300 gallon buried tank in backyard growing trout through the winter (no plants in winter) converting to tilapia and garden in summer.
100 gallon tank in basement under 150 watts of flourescents breeding guppies and growing cilantro, beans, basil and more.
Please tell us something else about yourself.
Helped found AeroGrow, makers of the AeroGarden indoor hydroponic gardens.
John Thanks for the reply. I'm able to buy minnows [fatheads] from the local fish suppliers who come to town once a month in the winter for local pond stocking. We buy several hundred to stock our own private fishing holes along with catfish and bream. I just think minnows may be my answer to aquaponics as we catch all the other fish we need while baby sitting. Kids fishing poles beer make good stories.
John Sylvia mentioned you may have grown minnows at one time and I was trying to get more information on food , tempture,ect. I think minnows may be the way for me as that will be the easiest one to market locally [bait house 1 mile away]. Thanks for any information you can point me to. L F
Thanks for joining the Aquaponic Gardening community! I hope you find it a great place to meet fellow aquapons, share videos and photos, chat, and learn. I’ve started the ball rolling with a few general forum topics, and will try to add more on a regular basis, but I’m hoping that you and others will add your own topics as they occur to you. I’ve also added some of my favorite videos and a few random photos…again, please share your favorites with us (I love the one of your basement setup!)!
We have just a few simple rules: stay on the subject of aquaponics, keep it cordial (no flaming!), and conduct no business or advertising, except making announcements about events and classes that are relevant to the community. If someone decides to break these rules they will get a warning, and then be banned from the community after that. But I’m hoping that never happens!
I’m new to forum management and this is a new forum, so any and all suggestions are welcome.
