Got a job? Keep looking

    Job hunting sucks! It sucks a lot less when you have a job though. 

But isn't that disloyal? 

    No, it's a way to keep pushing yourself and reaffirming your career decisions. Whether you love your job or you're looking for a way out, make sure your resume is up to date. Submit some applications to interesting jobs and take some interviews occasionally if you can. You're already employed, so no pressure. You'll have opportunities to test your knowledge, learn what gaps you'll need to bridge in your career growth, and improve your sense of self worth. 

But what if I get an offer? I like my job and I can't imagine leaving. 

    That's great! Knowing there's an opportunity to leave for a competitive offer means you've got options, and you're not trapped. It means you're doing what you're doing because you want to, not because you have to. That's a powerful thing to have in the back of your mind on a bad day. Loyalty isn't refusing to consider your options, it's the confidence you gain by choosing.

Ammonia in the system

    In an aquaponic system, ammonia, ammonium, and nitrite are all chemicals produced by the fish. In excess, these chemicals are highly toxic. By cultivating bacteria to metabolize these chemicals, we're able to generate a plant-life supporting nutrient that is also far less toxic to fish in moderate concentrations; nitrate. This process requires the cycling of water through a cohesive system made up of smaller isolated units for fish, plants, and bacteria. Circulation and continuous metabolic processes result in a harmonious exchange, fueling key functions and keeping toxicity at manageable levels for the entire system. The farmer must work to initiate and maintain these functional processes.
