My aquaponics book came in the mail today! A rare time my mailbox holds treasures anymore. Is it wrong that I’m disappointed it doesn’t have more pictures?
Ugh, I forget how hard it is to keep an aquarium. I wouldn’t say things are going super awesome, but I’ve never been prided for my patience.
|Fish: Take 2|
Since the results of the water test on Day 3, I was pretty pumped and bought 10 goldfish the next day. Well, they were all dead by Day 7. I’m scared to do another water test, but tomorrow is the day. I also impulse purchased 20 goldfish today. I think the water might be too warm. A few didn’t even make it out of the bag.
|Algae Blooms, Fish: Take1|
I didn’t believe one single video about algae blooms until it happened to me. It got so bad, I couldn’t see the bottom of the tank. A quick trip to the pet store to get some algae stuff and a few days later all is almost clear.
Algae bloom solution… no… algae bloom prevention is to add a shade cloth around the tank. Hopefully, this will help with the heat and light. I used weed blocker stuff and attached it with zip-ties.
