Rob, with the size tanks you have are you more into fish or plant production?

Comment by Rob on April 22, 2014 at 8:27am

Hey all! Glad to see there are more aquaponic farmers out there in the great white North instead of the warm and easy-to-do-aquaponics-in South :)

I looked at your pics. Impressive setup. Probably made the right decision shutting down for the winter we had. Unfortunately I have Tilapia and they don't like the cold. I took more interest in raising fish than raising plants. I threw up a small GH late in the fall and did a lot of learning throughout the winter. Now I think I was overdoing it a lot. I'll be ready for next winter. For the summer I'm moving back outside and trying to grow some veggies. There's just no end to how much fun you can have with this stuff.

This will be our second summer. Fired it up a couple weeks ago. A few of the feeder gold survived the winter. We just put some cold weather stuff out to get the ball rolling this morning.

Yeah doesn't seem to be many of us in Michigan. I try to post in these Michigan groups regularly just to keep them active. So how long you been doing aquaponics?

I sent a membership request to the "other group" last week still no response. In the Kalamazoo area.

John, Did you find any Tilapia yet?

Comment by Jeff S on March 11, 2014 at 9:18pm

I found another Michigan group last night but it has been inactive for quite a while. I get a lot of info from mostly the IBC and Arizona groups. I've been at this since last summer. Haven't had any success with veggies but have all the fish I can handle. I'm no expert but you may be preparing for more fish than you'll have grow bed for. What kind of fish are you planning on? Would be happy to help out where I can.
