The corn is as high as an elephants eye and the tomatoes you need a step ladder to pick them
Note the pumpkin growing over the trellis

Hi from TX. Have a floating raft system up for about 6 mo. Pretty new to this. Did you day you had a book out? My system is a 150 gal rubbermaid tub from tractor supply and an 8x4 bed planted only with lettuce. I have about 30 3-4 inch goldfish. Lettuce growing very slowly and bolting. Some say I should add a media bed between float and tank as fish poop will adhere to roots. I have about 20 small baskets with pink gravel in panty hose under float panel to help grow bacteria. I also took plastic water caps and put them in a mesh bag for bacterial growth. I notice some people add nutrients to system. I've gotten a lot of bad and conflicting advice in the beginning so I wasted a lot of time, money and fish in the learning process. So what can I do to help my lettuce thrive and grow big heads? Do I need to redesign my system to add a media bed, a 3-panel filtration tank, or a seperate tank to add nutrients? Not sure what I can add to current system as the nutrients would go directly back into fish tank and maybe hurt the fish.

Any advice would be appeciated.

The way my system runs is the fish have a swirl filter and a bio filter
When you clean the swirl filter it goes to the wicking beds that stand alone [no water goes back to the fish] to this I can add any nutrients that I desire
