Bluegill or Bream Growers

The often overlooked fish option that can handle the high temperatures like tilapia but also the cool temperatures like catfish but still be small enough for a 100 gallon tank and acceptable to eat for people who refuse fish who lack scales.

Profile Information

How did you find us?
searcing the web for info
Are you an aquaponic gardener already?
yes
If so, what type of system? (pick all that apply)
flood and drain, about 30gal FT, 3 small GB about 9 sq feet. started sometime last year then had to condense to the size it is now and restarted 3 weeks ago. 18 large goldfish now, indoors in my bedroom, using a 500 watt output grow lamp and a little sun that comes from window.
Please tell us something else about yourself.
I think that on Murray Hallams tape when he talks about "monster mint" it is pretty funny, couldnt think of anything for me that was funny.

I have to agree with you about pearlite! Went down that road once...never again.

Information is the biggest challenge in aquaponics, but that is why community sites like this are so valuable. Glad to have you on board.
