Post subject:  Carolyn's System - Bendigo Vic

Carolyn Moved into a house where the previous tennants had a hydroponics system running in the Lean-to off the side of the shed.

After Removing most of the retired hydro setup, we installed a Courtyard System into the space.

Carolyn is going to do some modifications too the house when she gets time, Cleaning the roof, opening up the side etc, however the system is cycling away quickly and she is eager to get some fish in there.

Pics are off my HTC as i didnt take the camera, when i go back to do final tests i will take some pics with the nikon.

Hey Milne,

the Hydro setup had a heap of 90mm pipe with netpots in it, not sure what was growing.

Fishless Cycling is being done with Fish Emulsion, tests today after a week today were ammo .4 ites were through the roof and ates were around 10, i seeded the system with Clay that has been hooked up to my system at home.

Temp was 17 and PH 7.3

Thinking bout just putting 5-10 trout in there over the winter then stocking with silvers and cats when the spring comes....

That's not a bad way to start things off, just with a few fish for the first season, then crank it up a notch once it's started to mature...

How much does it cost to start a small system like this one?
