We have a large 8 tank, 1,800 gallon system which is fully mature and can produce 100 lbs. of fish per month.  We currently have around 100 2lbs Rainbow Trout in there now.  It is also currently growing micro greens worth $40.00 per pound as well as tomatoes. It can produce $500-$600 worth of greens and tomatoes per month. There's an extensive list of other produce that can be grown in this system. Most of what we've tried has thrived. It is also set up with 2 deepwater lettuce beds producing 100 heads of lettuce every 3-4 weeks. 

We used Stainless steel tanks as they are the most stable non toxic non leaching material there is.   Included in the sale are the  8 stainless steel tanks, 3 pumps, Solids collector, + a back up solids collector, wood burning stove to keep it from getting too cold for the plants, (the trout can take lower temps than most plants) all the wood for the walkways and the pedestals. Also multiple extra stainless steel trays for micro-green production. We will provide you with a comprehensive training and operations manual and hands on training to teach you how to keep it running. We'll be ready to make 2 trips per your request in the 2 weeks after it is set up at your location as part of this deal. We will be prepared to spend up to 2 hours with you on each of these visits.  If you are more than 100 miles from us in Guerneville ca. that may or may not be an option but phone and skype consultations may be more logical.  After those 2 visits we will be available at $50 -$75 per hr. for phone consultations and in person visits. The cost is $20,000.00 for the system, and installation. Price is $15,000 if you would like to transport and install the system yourself.

In case anyone is interested I have friends, Debra and Curtis who plan to auction everything off in March. They have a lot of aquaponic stuff such as tanks, tilapia and other house hold items, and even their cave house may be auctioned do to unforeseen circumstances.

Here is the link to the event

 Below is a link to the cave house and aquaponic set up. He built the cave house and it is a really nice unique home. 

 I do not know if anyone is interested in relocating ;-) but the aquaponic items may be of interest to some…

I went out and spent a ton on a fish sweater that I can't get to to work. If anyone would be interested in buying it from me for half the price I paid, you can have it all and you can work with the support team. I've been told that even if I get it to work, the exhaust from the unit is likely to melt the plastic roof of my greenhouse.

Thank you ,you guys are probably right ,it has been an uphill battle for reasonably priced hydroton ,I'll check out that site .I just did a test run in one of the beds to make sure the bell siphon was going to work and drain fast ,I am new to this ,worked excellent ,two more beds to test while it fills the tank at the same time ,no leaks yet ,looking forward to cycling the system .

If you are looking for expanded shale check out this company: 

I used some from him and the stuff was awesome.  Light weight, clean, and a great price.  Should be able to ship it there. Good luck!

Comment by Michael Quinones on October 30, 2013 at 9:35am

Consider Expanded Shale instead of Hydroton it is much more cost effective.  I have been using it for about a year and it works well. It is available in Gainsville and I do think also in Ocala.   

Comment by mid falasco on October 30, 2013 at 8:46am

Does anyone have a reasonably priced source in east central florida  for good hydroton ,thanks

Comment by Sylvia Bernstein on October 16, 2013 at 10:38am

If you're near Maryland, I've some some rafts for sale!

Comment by TCLynx on September 26, 2013 at 10:17am

For the lettuce rafts

Uh, I don't know how easy it is to buy from them.  However, perhaps you can get a hold of some one at and see if they have any they are willing to sell.  I got the impression last winter that they do have a surplus.
