The temperature of your pond water has a profound effect on the amount of dissolved oxygen available in the pond. The hotter the water the less oxygen it can hold, therefore cold water holds much more oxygen. Using a small bubbler, air pump or aerator adds enough oxygen for most size ponds in the winter. Most pond fish do not require a lot of oxygen in the winter because of hibernation.
Today was a fun day at Sunland Water Gardens! We got to harvest some of the great looking organic cucumbers from our Aquaponic system. It was so easy too. Our aquaponic system consists of a tank full of Talapia. We have about three dozen in a PT796- 250 gallon Laguna tank. The
What a great video about Aquaponics submitted by long time customer and friend Neal Franson. Neal really goes deep into his two tiered Aquaponics System. He constructed this from scratch.
Just love it when long time customers submit videos of Aquaponics System. If you have any videos you would like to submit, please tell us about them
Koi are equipped with rather large teeth at the back of their throat. They do not use them defensively or aggressively but rather to process any hard-to-chew food they come across at the pond bottom.
As the gill slits perforate the sides of the pharynx, along which the food passes, the delicate lamellac are protected by a series of stout bars called gill rakers. These lie
Aquaponics is the ideal answer to a fish farmer’s problem of disposing of nutrient rich water and a hydroponic grower's need for nutrient rich water. Essentially, aquaponics mimics every natural waterway on earth. It is used to grow food crops in a concentrated, yet sustainable manner. And the great thing is the less you do the more successful you will be. Although it is nature at it's best it is not rocket science like hydroponics.

We recommend planting all plants in pots rather than directly in the bottom of the pond. This aids in the maintenance by making the containers retrievable, thus making plant care and pond cleaning easier. All plants do best in at least 5 hours of direct sunlight each day for maximum growth
Fertilize free through out the growing season.
It is no secret that having a pond can bring tranquility to any area. What many people find surprising is that having their own pond filled with beautiful pond plants and Koi can have a very real impact on their health. Although stress is normal, too much of it can lead to health problems. It also interferes with leading a happy life. A water garden is
