Gracilaria Hayi tumble culture outdoors

Recommended Posts

Subsea

Due to a tank seam leak on indoor tank, I moved a 5G bucket of Gracilaria Hayi to an outside 150G Rubbermade tank.  To reduce sun intensity, two 20’ by 20’ by 20’ shade sails were installed over back patio.  This tank was set up as a stand alone with a 35W UV sterilizer and a Mag 7 and Mag 12 for circulation.   Air bubbler used to assist with circulation.  Evaporative cooling maintaintained temperature below 82 degrees with a 20” Box fan at 2400 CFM using 50W.  This set up uses 200W of power.

Would you say the results could be... shocking.

I hope not shocking.  With a GFCI, electrical disconnect is instantaneous when a ground fault is detected.

Hi Subsea.  Do you have additional photos of the growth yields of the biomass?
