I'm building a house right now, so my time is limited, but after the house is built, my wife and I are planning to do something similar to what you've done. We hope to raise some catfish, but might also take a stab at raising some shrimp as we've heard that others have had success in this.
I am glad to see people as yourself doing this and having success. Keep it up.

Thanks for publishing your results. Please keep it up. You've really stirred my interest. Your results kind of remind me how Thomas Jefferson used to track his garden.
I have a 55 gallon aquarium (it used to have salt water fish in it). I use it to start my plants in now. My coon dog can't get to them in there. For some reason she loves to roll around in peet.
Hi brent I would like to thank you for sharing your information with me. Your site is great and I hope to read more of it soon especiialy about your 3 months in the woods. I will be trying the catfish in barrell experiment once I get my garden settled in for the year. It sounds fascinating. It was however a little rude of your wife to go into labor in the middle of the experiment though dont you think? priorities I guess. I am currently trying to find more information on growing prawn in barrells as well as I have an almost limitless supply of plastic barrels. Also I will need help moving those barrels to your house as my wife has informed me that I will be living with you from now on. I eat alot so I hope you have a good job. I recomend everyone go check out his website, It is great.
Real Estate Reviews
We clean catfish out in a 500 gallon stock tank this is how we handle
cleaning the poo . I bought a old pool pump and sand filter at an
auction I attached it at the bung socket at the bottem of the tank.
Made a cleaning wand out of a old pool vaccum pole and use it just as in
a pool . I use a part cleaning vat pump as an airerator . It is some
work but well worth it when you catch 15 or 20 cats that weigh 10 +
pounds . We keep them in there for a month or better feeding them small
bluegill and crawdads . The kids love catching the food so that part is
easy . We leave this running from march thru october and have never had
any trouble keeping them alive as long as they are lip hooked and not
gill of gut hooked . You can cut the hook off inside a gut hooked cat
and leave it inside but we only leave them in the tank max of 10 days .
We mark them with calf tags through the dorsel fin makes sorting alot
