Does anyone in the Phoenix area have any scuds/freshwater shrimp they are willing to sell and/or offer any experiences using them in aquaponics in Phoenix (heat tolerance, etc)?
The good people at B.O.S.S. (Buckeye (Arizona) Outreach for Social Services) are really getting the hang of managing their 3-Hour farm system. They got it through the cold and storms of January and February 2017 and now it is starting to grow again. Good job folks.
P.S. It is called a 3-Hour farm for that is how long it takes to build one from out the box to filling with water and turning on the air.

Howdy all! I've moved and cycled up a new system. I'm now looking for a few fry. Any central phoenix sources? Most I am seeing is in Chandler/Gilbert. What options do we have available? I'm open to different species than just tilapia. My last setup had 150ish tilapia (a little out of hand imo) but I'm not complaining, just curious ;)
It's about that time of year when we get an unwanted population explosion of tilapia in our systems. I have plenty of water and I'm always looking for more tilapia. If you need to reduce your population, store your fish or shut down your system I'll take them. Call or text me at 203.698.2626, I am just off the 101 in Scottsdale. Thank you!
New concepts are making aquaponics easier, less expensive and more mainstream. In this case it is great to hang out with our friends Catherine and Barry Cohen. Though just a few months old, their system is doing great, they are already harvesting from it tomatoes, lettuce and cucumbers and they do innovative things. For example, I would have never thought that fig trees could be rooted in aquaponics and their watermelons growing already.
I thought you might enjoy the quick vid made by my wife and master gardener Angela.
Looking to expand my system, does anyone have a connection for IBC totes?
Mark Bogart at http://valleyaquaponics.net teaches classes so does http://www.endlessfoodsystems.com. In Tucson you have the Tucson Aquaponics Project http://tucsonap.org.
