A DREAM COME TRUE!
Tilapia Vita Farms became a reality on October, 2010
This is my 32 ft. by 16 ft. 15000 gallon bio filter!
If you look carefully you will spot Mr. Meow!
This "cold-frame" is the same width as the one in Orlando, just a bit shorter in length.
The hatchery is now 88 ft. long by 24 ft. wide
The perfect spot! No trees were cut, these are just pieces of a dead tree we had to remove.
Here's my first video!
Just a spur-of-the-moment video I shot when I noticed 4 Blue females carrying eggs in one tank.
It's been a while since I used a video camera so it's not quite my best.
Enough to totally clean the water biologically plus feed the fish!

A bit to the east of the local fish-loving wildlife I found...
Some where out there, outside of Kim's "don't even think about thinking about it" zone...
I wanted a big-humongous-super-mega-giant "liver" (bio filter) to process all the fish waste.
That's Mrs. Meow and her son Mini-meow.
And this is their big-humongous-super-mega-giant litterbox!
North of this crazy kamikaze rooster's territory...
Soon I will post a video of the finished greenhouse. This is just the first part of it.
"Just a bit" of ground leveling was required.
I call it her "Playpen"
Every thing here was designed by her! I just supervised the construction.
But wait! who's playpen is that in the background?
Here is how that went:
Kim's new and improved "Lilli pad" for her Lotus and the Mosquito fish
Even under construction, the show had to go on!
Now we're getting somewhere!
And A LOT of fill dirt!
A little more ground leveling
A LOT more leveling!
The saga continues!
Mr. and Mrs. Meow as well as Mini didn't mind giving up their
big-humongous-super-mega-giant litter box
On Nov, 2013 I finally finished moving the Orlando greenhouse to Brooksville
Now the rest of the story.
