"Hi Jim. I am interested in purchasing some of what your offering based on your posts. I think my AP system is cycled with the 15 goldfish i have and I am ready for tilapia. I would also be interested in buying fish food, scuds and worms. Thanks!"

I inherited a moss filled backyard pond, the remote AP turned it gin clear in 2 weeks. It's now much healthier for the inhabitants. I'm breeding and growing with Nile, Mozambique and Nile Hybrids. I sell tilapia fry and fingerlings; bulk fish food, worms, gammarus (scuds) and give plenty of free advise. If you want I'll build you a system too!

Thank you Jim, it's a very good idea than using a coliander lined up with a cloth material.

Hi Jim. this is what I thought the system might look like, but after reading what you had wrote earlier, I might even use bamboo as the top water feeder pipe to the towers its a lot stronger than poly-pipe and cheaper, I just cut it down out of the garden.

Hey Jim,

I am just learing about aquaponics and don't have a system yet. I am also working on the 4th but would love to hear about the tour and perhaps join in when I can.

Hello Jim

I apologize for not responding sooner, but I have moved to a new area where there is no space for my unit, thus it has been mothballed. The towers did not run long enough to test many different crops, but my gut feel was that with the dense media I had, the spacing was too close for long-growing crops.

Thank you. With all this information I received from joining this group I'll be saving a lot of time and money. Thank you very much!!

Thanks Jim!  Took your suggestion and created a blog on the main.  Give me a month and I will be ready for the fish!

HI Jim.  Thanks.  It is actually an Ariel Atom.  The pic is from when my wife and I flew to Oregon and drove it back home.  My brother has an elise.
