I hava a complete system that needs a home. It is 3' x 7' redwood with a pool liner, hydrocorn, bell syphon raised bed above a 100gal fish tank. It also has a removable garden cover that I use during the winter. )what winter?? I'm moving to a new location and don't have the room for it. Included is a pump, heaters and whatever else is wanted. Please call for pictures or to talk about your interest in this system.

Hi, I'm new into the trade and it seems that all I have are males :( is there anyone in the Baltimore MD USA area selling females or mixed sexed blue tilapia. Looking to buy

Tilapia are breeders. They will multiply even when you aren't trying to get them to but if you are trying to grow your stock then you can get 300-500 per litter. Word of caution.... unless you have the space don't try to keep them all. I made that mistake and it really slows the growth process because you have to limit the food unless you have enough filtration to handle it.

I am going to use Red Tilapia.  Had thought of using Red Claw Crayfish; but visited someone who had some and they to time intensive just to take care of them never-alone the entire setup.  And for whatever reason they are like cattle, when they stampede (start eating one another) it is contagious between them.  Plus I live on a big lake and if I get to many female Tilapia I can always sell as bait to the fishermen who are going after strippers.

Thanks Jeff, I found some on line (Craig's list). I am going to have to make a road trip soon. I will post when I am planning to go. Maybe I can find others in area that are interested in IBC totes and we can get a discount on quantity. I need to get 3 for myself.

Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky - Is anyone doing Aquaponics in this area?  I need help with my setup.  Had it going for almost a year and nothing really grows.  Need a helping hand.

Craig, I found mine on (pardon the pun) Craig's List. Paid $35 semi cleaned non food grade. As long as they aren't strong chemical or heavy oils you can probably clean them sufficiently. While most of the info you find online is good I think sometimes it goes to the extreme in some matters such as tanks you can use. What kind of fish do you plan to use?  To play it safe you can throw some cheap goldfish in the tanks and see how they fair.

Hi Luana. I am definitely interested in your fingerlings and totes. I tried to message but I couldn't. Try messaging me?
Comment by Craig Shevlin on February 23, 2015 at 10:40am

Jeff, Where did you find your totes, even if they are not food quality?

Thanks, Craig

Comment by Luana Hiebert on February 22, 2015 at 2:31pm
Jason, we have tilapia fingerlings for sale, and are about 25 miles from Rathdrum. We also know where you can get IBC totes at Athol near here. :)
Comment by Jason pickett on February 22, 2015 at 9:59am
I'm moving to Rsthdrum Idaho in the first week of March. Is there anywhere in the area I can find a couple IBC's, Tilapia or Perch fingerlings?
Comment by Bob Bailey on February 10, 2015 at 6:05am

Where is the nearest place I can buy tilapia fingerlings in Southern Illinois?  I have the permit required already.  Thanks

Comment by Jeff S on February 7, 2015 at 12:15pm

IBCs are great if you have the space for them. I've been toying with the idea of aquaponic dutch buckets. The reasons are 1. they require less media as you can space and size them for individual plants 2. They are easier to move if needed 3. They can be extended to the outside in the summer if you like.  You would still get the filtration needed for your fish once the bacteria are established. An IBC FT can feed a lot of plants if you have room for them.

Comment by Yaacov Levi on February 7, 2015 at 9:48am

If, I was building a greenhouse system then  IBCs would be the most economical way to go. I have thought of a small hoop house system for some time, right now I dont have a real good place for it. It could be.


Comment by Jeff S on February 7, 2015 at 8:36am

Derrick, I got lucky and found unlimited IBCs for $35. They aren't "food grade". They were used for a water soluble degreaser, solvent to clean machines. I washed them thoroughly and they work fine. I wouldn't use them if they were harsh chemicals or oils though. What I'm saying is that unless you're going totally "organic" you have cheaper options.
