Episode-58- TSP Rewind – Why I Switched to Aquaponics — 9 Comments

  1. I would enjoy rewind shows over the break. Some back to basics kind of shows you haven’t used in previous rewinds would be awesome!

  2. On the rewinds over break, i would actually vote no. Not that i don’t enjoy them, but I feel it would be to much of rewinds. Plus, it would be nice to have a break, think over the past year including lessons from TSP, and come into 2018 ready for the new year and to get back into learning about the gold nuggets of info that comes from TSP.

  3. Jack, if you produce rewinds over the holiday break, I will definitely listen to them.  The break gives me more time for yard & house work which is when I listen most. 

  4. I enjoy the updated commentary on the show that you add on the rewind shows.

    This original aquaponics show in April pushed me to launch a small 100 gallon system in my 6×8 TxPrepper greenhouse.  I killed a few dozen goldfish dialing it in then switched to tilapia. Haven’t lost a fish since.  I saw pics of David’s back yard at last years fall workshop and was blown away by the possibilities.  Any MSB member interested in aquaponics needs to go watch that presentation.

    The small greenhouse and a fish tank heater kept my fish warm through the recent freezing temps we had so I’m hoping they make it through to spring when I’ll be expanding.  For a 9-5r guy like me, Aquaponics is 5x less work than a back yard garden.  Start out just growing left over stuff from the grocery store and you’ll be hooked.

    if anyone in the Houston area needs some help getting going in Aquaponics,  I’d be happy to help.

  5. I listen to your shows mostly at work, so I would love some rewinds.

    I put a post on the FB Forum page, but if you go to the Lowe’s website and search 19251 (small) and 19252 (large) it will take you to “Dywall Mud Pans” also known as Jack’s concrete mixing trays.

    We, also, sell bulk heads (748559)  in the roughy plumbing department with the brass fittings usually.

    Hope this helps!

  6. Count me in on enjoying rewinds; like others, I listen while I work around the house or outdoors. Thanks!

  7. I vote no on the rewinds. Tale a break. Don’t worry about us, we can listen to old shows. Relax. Recharge. And start the new year refreshed. Merry Christmas!

  8. On the rewind shows: I will be on vacation too so I won’t have much time to listen during the Yule week.

  9. How many say tilapia could you grow in a 10 gal stock tank with this type of set up?  I seem to recall seeing something in the past that said 1 inch of fish per gallon of water but that would be the adult size of the fish correct?
