I'm brand new to AP but have been reading and, hopefully, studying for about a year or so. During that time, I knew I wanted to have tilapia as my fish, but am fairly sure I won't be able to sustain temps that they need during Spring, Fall and Winter (it is Washington, after all).

My AP system is in a hoop house with 6mil cover, 330gal IBC FT with 1 gravel bed and 1 dwc bed so far. 

I began thinking trout, but am pretty sure they'll go insane in the heat we're having.

So, I hope y'all would help me out by letting me know what fish you're using in your Western Washington AP systems... especially if you aren't heating or cooling your water.

Thanks so much!

Right, James. I was considering Trout when I started. Love those guys.  However, my water got up to high 80's during the summer last year. Figured that it's easier to heat water than to cool it.  How did you keep 'em cool?
