Tilapia Vita Farms became a reality in October 2010
Somewhere out there, outside of Kim's "don't even think about thinking about it" zone...
North of this crazy kamikaze rooster's territory...
A bit to the east of the local fish-loving wildlife, I found...
The perfect spot! No trees were cut. These are just pieces of a dead tree we had to remove.
This "cold-frame" is the same width as the one in Orlando, just a bit shorter in length.
"Just a bit" of ground leveling was required.
Even under construction, the show had to go on!
Now we're getting somewhere!
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.
In Nov 2013, I finally finished moving the Orlando greenhouse to Brooksville.
The hatchery is now 88 ft. long by 24 ft. wide.
A little more ground leveling
And A LOT of fill dirt!
Now the rest of the story.
Kim's new and improved "Lilli pad" for her Lotus and the Mosquito fish
I call it her "Playpen."
Everything here was designed by her. It's a dream come true! I just supervised the construction.
But wait! who's playpen is that in the background?
Here is how that went:
I wanted a big-humongous-super-mega-giant "liver" (biofilter) to process all the fish waste.
A LOT more leveling!
That's Mrs. Meow and her son Mini-meow.
And this is their big-humongous-super-mega-giant litterbox!
This is my 32 ft. by 16 ft. 15000-gallon biofilter!
If you look carefully, you will spot Mr. Meow!
Enough to totally clean the water biologically, plus feed the fish!

Mr. and Mrs. Meow, as well as Mini, didn't mind giving up their
big-humongous-super-mega-giant litter box
As Aggie, the latest addition to the farm would say:
Th..Tha..That's all for now folks!
