1. The Practical Aquaponics discussion forum has been in operation for the last 5 years...

    We have enjoyed giving this service free of charge however ongoing increasing financial costs of running this service is making it increasingly difficult. Up until now we have resisted advertising as a means of a revenue stream to help run this forum but it has become inevitable that extra revenue is required to run this forum.

    We have introduced a donate button to help offset the cost of running this forum. It is completely voluntary, but if you would like to donate, all donations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Murray..

    Hello
    We have started our green House and the height we planned is 16 feet
    Here the temperature goes from 44 degrees centigrade in summer to 20 degrees in winter.
    Have planned for fiberglass sheets as the top portion and need advice on thickness of this top sheet.
    We are advised 2mm thickness
    What is the ideal thickness advised
    Have removed polycarbonate and poly white sheet for other reasons..
    Many thanks in advance
    Pramod

    You are best to go with the recommendation of local suppliers, they usually know what works best in your area, but 2mm would be fine for me here in Queensland.
