Hi Darlene.  I'm getting about 400 on Thursday and will be selling most of them locally for $2 each.  I'm in Boulder. Send me a PM if you are interested.

Where can I find tilapia fingerlings?  We'll be needing 20-40 lbs about mid Sept. We're on the western slope but would be happy to drive to the front range to pick them up. Thanks for your help!

Hello, I'm wondering if anyone can help me find just a few fish. I only have 27 gallon fish tanks. I'm really interested in redclaw crwfish. I don't know what I can grow in sucha small environment. I will get a bigger tank soon.

Well, cycling is going okay, but I am having a heck of a time getting my pH down, I am going to try some reverse osmosis water to see if that helps. I am getting 10 channel catfish this Saturday from a guy in Rocky Ford. He said they are 8-10 inch,and he's giving em to me for 2 bucks a piece. I would get more, but I think that's about as good as I can do with the length of the drive back to Pueblo.

I sent a message to the Colorado Aquapons group and will post here as well. We would love to meet others in this wonderful aquaponics journey while enjoying a perfectly prepared three course Trout dinner at Jax Fish House Denver or Boulder tomorrow night, May 26th to benefit the GrowHaus.
