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..

    Sweet potato leaves have around 30% protein. Would this be a good alternative/addition to duckweed for Tilapia?

    I feed my silvers sweet potato leaves. I just half bury one in a pot near the pool. The vine climbs up a couple of cables. I use the leaves in the kitchen and throw them to the fish. You can also take slips for the garden.
