"We are at 6,500 ft elevation in SW Colorado where the temps can get pretty darn low. We have 36 Blue Tilapias that are locally grown and we maintain the IBC tote at around 74-78 f and everyone is growing nicely"
"Hey Sheri, you were mentioning that you wrapped up your fruit with socks or something like that to repel pests if I remember correctly? I still have those damn flying bugs that like to hang on my tomatoes, and was wondering if putting ziploc…"
"If anyone is interested, I have several IBC tanks I'm selling for $75 a piece. If need be, I can cut one for you to use as a grow bed for an extra $10.................I'm in Springfield, Mo. I can deliver within 50 miles for a little…"

"It looks like if you could get the temperature up in Dec and Jan just a bit that it would be perfect for Blue Tilapia. Either by insulation or heater(elec/or Solar). I'm on the east coast of Florida and that's what I plan on doing. Also…"
"Thanks TC, I just want to take advantage of the algae and phyto-plankton in my pool. I'm not real interested in keeping the sides particularly clean. I have fat-head minnows, but I'm looking for something that I eat later."
