There is a map that you can look at.  Not everyone has added themselves to it but it may help you find some people close to you if you like.

I haven't found any organic feed close to us... Although, I understand that Black Water Creek Koi food is pretty high quality stuff and it's produced here in florida. I have yet to try it.

I am Pompano Beach if you need any help.

Ronald, Check out Larry's set up. It should fit in your FL room. You could always put something around the tubs....

If 'looks' is a priority...Jon and Cat Billings are members here in the FL group (palm bay)...they make and sell some really nice fiberglass AP systems.

This struck me as funny because it seems to describe many of us, possibly most of us.

Even in my very small urban backyard, I'm growing quite a bit of food and will grow a lot more next year.

Thanks for the responses, and David L, thanks for the link.

Maybe I can drive up to see your setup some day.

I moved from an acre in Ohio to a condo here, so I don't have any outdoor space to grow, but I do have a small Florida room, where I'm thinking of putting a small system, to at least get my feet wet, grow some strawberries herbs and lettuce, and a few fish.

Hoping to get a small house in the next year or two, with a yard where we can grow more stuff.

Really miss a yard, we grew all sorts of things in Ohio.

Can someone point me in the direction of starter setups, about 15-20 square feet?

I'm very handy, and was looking at the IBC Backyard Aquaponics video, but would prefer something with a little more curb appeal, for an indoor living space, combo greenhouse/man cave.

What's up Dave H!?  It's been a busy week after being away for a whole week! Time to go tend to the fish

Hi Dave R...Hi Ron. ...You should get some kind of a response...there sure are alot of us in FL  I'm in  central FL, just south of Orlando.

Maybe my post will be enough of a 'thread bump', that the right aquapons , see it !

Also, this page shows all the FL will take a little time...check through the list, and send a 'friend request' to someone near you. It is nice to meet and see other peoples systems ! Good luck guys !

I'm in south Melbourne off State Road 192 and a few miles from I-95 - about 2 hours from Delray Beach and 3 hours from Miami.  I have 544 square feet of floating raft - lots of construction photos on my website:
