So what are you doing with the bus now? Is it actually being driven for some purposes or is it more of a billboard that sits out where it can be seen?

We use "The BIG PINK Bus" to take all of our gear to the markets...Eventually we will have the top decked out for travelling around... I have converted it back from 66 seat to 11 seats (7 downstairs and 4 upstairs) will put little kitchen between the drivers seat and stairs and will put a laser cutter in the rear with all of our products ie mobile shop that is as long as we get our aquaponics setup automated....Never enough time lol :D

Hi all I have tested water quite often and it is sitting around the 7.6-7.8 mark in the after noon it does go to 8.8 bit of algae in the tanks if i read right does the algae die off in a couple of weeks ??

I've dropped some bacteria in the tanks 2 days ago Wed arvo.... Ammonia is 1.0 in FTanks and coming out at the GB overflow pipes at .5 ...... Nitrites are between .35 - .5 don't seem to have any nitrates yet?? mind you plant are growing...

Ive only lost 1 fish and that was the next day after putting them in not bad from 700 Jade's Hopefully Buce at Ausyfish through a couple extra in hehehe That was 2 weeks ago now ....they are eating 2-3 90mm end caps of 2mm pellets in the morning and 3-5 at night I feed til they stop the frenzy .....Does it sound too much?? havent weighed them yet

Sounds fine DDecker... P.S... the Jades will also eat just about any green leaf vegetable/plant/weed... if you drop a leaf in every now and then... they love lettuce...

yeah am growing lettuce and throw in some leaves every now and then also silverbeets....the wife loves the taste of the celery she reckons that they taste REAL.....My garlic is going great gunsjust put some potato's in with the galic and ginger bed( I'm putting less water in that bed so hopefuly they don't rot...

My Jade's are HUGH, I bought 700 and i hav had them in the one 5000ltr tank..We've just drained the one tank and got all the feeder fish out of it ( 2 black fish had babies just over 50 and we have at least another 5 Preggies, 2 more black ones and 3 orange ready to drop) we put them in the Raft GrowBed less current to hassle them and we took 200 Jades out and into feeders old tank also 5000ltrs.... When I brought them home we noticed a couple of Big Fellas in the bags at least 4-5 inches so 2 weeks later the BIGGEST is 7-8 inches almost ready to eat LOL :D
