A couple weeks ago Wad and I moved this bed to his mature tank for four days. We used the tractor to carry the bed back and forth. Due to the unique construction only two short 4x4s were required to support it and protect the protrusion on the bottom during the move.
The bacteria it picked up in the four days it resided on Wad’s tank made the difference, I think, to this bed’s kickoff. His tank is at least 3 years old and has about a dozen fairly large fish and a well developed array of bacteria. My tank is fairly new and was cleaned out for the move to the new location.
The left roma type tomato plant has tomatoes already! How cool is that?
