BACK TO THE ROOTS AQUA FARM REVIEW & GIVEAWAY ($60 VALUE) (Closed)
HELLO & HAPPY THURSDAY!!
I don’t know about you.. but I’m the WORST at growing plants..
I don’t know if its because I’m getting older or that I know just how difficult it is to do New York City.. but I LOVE to grow anything!!
(I have 5 avocado trees growing in my apartment)
In addition to loving to grow plants I love the idea of sustainability and not having to run to the store every time I need something..
So when I heard about the Back to the Roots company and their sustainable kits..
I’m typically skeptic of any products that grow well, anything.. plants and me don’t go well together lol
I was completely shocked though at easy how easy and how much fun this kit really is..
Whether you’re looking to grow your own herbs, educated students, or simply would like a low maintenance pet..
YOU WILL LOVE THE NEW AND IMPROVED
We were a few months away from graduation at UC Berkeley when we first heard that you could grow gourmet mushrooms on recycled coffee grounds. Inspired by the idea of turning waste into fresh, local food, we experimented in Alex’ fraternity kitchen, ultimately growing one test bucket of oyster mushrooms. With that one bucket and incredible support from the community, we decided to forgo our investment banking and consulting offers. Instead we became full-time urban mushroom farmers and haven’t looked back since!

WHAT’S IN MY TANK?!
The second group of worker catfishes include those that consume the uneaten food from the community aquarium. These are the smooth-armored catfishes in the family
Callichthyidae, which includes the genera Aspidoras, Brochis and Corydoras. These fish are able to consume atmospheric oxygen, which is absorbed into the bloodstream through their modified vascularized intestine.
Callichthyidae, which includes the genera Aspidoras, Brochis and Corydoras. These fish are able to consume atmospheric oxygen, which is absorbed into the bloodstream through their modified vascularized intestine. This enables these fish to live in oxygen-starved water in their natural habitat. It is not uncommon for the aquarist to observe these fish making a rapid ascent to the surface and calmly settle back on the bottom. Consequently, a cover is advised, as I have more than once found an individual on the floor after such an event. These catfishes are diurnal and are interesting to watch as they swim across the gravel with their snouts going over the gravel for uneaten food. In addition, these catfishes will not uproot live plants.
2 BLACK MOLLY’S:
The Black Molly is a short-finned hybrid variation of Poecilia latipinna, the Sailfin Molly. The Black Molly is all black in coloration with short fins. They may have patches of a slight gold or silver coloration when a juvenile, but will outgrow this with age. Mollies have the ability to adapt to a variety of salt levels in the aquarium. With a gradual acclimation, these fish may be maintained in either a freshwater or saltwater aquarium. In the freshwater aquarium, a teaspoon of aquarium salt per gallon is recommended for optimum health.
