Larry, I've got some ~1" tilapia available if you are still looking?

Larry, I've got an active breeder tank. All of my current fingerlings are spoken for, but I'll let you know when the next set of wee ones are released from mommy's mouth.

So, thanks to John Carlton, formerly of Green Valley, my 'aqua partner' and I are just getting a new garden set up.  We changed the foot print a bit from how John had it set up, and basically have a tiered cascading system.  SUPER simple!  Getting ready to fill 'er up, and then try out the pump and plumbing.  Now that we are having warmer nights, we plan to start out with a few gold fish and koi (both my partner and I want to have a few fish we can keep through the winter as pets and they will ultimately go in the lower sump tank) and then move into tilapia once it gets warmer.  Anyone have suggestions for first greens to plant?    See the attached pic for our garden set up.  Appreciate any comments or suggestions...we are both newbies!

Hi all, I've been running a raft bed this past winter for the first time and was great for all the greens. But now that it is starting to warm up, what are you growing in your raft beds through out the hotter months?

I live in Green Valley and have a system I am getting rid of (selling home and moving out of town) It is yours if you come pick it up. 1-320 gal IBC for fish, 4-1/2 280 gal grow beds, 75 gal sump tank, pump, pvc tubing, etc Please call John at 520-471-5622 if interested.

Hi all.  I'm a beginner in this field and located down in Tucson, but am doing some research regarding successful aquaponic systems in Northern Sonora.  Anyone working down there - or have a contact down there?

A new system going in at the Farm at South Mountain. Phx Az.

I live up in Kingman. My neighbor has a pretty good set up right across the street. It seems to be producing very well. He is out of town for a few days but I will check it out closely when he returns. He has everything in a plastic greenhouse. He did it the hard way. Trial and error. I hope to learn from him and this forum.

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)?
