Finally built the siphons, although still have no electronics in place. The CPU designed to give us 2 hours of extra energy if we have a power cut is also here – plugged in an awaiting disaster :). Finally we’ve ordered some black soldier fly larvea which we await with anticipation – we hope to get the grubs growing before our lovely fish are installed sometime in the near future…

It’s great that you’re culturing BSFL for feed

Where do youmgetnyour larvae?
Or should i say ‘where do you get your larvae?’!
really interested in your project! I too am running an experimental Aquaponics setup just ‘over the bridge’ in S. Wales…….am currently on a mission to get our BSF to breed-have you had any luck??
sorry not to reply sooner! for experiments i’d been ordering from:
Oh I experimented with different sized flying tents – I used a non-ddt impregnated mosquito netting to make a larger flying space – that helped? I did find it hard to get the blighters breeding though! one round just wouldn’t ‘get down to it’ – but the bigger space worked.
