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..

    I have some sort of nematodes on the tomatoe roots, just under where the water is pupmed on both grow beds. Is this normal? Is it harmful to fish and humans?

    Just did a little research and found out they are the larvae of the drain fly (Psychodidae).

    Nematodes are microscopic parasites that kill the slugs.

    Not all Nematodes are harmful, certainly not harmful to fish or humans. Some harm the plants. Sounds like you have the guys that are not good for the plants.
