Thank you all for joining my group, I hope to do a lot with all anyone interested. Please tell me any event suggestions you would like us to do.

Kari, what is controlling the water level in your grow beds? Can't see what's in the beds. Is it ebb and flow? or constant flow? Are you keeping the water 2" below the media surface? More pics would really help.
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)?
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 ;)
