Tilapia Farm

The 300 litre aquarium is running well. The water is running clear with the filter I built last weekend ( the bucket you see on the left)
I keep the water at a constant 29 degrees celcius with a 200 watt thermostat. I keep adding fresh duckweed. Fish eat it at quite a rate.

Tilapia Hatchery

This fish died when it jumped out of the new glass aquarium tank. Today I sexed the fish as best I could and left what I hope to be 1 male and 5 females in the aquarium tank. I returned 15 others back outside to the 1 kl tank.

DIY Timber

Lynn and Daryl, a mother and son team run this DIY timber recycling operation on old cape road. Saves the forests, creates jobs and recycles, while at the same time providing me with cheap timber for my backyard projects. Great.

The Hot House complete in 2011. With hindsight the timber boards warp quite badly wont use them again.
