I must have missed the reply notification. :think:

Habaneros are good, a little mild to start then they kick in. The filter is on the outflow from the sump and is the return to the tank.

I did do a video but forgot to upload it here when I did it. The amount of green in the system is more than in this video. Tomatoes are starting to ripen a lot more and grabbed a few dozen red ones yesterday.




Indoor system is down. I need to figure out a replacement for the growbed. I was thinking thin plywood and then doing fiberglass, but have not done anything. I have basil and another hobanero in the indoor system and just been giving water from the tank by cup right now. The small system I am running at the local hackerspace is still running and now is growing catnip for one of our members that works for a cat rescue.

Old view and current view of the system. Tomato vines covering the entire growbed and working their way out around everything. I dint care much on trying to train or pull suckers.

tagging along... looks like you've had a rough AP start but seems like it's all coming together this year. Did you end up with more catfish in the system this year? I am just starting my first cats to try and see how they do.

I think there is 12 catfish left in the system. The water is still very badly tinted and can't see the bottom.

This is the first year having catfish last this long. I don't know what I will do this winter for the system. I could harvest, but they are not large enough to make a meal or even worth cleaning.

I think I will pull the tomatoes out this weekend. Temps are dropping into the low 4-5 at night and severely halted production on tomatoes and peppers. May just be time to harvest what I can before first frost and try to fatten up the fish.

Latest haul from the tomatoes a few days ago. In ounces sorry. (1157g)

I pulled everything Friday. I saved the seeds out of the ripe hobeneros. Gloves did not help as it has been 3 days and still have burning hands. Green/orange ones are going to be given away at work and the green are going to be deseeded and frozen like the orange.
