Hi Richard,  Thank you for the information on the salt situation.  Can you send that information to my husband as well?  Randy Proctor is also a newbie member.  We have two computers but his is the only one that it prints too.   We would like to keep your information handy for future reference.  What type of fish do you have?  We have white nile, blue and hibrid Tilapia.  We are trying to get started on selling Tilapia and also aquaponic tank set-ups in Oklahoma.  Almost there.....thanks again for your help we really appreciate it

Hey Richard,

I have large, medium and small B. Tilapia. Give me a call to let me know how many fingerling you need to start a bigger system. You can reach me at 813-838-6284. I have  2100 and 300 gal. tanks. Plus I have the 50 gal. tank full of fingerlings that are growing as I speak.  I also have snails that I am growing for restaurants-Escargot. Enjoy your new adventure in the realm of Aquaponics. It is interesting and fun.

We are just learning. There isn't much to see yet. One day, maybe next year we will have a fish fry!
