COD Close up!

Janice's Cod arrived today. Big! Huge! These Cod started out smaller
than your little finger, weaned to pellets and look at 'em now!

Janice has been published through her articles on aquaponics and has done a
masterful job in raising Cod, usually a difficult fish species to wean & grow out in her backyard. Great job Janice.

Scouting around- preparing for COD!

Started out with 10,000l of rainwater (full tank). Filled T4 & T5
(1000 ea) & 500l in the sump. Hosed out the Lab & ARC areas. Dod a
water exchange on T6 & topped up A1, A2, A3, A4. Fed all fish &
removed rubbish from ARC.
Fired up the pumps & started filter & protein skimmer, all good!
About 5000l left in the tank. It may rain?

A scout is always 'well prepared'!
