Aquaponic Gardening

A Community and Forum For Aquaponic Gardeners

I was just reading in Sylvias book that Catfish seem to have a little better tolerance to water temperature extremes in cold weather. (our winters are mild but still average 40-50 degrees, and will dip below freezing for a few days at a time.

All things being equal... are catfish as easy to raise as Tilapia ??  Or are Tilapia a more durable fish for beginners?

I also have warm hot summers... 85-103 degrees...so fish tank will have to be shaded for sure...and I might have to cool water gently on extreme days.

Hi Bradly.  I run a small indoor system during the winter which is more for fun than actual production.  It also helps me for starting my outdoor system in Spring because of my existing bacteria rich media I am able to transfer from the indoor system to the outdoor one.


Aquaponics involves the growth of plants and fish together in an integrated system. Catfish Aquaponics can be used with catfish and it is well for tank. In an aquaponic, the fish waste uses as a source of food for the plants growth and plants provide natural nutrients for the water where fish live in. The fish waste converts into nitrites and solid waste converted into vermicompost that becomes the plant food.
