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..

    Greetings, I am a volunteer community development worker in a poor village with poor land in Indonesia's North Sulawesi. We have had success growing Moringa and Catfish. However, catfish pellets are expensive and we have to get them from 2 hours away. I am after catfish food recipes I can make up - preferably with moringa. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Phil

    Hi Philip,
    If you search the forum you may find some recipes. I can vaguely recall someone posting things like that.

    Hi Phil,

    You might also be able to supplement with worms and other live food - a lot of people have good success with Black Soldier Fly larvae.

    In this part of Indonesia (Sukabumi, West Java), the main diet of catfish is dead chicken (mortalities free from chicken farms) and fish guts (free from chicken slaughterhouses); no preparation needed, just throw them in the ponds and the catfish will take care of the rest.
