I did a search on here and saw where people had discussed this a few years ago. Then the conversations seemed to drop.Does anybody use freshwater clams or mussels as another food item? I was looking…Continue
Is the substrate netting running horizontal or vertical in the tank ? sure would be great if someone could post more photos !
I have considered trying prawn in a section of my system. In my research, I have seen 2 types of prawn being used. The first is the tiger prawn that is being shipped in large numbers from Asia (Penaeus monodon) and also the Macrobrachium rosenbergii). Has anybody tried either or both of these shrimp so we can have a comparison?
Just joining your small group. I'm currently growing tilapia in an ibc tank with several more on hand to expand, however, I've been considering freshwater shrimp. Because I'm in S.W. Missouri, the only people doing this are in ponds during the summer and not utilizing grow beds, which if I find a bit strange. I noticed James seems to have a way of utilizing ibc tanks for this.
How is the netting attached to the corners in the image above of the net shelving system? it looks like the netting is stretched with clips at each corner but I cannot quite make them out.
As I understand it Crayfish are typically very aggressive toward each other the reason for the shelving system used to provide enough space for each individual so that they don't feel threatened by their neighbor. My questions:
. Which available species grows the biggest?
. Which species is the least aggressive?
. Is the local North Florida Crawdad be a candidate?
Going to pickup prawn next week.
There is a guy in Weatherford TX that breeds them. 45 min west of Fort Worth. He gave me a tour last fall of his place and was very helpful. Aquacultureoftexas is his wed page.
