Short video on Ray Middle School's Baby Crawdads

Here is a short video that I shot of one of my 6th Grade "Hydroponic & Aquaponic"
student helpers watching the newly hatched baby Crawdads. Taking our Region's Vice President's advice (Mike Barbieri) we decided to use 12 Australian Red Clawed Crawdads as part of our Aquaponic system instead of Tilapia fish. There was certainly a learning curve as far as the care for these fierce creatures, but the student helpers certainly do not have to clean the filters as much.

  1. Wow! Very cool video.... I liked how your student explained their process for caring for the new babies! Do you also have plants growing in this environment from the nutrient rich water?

    Thanks for sharing and inspiring others.
