby plants ready to go in, or close to it,I have been putting them earlier than normal but needs must.
Tomorrow hopefully I can install power into the green house to tick another job from the list.

Another three,lettuce is Grand Rapids, not the prettiest form of lettuce but is tough and the recommended lettuce in Thailand,once these are done I will swap over to butterhead and green oak.

Last three, there had to be one of the fish, there always hungry,but there on reduced rations until my nitrate level comes down a bit. The last one is of my California reaper plants,iam really looking forward to these producing,these might get moved to a Dutch Bucket system iam adding,but that depends on delivery times and things.
I still look at how much there is still to do with despair at times,but at least we have plants in and growing,it’s nice have the ability to check nutrient levels taking the guess work out of it is nice,let’s see what difference it makes to the final produce.
Hopefully this week I can get the seedling bench finished,then on to a misting system I want to install in the roof,not so much for temp control as for humidity control,I team it up with a smart switch so I can program and monitor from my iPad,since the greenhouse has been up I have been taking daily readings of temp and humidity,I didn’t realize just how low humidity was getting in the afternoon,hopefully I can smooth that out with the mister and sensors.
Finally this week should see the third trough finished or nearly finished,quite a few trays of celery have already been started so they might be able to go straight in.

All looking very good Andy :thumbright:

How high are your nitrate levels?, I got caught out with my filtration not copping and that shot the ammonia up to 2.0ppm, with water changes and building new RFF & MBBF's I dropped it 1.0ppm pretty quickly but have struggled to get it below 0.50ppm since without daily water changes.

I've backed off the feeding and even stopped feeding at times but I can't get below 0.50ppm except for the odd day here and there.

I added 70 litres of new K1 bio media to the 50 litres I had making a total of 120 litres but the new bio media hasn't colonised yet, I'll be fine when it does and with the current temperatures we're having I think the fish will be harvested before the media colonises.

I am off the scale 100+ and it’s refusing to come down even with the fish on a third of what they could eat,I am seeing it in the Tomato’s as there huge in size,there still young with the first flowers just showing so I want it to come down soon. The third trough is still to come on line which will help a lot to reducing the level and iam adding Dutch buckets for cucumbers and peppers so they to will help when there up and running.
I have bit the bullet and gone for K1 media,the thing is I have had to import it from China and minimum quantity was 1m3 so I have a lot of media,saying that the plan is to try to sell it to offset the cost,K1 in Thailand is ridiculous in price,so there should be a market if I can advertise it correctly. I am changing the bottle caps for K1 in my static up flow,not because they don’t work,but I have found there limitation in my scenario as in there a problem to clean effectively. Before with my light stocking and the up flow split between three barrels it was no problem,this time around there’s the one barrel and filled with 100litres of caps,it filters very well but cleaning is a chore. I needed K1 for my MT tank so with the order I had to make it makes sense to swap it over,I am hoping a airline added to the barrel will mean easier cleaning.

I bought my strawberry plants locally grown in soil,so adding them to the tubes involved washing the roots clean before placing them in there pots and then into the tubes,this was done on Saturday,we have our first flower already.... :thumbright:
I have 70 plants so I am hoping for a nice long run of fruit.

The Bio Media I bought was quite cheap compared to K1 and it is sold in smaller quantities that was why I chose it over the K1, I bought a 100L box for $150 AUD plus shipping.
https://freshbydesign.com.au/aquaponic- ... bio-media/

It has more surface area than the K1 and is quite solid, I was bit worried about buying rubbish but no it's OK and I'm very impressed with it.

It's taking a long time to colonise, I have some bacteria that will make it colonise quicker but I was worried about an ammonia spike so I haven't used it. I wasn't sure if I'd get a spike or not with the system already cycled but it wasn't worth the risk.

How are your fish handling the 100+ and how long can they survive at that level? The plants certainly aren't suffering that's for sure.

I've got temperature problems here with my Trout, yesterday I scraped through.

Today it was 22.5c at 1:00am and this morning it was 20:6c at 7:20am, 21:1c at noon and 22.8c at 5:pm.

I emptied the grow beds into the sump and drained off 220 litres from the RFF and that dropped the fish tank temp down to 22.2c, tonight is going to be quite a hot night and it will be a struggle to keep them cool tonight.

That’s identical to what I have bought,this model is 11 x 7 mm and I paid $68 per 100 litres and that is with shipping,I am hoping as it’s for aquaculture use it should be zero duty at customs. The problem comes with the minimum order size of 1m3 but I am hoping to sell on what I don’t use.
Tilapia are pretty tough old fish I don’t think that level of nitrate will worry them and hopefully that level should be dropping,it’s a bit self inflicted as I fed a bit heavy early on so I am having to deal with the high nitrates still the Toms are loving it at the moment.
Fingers crossed on your water temps and your trout,mine is a cool 24c down from 26c as the nights are getting cooler,day air temps still get into the low 30s but the shading over the fish tanks stops direct sunlight from striking them, it makes working in the greenhouse a bit on the hot side though.
