Are you referring to expanded shale??
Dave Story: Grow media. Where can I get aquaponics stones? And where can I learn more about them?
the University of Arizona did some R&D on grow media. It is lighter, larger and more porous than the hydroton. I am having a big batch made. the hydroton costs a lot and it gets into my plumbing. are you going to raft your plants or put them into grow media?
To Dave Story: "aquaponics stones" ... what do you mean? smooth river stones? pea gravel?
P.S. I'm new to aquaponics and still building my first IBC tote system. I haven't added a medium yet, so any insight would be appreciated.
I really would like to see this group grow. I am learning from other groups. So, I will show you mine, I hope you will show me your system or add to the discussion here. Oh, I am changing my hydroton to aquaponics stones. You can see them behind my tomatoes.
howdy from Tucson
I started about 6 mos ago with 50 pure white niles (ha ha), they were smaller than a dime and all white at the time, I put them all in a 100 gallon rubbermaid tank and a 50 gallon on top with hydroton and an experiment of plants. after 4 mos I seperated my 7 gray fish into another 100 gal tank with a 100 gallon tank on top experimenting with growing trees. a month later I sexed my fish to find 14 females,, I have added a 300 gallon rubbermaid in a greenhouse..
13 females with 2 males in a 100 gallon tank. I have 4 tanks with fish
Aquaponics is definitely possible in AZ! We are in Tucson. Great idea starting this group David.
Hi! Thanks for starting a group for AZ, David.
We are in Gilbert, Were are the rest of you located?
So I took the jump and purchased an IBC tote. It's not completely assembled yet, but I'll take some pictures tonight and post them if I can find my camera.
