Looks like I may get to plumb up the grow bed by the end of the weekend... Might even get some gravel & water into the system... Hoping the Yabbies will be moving in sometime next week...
Will be running the system with just the sump & grow bed for a week or so until the fish tank is made up in a few weeks time...
The Barrel system has stalled on the nutriment side as I just don't think the Yabbies Poop enough to keep the nutriment load up for the bacteria to process... Have been supplementing the system with water that had been removed due to the high Ammonia & Nitrites in the hope of keeping the bacteria going until the Yabbies get moved & some other Fish can be put in there...
Have a great one all...
