    Spirulina tastes awful. It's easier to buy the pills

    I miss my whiskey barrel water garden. I really didn't know what I was doing with it though. I had plants at inappropriate depths and a bunch of fish and everything was covered in green smut and smelled like a fart after a few months. It was a neat idea, anyway.

    i use a basting syringe to get teh muck out every other day
    spray it on my lawn. seems to be a decent fertilizer:grad:

    the 3 koi have grown to 7 or 8 inches in a half barrel in just a couple years. easy maintenance, but no plants.

    yeah, it smells bad, but it only takes a minute. All the shit seems to collect in a small pot i have at the bottom of the barrel. the pot has a few rocks in it to keep the shit from floating around.
    I like suctioning it out. reminds me of those nasty loogies you get out of your kids nose when they are babies

    I guess you could save the shit and put it in a compost pile if you are into that at all.
