Well, I'm not located in "South" Florida, but rather "western central" Florida.  The physical operation of Ramona Aquaponics Farm, is located at 16433 Ramona Ln., Hudson, FL 34667.  However our miling address is Ramona Aquaponics Farm, C/O David Lindstedt, 8508 Split Rail Ln., Hudson, FL 34667

Hello anyone in the SW Florida area selling pure blue tilpia???

I'm in the Keys and, so far, things are going pretty well. We had a brief cold snap a few days ago and it was touch and go for a couple of days. I only lost one fry, which have now been in the tank for 6 days. 

Hi, I live in Naples too and was wondering if you found a good place to get grave at reasonable prices? I am just starting to set up a system.

Temps in the low 80s today and the fish were loving it. Never saw them eat so eagerly as today. Plants going great too.

I had to phone around to some of the construction supply places. Most everyone had only limestone rock which is not what we want to use. I lucked up and one guy had a 1/4 bed full left over from a custom order that I got for $20. They did mention next time that they can order anything it just takes it a while to get in so I guess that would hold true for most supply places here. But I guess that is the issue...they can get anything but because it has to be trucked in the cost is NOT favorable. The only other thing I found that people sometimes keep is Basalt (Bluestone) which is crushed volcanic rock. That can be cheaper because the size we want 1/2 - 1 inch is actually the leftovers from sorting the larger stuff they sell the most of for lawn and decorative work. I will call a couple of business's in the industrial park up near Ft Myers off of MLK Blvd. this week and post up what pricing I get.

Thanks. I appreciate that.

Miami here and just in the design and planning stage but very eager to get started.

Doing a lot of homework and this forum is AWESOME and so are the people willing to help us newbies.

I will keep everyone posted to our progress through our blog here on this site. We should have our system up and running sometime in April ... that is our plan anyway :-)
