Hi Tony!

Welcome to the AZAP group Tony!

I a local AP grower too.  I have 3 -4 years of experience so I can help if you have trouble.  I sell tilapia fry and fingerlings and high quality food cheaper ($2/lb) then Walmart sells gross food ($3/lb).

I'm at the 101 and Chaparral, there are other active locals nearby.

Hope to meet up with you soon.

All the best,

Jim in Scottsdale
