I'm a huge fan of pacu, and it was my first intention to have them drive my aquaponics adventure. They grow very quickly and are excellent table fare (unlike channel cat, which I consider barely tolerable and never mind talking about…"
"I have a 4'x4'x6' floating net box. It is made out of 1/8" netting. It is floating in a 10000 gallon FT. I put 350 Tilapia fingerlings in three or four weeks ago. The fish are eating and active. I know the amount of water I have…"

Also...along with your math about fish to amount of grow bed space. I'd watch Bright Agrotech's recent video on…"
"Thank you for the encouraging news Harold! The last 3 days the water temps were 70,72 & 73F. How do people raise cooler water fish ( trout, perch) if one needs temps in the 70's to have your bio-filter healthy?"

So good I can't say how much I'll get thumped, and it's a limited supply (I should have about 25 when all is said and done).

Each piece is 3'x4' total of 12sqft per half an IBC.Math275gal/7.5gal per cubit ft = 36 2/3cubit ft of water which supports 36 fishesFor the 36…See More
"Viad. We have a new small hobby AP system and it has only been cycled since Feb. we heat our FT with a closed loop that is tied into our house boiler & domestic hot water system (hubby is a plumber) so it is basically free because it is heated…"
"I understand the expanded shale is a great alternative. Unfortunately it's not readily available here in AZ, and shipping is quite costly. Janet, if you can get some easily, do so and count yourself blessed! :)
