My fishes just love lettuce 😁

They go crazy nuts splashing  all over the side

Can you give some numbers..  How long you been doing this?  how many fish did you stock to tank? how many fish died so far? how many fish you eaten from tank?

Also..  what's in that bog filter?

That pipe with the elbow going down

To the gravel is the supply water coming from the pump which is located where tilapias pond is

The water is bwing pumped to the bottom of that 55gallon drum

With a upside down 30 gallon drum cut in half inside the 55 gallon drum

Heres what it looks like the bog filter

It goes down then it goes back up passing through  bioballs for good bacteria with air then gravel then back to the pond

How long i have been doing this  

Not that long about 8 months started  with a guppies on a small container 

Rules for the tilapia i think was 1 adult side of your palm requires 2feet by 2feet  square i think it was

I have 20 or so tilapia  in that tank and 2 catfish

I dont eat them their my pets👍😁

We had some goats here for a while..  and the wife and sons started to become too attached..  So I named all the goats..  We had Dinner, Black Adobo and the sisters Empinada and Enchilada..  and more,..  Just to be sure everyone knew the score.  Should have named one Curry..  been enjoying them ever since.

Ok heres an idea🤔

I want to use light on my pond for the night

Using 12v led

And ill be using a water dyna.o generator  to power the light

Since i have 24-7 pump running

Why not connect this generator on that pump to produce electricity😁😄

Water turbine that produce 12v enough to power led

several places to buy them here in Cebu..  but I thought you are in Hawaii?   If you want to buy IBC tote just head south from SM Seaside on SRP and keep eye on right side. ..  or on right side headed north on nat hwy through consolacion.
