Is this a dead group? Are their active members in the SA area. Austin is too far to travel to collaborate with othersContinue

Hi guys, I have a new NFT system.  What crops can take this hot weather?  The system is outdoors?

Hello San Antonio , anyone in San Antonio wanting to do large scale aquaponics?

I have been in aquaponics for over two years and now ready to build a commercial system here on the north side of town. Looking for someone who might like to work ( paid job) with me ??

Let me know. You can email me at rkolb01 at G mail dot com

I built my own tank, about 250 gallons and lined it with insulation board. I was contemplating running heaters next winter, but I was not sure how much that would run my bill up. I definitely want to avoid killing my fish though. My water got down into the low to mid 50's so I need to make sure it is 20 degrees warmer.

We started with goldfish. Then Alex gave us a bunch of Tilapia and they were doing well. We had some that were bigger than my hand and some that were only a couple of inches long. Then it got cold and they started dying. We lost about 20-30 fish and were only able to save 10 by putting them in the bathtub in the house. We bought aquarium heaters and put them back outside in one tank but our electricity bill went up quite a bit. We hope to have something else by next winter to heat the hole green house.

We've given some fish away too but don't have any right now.

They where hybrids to begin with . I bred them about 5 times and gave those all away.

Thanks for helping me. One more question if you don't mind. Did you develop your own breeders out of those?

Did you start with fingerlings or fry? Or did you get breeders?

I was never able to find any locally unless some fellow aquapons are willing to share. Rob Nash in Austin is where I got mine.
