"I disagree with the presumption that good AACT can't be made with aquarium air pumps. I believe that a good aquarium air pump can in fact produce more than enough gas exchange (CO2 / O2) to support the microbial culture. Pumping more air does…"

"Didn't see this question until today. I didn't really get into any real trouble, but some folks here warned me of the possibility of brewing bad microbes. I think your air pump is much better than mine. If you start with good VC, it should…"

"Yep. This is a whole 'nother level of vermicompost tea brewing. Tim also deals with good (but "affordable") microscopes so you can analyze the microbes in the tea. I tried aerating tea once and found out some of the dangers in not…"
