We are absolutely thrilled that our first system is now up and running. The fingerlings (baby tilapia) went into the system yesterday and are happily swimming around in their new home. So welcome Sushi, Victor, Nemo, and more. We have thirty fish to name, so send in your best suggestions!
The lettuce in our media bed is starting to perk up, and now that we have fish in the system providing fertilizer and nutrients they should grow much more quickly. Meanwhile, the first small sprouts from our lettuce and basil in the raft system are starting to peek through. They started as seeds embedded in rock wool.
It's been quite an exciting weekend so check out the gallery of pictures below! We'll also be keeping a close eye on the system as the baby fish (they're just 1" long now!) begin to grow and the plants quickly move up to harvest size. Keep checking back for more updates!
