I would like to let you all know of an experience I had with a Tilapia seller. I believe they are located near or in Orlando Florida, and I found them on the web.Since I have been having major…Continue
Seems to be a number of fish problems this week, myself included.My system has been running since October and I have encountered all the normal problems a beginner can have, including a full scale…Continue
I saw an older question about this Company. And now I remember what my mother used to tell me."If you can't say anything nice, Don't say anything at all!"That said, does anyone know of a good source…Continue
"Well, I am almost finished with my garden. I never thought it would be this much work. I got lucky and found two small ponds for sale, $50 for both. So I installed them above ground so I can use my original pond as a sump for the…"
The more I look at them I think they are frog eggs. But I hadn't thought of using them for food for the bigger fish. I have a whole 10 Gal. tank full of them. Treats for the fish. Yea!! LOL"
"I got a look at David's farm over in Bradenton. Impressive and he has a wealth of knowledge too.
My question today is what freshly hatched Tilapia fry look like. I found some long lines of eggs and put them in a separate tank, and today…"
"John, I just recently started using well water in my pond. My thought is that these fish (Tilapia) exist in the wild so why are we so concerned about it. My fish are thriving, enough so that I am adding two new ponds to the…"
"If I might add my opinion. I think you are making this too complicated. Since I stopped worrying about how fast I fill or drain and also worry less about my chemistry, My fish are thriving and my plants are awesome, that is a first…"
"I am using flood and drain with a media bed. Pump is on all the time and is works very well. my only problem has been with my design of the bell syphons. I have too many and will change that when I harvest my crop."
"Steve, Florida has Medical Marijuana coming up for a vote in November. I don't know how to send you an email, but if you could give me give me any information about growing it would be appreciated.
I would like to let you all know of an experience I had with a Tilapia seller. I believe they are located near or in Orlando Florida, and I found them on the web.Since I have been having major problems with fish dying I fired off an email question. I got an excellent reply the next day along with an offer to ring him up. I did just that and believe that he may have an answer for me.Regardless, his name is Ted and his company is Tilapia Spot.…See More
"Bio-filtration and solids filtration? Good question as I do not know what additional filtration might be needed. My pond is 220 gal. and I can see the bottom. However, my grow bed covers half the pond making it impossible to see…"
"What are you doing for bio-filtration, and what are you doing for solids filtration. Unless a fish tank is very very deep, I think the clarity should be kept clear enough to see all of the fish. But that might just be me and I raise trout. So you…"
Seems to be a number of fish problems this week, myself included.My system has been running since October and I have encountered all the normal problems a beginner can have, including a full scale algae bloom. I started with goldfish, cheap and easy to get. Now I should say that the not so nice guy I bought Tilapia, from shipped them and most were dead. However out of the two shipments of 80 combined, about 12 or so lived. I did not know this until I got the bloom and had netted all the fish…See More
I'm just north of the
Roosevelt bridge in North River Shores
1879 NW River Trail, 34994

I'm 1 year into aquaponics with 50 sqft growbeds and 48 tilapia. I have learned a huge amount doing this.
Tilapia can't take big rapid shifts in temperature, PH, ammonia levels or dissolved oxygen.
High water temps (summer) removes dissolved oxygen. Low water temps (below 50f) kills bacteria that removes ammonia. Fish can't handle a ph shift of more than .2 in a 24 hour period.
Let me know if you want to come see my system. Maybe I can help you get things working.
